The latest in image-guided surgery arrives at our Neurosurgery Unit

The neuronavegator, integrated into one of our hospital’s operating rooms, is unique in Ibiza and provides our Neurosurgery Unit with the greatest accuracy in our procedures, which translates into enhanced security for the patient.

 

The device works like a GPS where the vehicle is the surgical instrument. The surgeon is permanently informed of the instrument’s exact position inside the patient’s body. The navigation system would be the satellites detecting the instrument’s position within the surgical field. And finally, the patient’s radiological images would be the map guiding the surgeon into the surgical goal. These images can be visualized on the navigator’s screen at all times.

The neuronavegator’s accuracy offers security to the patient, allows for a less invasive approach, minimizes complications, and reduces the number of re-interventions.
