Saint Joseph in Lexington Implements Advanced Imaging for Minimally Invasive Surgeries


Saint Joseph Hospital and Saint Joseph East are now using an advanced, fully digital video system for performing minimally invasive procedures in general surgery and a broad range of specialties, such as colorectal, bariatric and cardiothoracic surgery. The system converts optical images to digital at the camera head, with the result of visibly improved endoscopic images on all-digital display and recording devices.
