Lourdes Health & Trios Health Bring New Technology for Spinal Procedures to our Community

Posted on January 17, 2020

Tri-Cities, WA – Trios Hospital at Southridge and Lourdes Medical Center recently acquired new technology in the field of robotic guidance and navigation for spinal surgery. This platform technology is designed to improve safety and accuracy within the operating room. The navigational robot provides improved visualization of patient anatomy to help optimize patient treatment. The system is designed to streamline the surgical workflow and reduce radiation exposure to surgeons and staff. This revolutionary robotic navigation platform is the world’s first technology to combine a rigid robotic arm and full navigation capabilities into one adaptable platform for accurate trajectory alignment in spine surgery. The system’s advanced technology solution is designed to enhance safety and improve efficiency for patients, staff and surgeons in the operating room.

“At Trios Health, we chose this specific technology because it will help enhance safety and improve efficiency for our patients and surgical team,” explains John Solheim, Trios CEO. “It does this by promoting less invasive procedures and decreasing surgery time. For our patients, this means less time under anesthesia, improved infection control, and a shorter recovery.”

Rob Monical, Lourdes Health CEO, adds, “The streamlined workflow this new platform offers also means less radiation exposure for our surgical teams. It’s a win-win, offering benefits to both our patients and our staff.”
