Minimally Invasive Procedures
Thanks to breakthroughs in medical technology, many surgical procedures that once involved major operations can now be performed through tiny incisions and instruments guided by sophisticated, miniature cameras. As a result, patients heal faster, can return more quickly to their normal activities, and experience much less scarring.
Some of our surgery suites are specifically designed for these procedures. The high-tech equipment includes computerized touch-screen controls for easy adjustments to lighting levels and positioning of cameras and plasma-screen monitors.
da Vinci Surgery
A Minimally Invasive Surgical Option
Using the da Vinci Surgical System, surgeons operate through just a few small cuts (incisions). The da Vinci System features a magnified 3D high-definition vision system and tiny wristed instruments that bend and rotate far greater than the human wrist. As a result, da Vinci enables your surgeon to operate with enhanced vision, precision, dexterity and control. Since 2000, over 2 million patients have had minimally invasive da Vinci Surgery worldwide.
Comprehensive Care for Joint Replacement
Glenwood Regional Medical Center is participating in a Medicare initiative called the Comprehensive Care for Joint Replacement (CJR) model.
New technologies also enable us to perform many operations on an outpatient basis. These procedures minimize surgical trauma and the time needed for recovery, so you can return to the comfort of your home on the same day as surgery.
