Minimally Invasive Heart Surgery

Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center is one of the first hospitals in Palm Beach County offering minimally invasive heart surgery as a treatment option for patients suffering from heart valve disease. Unlike traditional open heart surgery where the breast bone needs to be surgically separated, minimally invasive valve surgery is performed through a small incision between the ribs.

Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center First Hospital in Florida to Implement CT-Free Robotic Orthopedic Surgery

Jan 16, 2019

Palm Beach Gardens, Fla.-January 16th 2019 - Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center is the first and only hospital in the state of Florida now using the NAVIO orthopedic surgical system to help surgeons perform precise and accurate partial knee replacement surgeries using the JOURNEY UNI knee. This technology for partial knee replacements uses a CT-free intra-operative registration, planning and navigation platform to assist the surgeon in building patient-specific surgical plans.

“NAVIO robotics assists the surgeon in preparing the bone with the precision of robotics in a freehand sculpting technique”, said CEO Teresa Urquhart. This technology is going to give patients less pain and swelling post-operatively than traditional total joint replacement methods.”

Some of the potential benefits for this type of surgery include:

  • Does not require a pre-operative CT-scan.
  • Fewer doctor office visits to prep for surgery.
  • Minimally-invasive.
  • Freehand sculpting intended to allow for better precision and accuracy.
  • Designed to have less pain and swelling post-operatively – Can lead to faster recovery times.

With no pre-operative CT-scan required, NAVIO patients receive the benefits of robotic assistance without additional time spent for pre-operative procedures. Instead, the surgeon collects anatomical data during the procedure to build a 3D model of the patient’s knee. This information helps the surgeon place the implant and balance the knee’s ligaments for optimal alignment and well-balanced knee.
