Hartford HealthCare St. Vincent's Medical Center in Bridgeport, Conn., added Synaptive's Modus V 3D exoscope technology for spine and brain surgery.
Modus V is a robotic digital microscope that uses artificial intelligence, according to a June 13 announcement. St. Vincent's Medical Center is the first hospital in New England to adopt the technology.
The device gives surgeons a 3D visualization of the surgical field and provides more depth of field than traditional surgical microscopes. It also has double the magnification of comparable microscopes.
"Due to the improved view of the surgical field, we will be able to perform surgery more efficiently, which will in turn lead to a shorter length of stay and faster recovery for the patient," Vijay Yanamadala, MD, medical director of spine quality and surgical optimization at Hartford HealthCare, said in the release. "We know that less time spent in the operating room, the lower the chance of complications."
