PRESS RELEASE: Sydney’s Southwest area first in NSW to offer world’s most advanced imaging device for orthopaedic surgery.
Who would have thought that the quiet leafy suburb of Chipping Norton would become home to one of the world’s most advanced pieces of medical imaging technology for orthopaedic surgery.
Liverpool Day Surgery has been selected by Device Technologies Australia to be one of the first users of the Synergy HD3 imaging platform – a state of the art device that has been designed to enhance imaging and reporting for orthopaedic specialists.
Associate Professor John Ireland is an orthopaedic surgeon with Sydney Bone and Joint Clinic which is located at Liverpool Day Surgery.
“It’s fantastic that we now have access to this level of equipment in the Southwest, not so long ago it would have been unheard of that this area of Sydney would be privy to be one of the first users of this level of technology. Liverpool Day Surgery has long been known within the medical industry as a first class provider of surgical services and this new equipment now means that we will be able to ensure our patients have an even higher level of service as well as improve our surgical outcomes. It’s great news.” Said Assoc. Prof. Ireland.
The SynergyHD3 imaging is a commanding imaging platform offered by Arthrex and distributed by Device Technologies Australia, featuring a true 1080p HD programmable camera head. A LED “xenon-bright” light source and an image management system all in one tablet controlled device. The networked based system allows live video and integrates three consoles into one and revolutionises endoscopic visualisation and image management. The iPad application provides specialist doctors with tools to manage stills, video recordings, and patient education. Utilising an iPad, doctors can review, edit, annotate and tag stills and video recordings, as well as create and instantly transmit images, videos and educational postoperative reports to patients.
“We are very proud that we were selected by Device technologies to be chosen to use this latest equipment and are pleased to be able to offer this service to our doctors and our patients”. Tony Geftakis – CEO Liverpool Day Surgery
