3D technology arrives at HSNPH


September 2013


Colorectal Surgeons, Dr David Clark and Dr Andrew Stevenson have performed mainland Australia’s first 3D laparoscopic colorectal surgery at Holy Spirit Northside Private Hospital.

This new surgery marks a milestone in our Hospital’s surgical history.

Two years ago whilst participating in the 10 year anniversary video, Colorectal Surgeons Dr David Clark and Dr Andrew Stevenson both talked about future technologies and their belief that one day we would see 3D laparoscopic surgery being used in our theatres…

The latest 3D laparoscopic technology has enabled Drs Clark and Stevenson to realise their dreams earlier than they expected!

The OLYMPUS 3D imaging solution, which adopts the world’s first flexible tip HD 3D video laparoscope - the ENDOEYE FLEX 3D™ achieves a new perspective in surgical techniques, provides depth perception and a precise spatial view of anatomy that cannot be achieved with traditional 2D systems.

Dr Stevenson said, “The new technology provides improved speed, accuracy and precision for surgical tasks. This is revolutionary technology”.

The doctors were also able to use the world’s first rapid cutting and vessel sealing surgical instrument- THUNDERBEAT™ from OLYMPUS which employs fully integrated bipolar and ultrasonic technology.
