Centennial Hills Hospital Unveils State-of-the-Art Surgery Scanning System

Centennial Hills Hospital became the first medical facility in the state to offer a state-of-the-art scanning system known as the O-arm.

The system takes hundreds of multi-dimensional pictures in seconds in the operating room. O-arm is used for spine surgeries, and it allows a real-time look at the problem. With that kind of precision, doctors can pinpoint where to place hardware, such as screws, while avoiding nerves, muscles, tissues or bones.

Doctor Yevgeniy Khavkin, the Director of Spine and Neurosurgery at Centennial Hills Hospital, was the first physician at the hospital to use the system during a surgery Monday.

“Time is critical in the operating room because you don’t want to keep patients under anesthesia any longer than necessary” Dr. Khavkin said. 

The system reduces overall time in surgery, which lessens the chance for complications.

The O-arm can also be used for neurological and orthopedic surgeries.
