Head & Neck Surgical Associates was amongst the first in the world to integrate virtual surgical planning, the use of computers, guided navigation and certain guides that could help transfer a digital computer plan to the patient. HNSA was also one of the first in the world to apply this technique to the spectrum of surgical issues that we treat. We are able to plan our reconstruction or plan our treatment prior to getting the patient on the operating table. This allows us to really precisely predict what our outcomes will be. This has been an evolution over the last ten years and our doctors have developed and made this a new standard of care.
As virtual surgical planning continues to become mainstream, our commitment to the technology is contributing to the evolution of it. There is not a day goes by that we don’t use the tool in some shape or form, whether it be for complex implant placement or facial reconstructive surgery. What we are now able to achieve with computer surgical planning today would have been considered too ambitious even 10 years ago.
To learn more about how virtual surgery planning results in more targeted surgery, lower operating costs, less procedures and shorter recovery times, give our office a call today and speak with someone regarding your consultation with one of our Portland oral surgeons.
