In today’s healthcare world, technology can play a significant role in helping patients receive the best care.
For example, the daVinci surgical robot can mean smaller incisions, less post-operative pain and faster recovery times. Scottsdale Healthcare has the longest experience with the daVinci robot of any Arizona hospital, acquiring the state's first daVinci in 2001.
Scottsdale Healthcare also:
- Performed Arizona’s first heart procedure using the infrared and fiber optic technology of the LipiScan Coronary Imaging System, which detects hard-to-find artery blockage.
- Was the first in Arizona with the Hansen Sensei Robotic Catheter System, which is used in treating abnormal heart rhythms. The system provides increased accuracy, reduced radiation exposure and shorter procedure times that decrease sedation times.
- Debuted the Phoenix area’s first use of wireless electrocardiograms to help patients with hard-to-diagnose heart conditions. Utilizing Bluetooth technology, the electrocardiograms are made possible by the Sleuth Implantable ECG Monitoring System.
These and other examples make it clear that Scottsdale Healthcare is committed to investing in the latest medical technology. Combined with our Magnet award-winning nurses and best physicians, it enables us to provide world-class patient care.
