As important as the team approach and expert personnel are the advanced technologies our surgeons and care team employ in treating total joint replacement patients.
Many of these advances are technologies usually reserved for larger hospitals in bigger cities. And it is with such technologies that Sky Lakes Medical Center continues to attract top physicians and staff, eager to be on the cutting edge of their respective fields.
One of the newest technologies in use at the Center for Total Joint Care is a computer-aided navigation system that enables our surgeons to make precise incisions and place implants in as close to perfect alignment as possible. This system has consistently resulted in quicker recoveries and shorter hospital stays.
New technologies also bolster the efficiency in assessing the conditions and needs of the patient. High-tech digital-imaging technology allows physicians and technicians to view X-rays, MRI or CT Scans from any medical center-based PC within seconds.
“The technology at Sky Lakes is truly state of the art. We have everything we need to provide the highest quality of care - from digital X-rays to direct access to the hospital lab to computerized assistance in the placement of prosthesis.”
