    Step into the World of Surgical Robots at Abrazo Health’s Transforming Healthcare Event

    Abrazo Health is offering a unique opportunity for the public to experience what it’s like to be a surgeon in an operating room. The free event, called “Transforming Healthcare: Meet Abrazo’s Surgical Robots,” will take place on Saturday, Oct. 28, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Abrazo Health’s Scottsdale Campus in Phoenix.

    During the event, attendees will have the chance to tour the hospital’s operating rooms, witness first responder vehicles, and gain insights into minimally invasive surgery procedures. Families will also have the opportunity to interact with the hospital’s surgical robots, Mako and daVinci.

    The daVinci robot is equipped with tiny instruments that have a greater range of motion than a human hand. With 3D magnification of the surgical area, surgeons can perform operations through small incisions. Mako, on the other hand, provides surgeons with a 3D-computer-generated patient anatomy model. This technology assists in optimizing socket preparation, implant positioning, and alignment for hip and knee procedures.

    In addition, the event will feature demonstrations of 3D navigation systems used in spine and orthopedic procedures, further showcasing the advancements in medical technology.

    Aside from the medical aspect, families attending the event can enjoy Halloween-themed activities for kids. These activities include games, roving “robots,” and displays of fire trucks, ambulances, and air evac helicopters.

    Don’t miss out on this unique opportunity to explore the world of surgical robots and gain insights into the healthcare field. Click here to learn more and RSVP for the event.

    – Minimally invasive surgery: A surgical technique that utilizes small incisions, specialized instruments, and often a camera to perform surgical procedures with less damage to surrounding tissues.
    – 3D navigation systems: Systems that use three-dimensional technology to assist surgeons in accurately locating and guiding instruments during surgical procedures.
