Advanced Expertise & Best Practice Procedures
State-of-the-art surgical theaters
Large surgical theaters easily accommodate a full surgical team and the equipment for a variety of surgeries. ORs are equipped with the latest in LED surgical lighting and the most up-to-date video system. Booms from the ceiling hold the camera and video equipment that project the image from the surgical field to two large high-definition monitors on either side of the operating table. A third monitor is located on the wall above the patient’s head where all surgical staff can view it. OR staff can control and change the information displayed on the screens, including any radiology images required for reference.
Virtual Implant Positioning™ (VIP) System
Improvements in the design of orthopedic implants have come a long way. Beachwood Medical Center is proud to offer patient specific instrumentation through the Arthrex VIP system, virtual implant positioning. This online preoperative planning system offers reusable patient-specific surgical instrumentation for total shoulder arthroplasty and reverse shoulder arthroplasty. Every patient is unique in his or her anatomy, and orthopedic surgeons take great care to match the implant to the patient. The VIP system allows surgeons to better understand their patient’s anatomy and plan for the best fit. Having this knowledge before surgery results in a more efficient and less-invasive procedure.
