Lake Cumberland Regional using 4K-3D Exoscope for surgery

First in Ky to offer precision surgery benefits of ORBEYE system
ORBEYE improves visualization and ergonomics in precision surgery at Lake Cumberland Regional Hospital with high-resolution 4K-3D digital imagery up to 26X magnification to help physicians see minute anatomical details.

SOMERSET, Ky. — Lake Cumberland Regional Hospital (LCRH) recently announced the availability of procedures using the ORBEYE exoscope, a video microscope that enables surgical teams to view the structure of tissue, blood vessels, and other anatomical features in 3D, at up to 26x magnification and at a resolution that is four times greater than HD on a 55-inch 4K-3D monitor.

Magnified visualization is critical to precision micro-surgical procedures. LCRH is the first hospital in Kentucky to acquire this innovative technology.

Every moment is critical in surgery, and precious time can be saved with specialized equipment that allows for natural three-dimensional vision, wide magnification, and working distance, excellent visibility, and versatility during surgical procedures.

“We are very excited to use this innovative medical technology for microsurgery,” said Neurosurgeon Magdy El-Kalliny, MD. “Performing microsurgery with the ORBEYE is much different. With advanced visualization and ergonomics, we are able to work more precisely and efficiently, which translates to improved patient outcomes.”

Robert Parker, Lake Cumberland Regional Hospital CEO, explained, “Not only does the ORBEYE impact patient benefits as Dr. El-Kalliny describes, but it also provides versatility and applications that achieve ergonomic benefits to the surgeons during surgery.”

ORBEYE allows for improved visualization and ergonomics in precision surgery and overall ease of use, offering the following benefits:

• High-resolution 4K-3D digital imagery up to 26X magnification helps physicians see minute anatomical details: The ORBEYE delivers three-dimensional video imagery four times more detailed than standard HD imagery and can be magnified to the power of 26X. Providing a larger and broader color range, which is more natural and realistic, the ORBEYE helps physicians reliably identify tissue boundaries and see blood vessels and lesions. With no delay in image processing, the ORBEYE delivers this information in real-time, allowing for smoother surgical procedures.

• Display of the procedure on a 55-inch 4K-3D monitor improves ergonomic positioning for surgeons, reducing surgeon fatigue and facilitating team surgery: The ORBEYE displays the magnified imagery on a large monitor, which eliminates the need for the surgeon to wear an eyepiece loupe. With “heads-up” surgery, surgeons can operate in a more comfortable working posture without having to peer into a microscope lens. Moreover, because the large 55-inch monitor enables the entire surgical team to view the same image, it allows the surgeon to work side by side with the assistant in the same orientation, which optimizes the workflow for multiple surgeons. It improves efficiency by allowing information to be shared with other surgical staff, which is especially helpful in education and training.

• Usability features include compact size and a small and flexible head that streamlines operation: Digital technology has made the microscope unit much smaller, allowing for faster setup. ORBEYE’s small and flexible head enables the surgeon to observe the surgical field from various angles, facilitating multiple surgical positions, approaches, and techniques. The streamlined and compact optical head design provides ample surgical site space for unobstructed hand and instrument movements intraoperatively. The ORBEYE exoscope can be customized to the needs of each specialty, with features such as Auto Focus, Near Infrared Imaging Capabilities, and more. Individual user profiles offer enhanced customization to settings on the ORBEYE, the camera head, and the foot pedal.

Dr. Magdy El-Kalliny, Dr. Amr El-Naggar, and LCRH Neurosurgery team members have recently adopted the ORBEYE, a 4K-3D video microscope, which can enable more accurate surgery by providing high-resolution 3D imaging.

Lake Cumberland Regional is a 295-bed acute care hospital that has served the people of South-Central Kentucky since 1976. It has more than 40 physician specialties and nearly 200 physicians on staff.
