Orthopaedic surgeons use both surgical and nonsurgical means to treat musculoskeletal trauma, sports injuries, degenerative diseases, infections, tumors, and congenital disorders.
A gastroenterologist or general surgeon uses an endoscopy to diagnose and, sometimes, treat conditions that affect the esophagus, stomach and beginning of the small intestine (duodenum). Highlands Regional Medical Center offers high-definition imaging for medical and surgical endoscopy that can help save lives. This revolutionary technology is part of a new universal imaging platform specifically designed for use across medical and surgical endoscopy. The flexibility of this system allows for a common platform to be used for endoscopic observation and minimally invasive surgery in the operating room during a colonoscopy, upper GI endoscopy, bronchoscopy, laparoscopy and more.
The EVIS EXERA II™ universal imaging platform from Olympus is the world’s first to deliver both high-definition (HDTV) and Narrow Band Imaging™ (NBI) technology. The EVIS EXERA II system produces an impressive 1080 lines of resolution. Compared to conventional systems, high-definition endoscopy combined with Olympus’ proprietary Narrow Band Imaging, provides doctors with vivid, sharp and detailed images with better contrast, which in turn may help physicians provide patients with more accurate diagnoses.
The ACS recommends that beginning at age 50, both men and women should be screened for colon and rectal cancer. People with CRC risk factors, such as a personal history of CRC or polyps or a strong family history of CRC or polyps, should talk to their doctor about starting CRC screening earlier and/or undergoing screening more often.
