Just minutes in the operating room can make a significant difference in the care of the patient, beginning as early as room setup.1 As many surgical teams are familiar with traditional flat tables, upgrading to a customizable table leads to a change in workflow that ultimately benefits the entire surgical process. When surgical teams are guided through the setup process, they are able to spend less time preparing for a procedure, allowing them to treat patients more efficiently.

Believing this efficiency is central to clinical satisfaction and patient outcomes, Mizuho OSI is committed to improving the education of clinical teams through its latest setup guides. The Company offers this support to customers at no additional charge, greatly improving the ease of use of its solutions. Each guide includes visual references, standard component installation instructions, table features, procedure setup instructions, storage and components, and optional accessories for the device. Together with its full portfolio of surgical solutions, Mizuho OSI is supporting care teams through continued innovation in the OR.

Currently, these startup guides are available for the following solutions:

“Research has shown the importance of patient positioning during complex orthopedic and spinal procedures, and we’re always looking for ways to empower clinical teams to transform this research into practice,” said Anthony Zannis, marketing director at Mizuho OSI. “Our apps and setup guides help educate clinical teams on the multitude of ways Mizuho OSI tables can improve the surgical experience. Complementing our smart OR solutions, these tools allow hospitals to take full advantage of our partnership and provide the best care possible to their patients.”

The mobile applications are available to Apple and Android users, with web-based setup guides available on Mizuho OSI’s website.

Mizuho OSI Hana Table Featured in Live Surgical Broadcast at Inaugural Arthroplasty Conference in India

Unique Table Positioning Capabilities Optimize the Anterior Approach to Total Hip Arthroplasty, Helping Minimize Pain and Recovery Time

UNION CITY, Calif.Feb. 20, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Mizuho OSI®, a leading manufacturer of specialty surgical tables, pressure management solutions, and table-specific patient care kits, today announced it will be attending the first Annual Arthroplasty Conference, Hyderabad (AACH) at the Hyderabad International Convention Center in India from February 24-25, 2018. Using the Mizuho OSI Hana® Orthopedic Surgery Table, Dr. Andrew Wickline will be conducting a total hip replacement applying the anterior approach at KIMS Hospital Secunderabad, which will be broadcast live to attendees of the conference on February 24 at 9:00 a.m. IST.

Dr. Wickline is an orthopedic surgeon in Upstate New York and is the state’s volume leader in joint replacement. Working with Dr. Uday Krishna Myneni at KIMS Hospital, he seeks to showcase the benefits of the anterior approach and how technology like the Hana Table can optimize this surgical technique through the broadcast. Anterior Hip Replacement allows the surgeon to reach the hip joint from the front of the hip, leaving muscles attached to the pelvis and femur undisturbed. This method of hip replacement minimizes pain and the time from surgery to recovery for the patient.

“After introducing the anterior approach into my surgical practice, I have seen firsthand the impact the procedure can have on patient recovery and satisfaction,” said Dr. Wickline, Genesee Orthopedics. “As someone who strives for the combination of perfection and efficiency in my practice, the ability to deliver consistent, superior outcomes with the least amount of disruption to the patient is my goal. This innovation allows the majority of patients to go home the same day, lowering cost and improving patient satisfaction. I look forward to sharing my experiences with colleagues at the AACH.”

As techniques and technologies around arthroplasty have evolved in recent years, the AACH is the first international conference devoted to connecting aspiring and practicing arthroplasty surgeons with masters in arthroplasty from across the world. The conference includes panel discussions, case studies, technique videos, and live surgical demonstrations alongside free paper sessions that allow upcoming arthroplasty surgeons to showcase their work on an international platform.

“The AACH fills a much-needed niche in the orthopedics industry, fostering the transference of knowledge between surgeons of different generations, and even countries,” said Greg Neukirch, Vice President of Marketing and Sales at Mizuho OSI. “We’re honored to have one of our tables featured in this year’s program with Dr. Wickline, and look forward to the ongoing discussion and education about the anterior approach throughout the industry.”
