O’Connor Hospital has some of the most advanced diagnostic, interventional, surgical and other technologies available to deliver the best care for our patients.
One recent addition to our Surgery Department is the advanced O-arm Intra-operative Imaging System. This complete multi-dimensional system brings imaging during surgery to a new level. It is a vital tool for our surgeons during both minimally invasive and traditional open spine surgical procedures. Improved imaging provided by the system makes it possible to perform complex and delicate spine procedures with even greater precision. Learn more about our Spine Care and Pain Management Services.
Another advanced technology being used throughout the hospital, is TRU-D SmartUVCTM, a 5-foot-5 disinfection robot that uses powerful ultraviolet light to kill harmful pathogens, including viruses, bacteria and fungi. TRU-D protects the integrity of our clinical environment and, ultimately, the level of care delivered to every patient who walks through the door. Read about TRU-D. See a virtual demo. (YouTube)
