Advanced Technology for Spine Surgery
OSF Saint Anthony Medical Center is the only hospital in Rockford using the new O-ArmTM advanced visualization technology.
The O-Arm is a cutting-edge tool that gives surgeons a real-time 3D view of the spine during surgery. This eliminates the need to wear lead protective apparel during the surgery and provides more flexibility for patient positioning since the machine maneuvers around the patient.
In addition, the O-Arm allows for more minimally invasive surgeries and results in faster recovery and less pain for patients.
