Q: How will the support of Stouffville Starlight Gala make a difference?  

A: Funds raised from Stouffville Starlight Gala 2020 will support the new hybrid OR at MSH. The Hybrid OR, will increase the surgical capacity, reduce wait times, and enhance patient safety and efficiency. For both the surgeon and the patients, less pain, a quicker recovery and shorter wait times are mutual goals. With your support, leading edge technology use in the operating room will help ensure a better overall care experience for MSH’s surgical patients and their families. 


The Hybrid OR — Bringing Innovation to MSH

With 28 surgeons performing over 20,200 surgeries at MSH every year, including preventative and diagnostic procedures such as biopsy, colonoscopy and endoscopy, new surgical equipment and technology is an ongoing need. It is imperative to keep up with demand as well as keep pace with medical advances.

To meet the increasing demand and optimize health outcomes, the time has come for MSH to outfit a new fluoroscopy-equipped hybrid Operating Room (OR). A fluoroscopy-equipped OR will immediately benefit the urology program as well as enable future growth opportunities for cardiac and stroke interventions, our orthopaedic program and spinal surgeries.

You can enable the growth of MSH’s surgical program by helping fund the new hybrid OR renovation project including:

  • Installation of fluoroscopy-equipped table and GreenLight Laser
  • Acquisition of anaesthetic machine, multiple movable booms, light sources, electro surgery machine and additional scopes, all to support patient safety and shorter wait times
  • Additional infrastructure requirements including a new dedicated air handling unit and modifications to existing heating and cooling capabilities
  • Additional power and electrical and data communication

 

Building on the success of our 2018 Planting Seeds – Growing Friends Gala, funds raised from the Stouffville Starlight Gala will support the new hybrid OR at MSH. The Hybrid OR, will increase the surgical capacity, reduce wait times, and enhance patient safety and efficiency. For both the surgeon and the patients, less pain, a quicker recovery and shorter wait times are mutual goals. With your support, leading edge technology use in the operating room will help ensure a better overall care experience for MSH’s surgical patients and their families.

Fluoroscopy

Best described as an ‘x-ray’ movie, fluoroscopy is an imaging tool that uses x-rays to obtain real-time moving images, giving a very detailed look at areas of the body including bones, organs, muscles and joints.

Greenlight Laser Therapy

GreenLight Laser Therapy uses a laser beam to remove prostate tissue for patients with an enlarged prostate (BPH). It offers shorter hospital stay and a faster recovery than traditional surgical options.
