Premier Surgical Institute Hospital Offers Latest Advancement in Real-Time Multidimensional Surgical Imaging Technology With Only O-arm® 2 in Region

Hospital's Continued Expansion Ensures Equipment Will Always Be State-of-the-Art

GALENA, KS--(Marketwired - May 17, 2016) - Premier Surgical Institute inpatient and outpatient hospital, located and owned by the city of Galena and serving Joplin, MO, as well as the entire Four State Area and beyond, announced today that its Imaging Center has acquired the latest in real-time surgical imaging technology, and is currently the only hospital in the region with an O-arm® 2 by Medtronic.

The O-arm® 2 provides surgeons with unprecedented real-time high-quality multidimensional intra-operative images of the anatomy during surgery. In concert with the accompanying StealthStation® Surgical Navigation System, surgeons can see faster, more accurate visuals that allow for enhanced surgical precision.

"Premier Surgical Institute was already one of only two hospitals in the region to have the first O-arm," said Kerri Williams, Director of Imaging Services. "As compared to other current methods of visualization during surgery, our patients and surgeons will greatly benefit from the O-arm® 2's capabilities to increase visibility of a large real-time field of vision."

In addition to surgical imaging, Premier Surgical Institute's Imaging Center offers Premier's trademark spa-like environment and low-cost pricing to patients from around the region needing Ultrasound, MRI, CT/CAT Scans, Digital X-Ray and Fluoroscopy. Premier Imaging Center also offers Ultrasounds with no doctor referral required for Gender Reveal (with complimentary heartbeat bear recorded during each reveal), and for Stroke Prevention Screenings. All imaging is performed by Premier's highly trained and friendly, certified imaging staff, each with more than 10 years of clinical experience, and whose number one focus is patient comfort. Unlike other hospitals in the region with average delays of at least one week, Premier Imaging Center schedules patients immediately, with fast and accurate exams and prompt results provided the same day, in most cases.

Premier Surgical Institute has been honored with the 2016 Women's Choice Award® recognizing America's 100 Best Hospitals for Patient Experience, and was also the 2015 recipient of the National Research Corporation Path to Excellence Award for its commitment to improving the patient experience. Premier currently offers General Surgery, Neck-to-Toe Orthopedics and Sports Medicine exclusively by the surgeons of Orthopaedic Specialists of the Four States (Ortho Four States), Urologic, Gastrointestinal, Bariatric (Weight Loss Surgery), and Maxillofacial Surgeries as well as Pain Management, an Imaging Center and Wellness Offerings such as free Weight Loss Surgery Seminars and Healthy Cooking classes.
