It’s an operating room of the future available to doctors now. This week, Rochester General Health System introduced a new surgical suite that integrates many state-of-the-art applications.
Hospital officials say the operating room incorporates a combination of equipment, technology, patient information and new processes that creates a safe and efficient surgical environment.
“With the range of new technologies coming into medicine, we’re dedicated to applying each element within an appropriate niche,” said Director of Robotic Surgery Dr. John Valvo. “That allows us to provide an environment for our patients which is safer, smarter and more secure.”
The new operating room features hands-free motion sensing applications, high-definition visual equipment and other enhancements.
The upgrades were made possible in part by a $1-million grant.
