We offer the BrainLab for orthopedics, a surgical technique also known as image-guided surgery, which utilizes a powerful computer system to support surgeons prior to and during joint replacement surgery for a more precise procedure.
Our Biplane is used for neuroendovascular procedures and stroke care. This procedure utilizes microcatheters which are inserted in the groin area and, under X-ray guidance, are threaded through the blood vessels leading into the brain, providing patients with a less-invasive procedure and shorter recovery time for neurosurgical procedures and stroke care.
Presence Saint Joseph Medical Center is home to a 64-slice CT scanner, technology that has four times as many detectors as a typical multi-detector CT scanner and provides a very high-quality image in a remarkably short time. In fact, it can produce detailed pictures of any organ and blood vessels in seconds in three-dimensional imaging, which provides physicians with a clearer view.
The Trilogy system is a remarkable advancement in the treatment of cancer, and is now available right here in Will County. The new Trilogy system allows our cancer care specialists to destroy cancer with a beam as small as a period at the end of a sentence and it brings more precise cancer treatment closer to home.
To better care for our expectant mothers, we have added a Maternal-Fetal Medicine physician, Guillermo E.
