Another first for the San

The San is the first hospital in Australia to introduce a new technology platform into its operating theatres that streamlines surgical processes delivering efficiencies previously not possible.

Unison utilises a cloud-based web portal system with the latest 1080p HD cameras and an intuitive Tablet interface.

It allows surgeons to capture crystal clear images and video, develop post-operative reports with annotated images, including rehabilitation instructions, and instantly and securely send them to the patient or referring doctor.

“The Arthrex System HD3 is a state-of-the-art evolution in imaging that provides excellent picture quality and interconnectivity opportunities designed to improve patient outcomes, meet technology advances and provide education and training opportunities“ said Dr Philip Middleton who has a particular interest in Endocrine and Laparoscopic Surgery.

“Excellent quality images with high resolution, depth of field and dynamic range, maximise our ability to undertake procedures laparoscopically – resulting in less trauma and complications, faster recovery and rehabilitation, and a better patient experience.

This is particularly relevant for the gall bladder, hernia repair and Thorascopic and abdominal endoscopic procedures I do, but equally applies to orthopaedic, urological or colorectal procedures undertaken by my medical colleagues.

The integration of the high definition camera, the LED light source and an image management system into one compact console made it the front runner out of other imaging systems I reviewed.

It reaffirms Sydney Adventist Hospital’s reputation for constantly seeking excellence in patient care.”

With a particular interest in surgical training, Dr Middleton also understands the systems future potential.

“The technology provides an exciting ability to broadcast, rebroadcast and retain procedures for review and training - providing students with unprecedented access to learning scenarios.

It also offers the ability to file imagery from the procedures as part of the medical record.

Synergy HD3 Imaging is improving current standards while also ensuring that we are equipped to meet the challenges and the opportunities of the future.”
