Your gift today will help purchase a state-of-the-art neurosurgical microscope.
Every day at Epworth our neurosurgeons undertake some of the most complex and intricate surgeries.
And with your help, we want to make sure they have some of the most technologically advanced equipment in the world to perform these extraordinary surgeries and provide the best treatment and care for our patients.
Your gift towards the purchase of the state-of-the-art KINEVO 900 neurosurgical microscope will help patients undergoing complex brain and spinal surgery.
This microscope will enable our experienced and committed surgeons to undertake even the most complex surgeries, including the removal of tumours from the brain and spine.
Glioblastoma Multiforma (GBM), is an aggressive form of tumour of the brain. It’s a notoriously challenging tumour to remove surgically because it can be difficult to see where the tumour stops, and the brain begins.
But the KINEVO 900 has features which make this distinction much clearer for the surgeons when they are operating. The tumour glows fluorescent pink when viewed under a special lens on the microscope. This allows the surgeon to check how far and how much more of the tumour needs to be removed without endangering the normal pathway of the brain.
And this can potentially improve the overall survival of the patient.
Please make a gift today so we can purchase the KINEVO 900 as soon as possible.
Epworth is at the forefront of neurosurgery. We have outstanding surgeons, experienced and dedicated clinical staff and we want to provide them with state-of-the-art equipment, so our patients receive the best care.
The KINEVO 900 is one of the best neurosurgical microscopes available in the world today. It provides a better range of vision and better illumination for our surgeons when they are performing complex and intricate surgeries.
As neurosurgeon Patrick Chan explained:
The KINEVO 900 allows us to see things more clearly which enables us to operate on structures that are only a few millimetres in size.
The KINEVO 900 microscope will be used all day, every day for a range of critical spinal surgeries, brain surgery and the repair of aneurysms. Any surgery that operates on the head or spine.
The purchase of this state-of-the-art equipment will allow Epworth to provide exceptional treatment and care to patients undergoing these critical surgeries.
Your gift will help to make sure Epworth continues to have some of the best equipment in the world to deliver the best possible outcome for our patients.
