Abstract:
Poster presented at AORN's 58th Annual Congress: Scottsdale Healthcare Thompson Peak Hospital (TPK) is a small community hospital with six operating rooms (ORs) located in the majestic McDowell Mountains in sunny Scottsdale, Arizona. TPK began providing patient care on November 5, 2007. TPK may appear to be in the infancy phase for a new health care facility but TPK has exceeded the planned expectations with providing advanced Minimally Invasive Surgery (MIS) procedures. Some examples are daVinci robotic hysterectomy, anterior hip arthroplasty, and extreme lateral interbody fusion (XLIF) for spine surgery. When initiating these new and successful MIS programs at TPK, they required team work and collaboration from TPK administration, surgeons, anesthesiologists, nursing, surgical technicians, and CSPD. The daVinci robotic system is used primarily for gynecology oncology procedures. There is a significant decrease in blood loss and a much more precise surgery performed. The MIS Anterior Hip Arthroplasty (AHA) provides a smaller surgical incision than the conventional Total Hip Arthoplasty (THA). These patients do not require the traditional abductor pillow, and are able to stand and walk much sooner compared to the traditional THA recovery. The XLIF is not for every patient but for those patients that qualify, it is less invasive then the anterior approach. With this XLIF approach, it allows the surgeon to make a smaller incision and avoid major muscle groups, major organs, and major blood vessels. With these TPK MIS procedures, our patients have minimal tissue damage, decreased recovery time, less postoperative pain, and less pain medication is needed, as well as a shorter hospital stay. There is marked improvement with patient satisfaction and the quality of our patients lifestyles!
