At Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital we take pride in being one of the first centres in the country to provide comprehensive stroke care from acute phase upto neuro rehabilitation. We offer the fastest response time to manage stroke emergencies and provide a door to needle time of less than 60 minutes. Our Centre for Neurosciences provides exceptional care in neurology, neurosurgery and interventional neuroradiology with one of the highest number of endovascular interventions in acute stroke management. We are highly committed to offer world-class stroke care to our patients and continuously upgrade our technologies for the same.
To increase our efficacy in treating stroke patients we are now equipped with a lifesaving advanced software - Rapid AI (Artificial Intelligence) that helps treat stroke emergencies at the earliest. Rapid AI empowers doctors to rapidly assess the severity of the stroke and make faster, more accurate diagnostic and treatment decisions for stroke.
Rapid AI helps process perfusion imaging (a way of looking at the pattern of blood flow in the brain), which previously took 30 minutes to obtain now reach the stroke care team in 30 seconds. Our team of neuroradiologist can quickly analyze the CT and MRI and pinpoint the exact location in the brain that lacks blood supply thereby guiding neurologist and interventional neuroradiologist to decide the further course of treatment. Patients with clots lose about 3 million brain cells per minute when the brain is deprived of oxygen and blood. A fast diagnosis helps our team of experts take quick decisions and save a patient from the devastating consequences of a stroke like death or permanent disability. Rapid AI enables our team of specialists to treat patients with the most severe types of stroke even as late as 24 hours (in selected cases upto 48 hours) after the beginning of the symptoms.
Advantages of using Rapid AI:
Helps patients receive immediate, lifesaving stroke treatment
Improves patient outcomes by quickly identifying patients for clot retrieval
Artificial Intelligence reduces diagnosis time & helps for faster and accurate decision making
Helps doctors select patients who will benefit most from treatment and will have minimal complications
Helps select patients for treatment within and beyond the Golden window of 6 hours.
O - Arm O2 Intra-operative 2D/3D Imaging System and Spine Surgery Suite
Kokilaben Hospital has recently launched Western India's first O-arm® O2 Intra-operative 2D/3D Imaging System and Spine Surgery Suite – one of its kinds.
Spine Surgery Suite is a unique concept which has some essential and state-of- the-art technologies coming together for getting the best possible outcomes. Technologies that make the Spine Surgery Suite so special are O-arm® O2 Surgical Imaging System, StealthStation® S8 ® Surgical Navigation System, Trios ® Surgical Table and OPMI Pentero 900 Surgical Microscopes.
Imaging is of vital importance for any surgical team intending to get the best outcomes. The O-arm® O2 Intra-operative Imaging System takes intra-operative imaging to another level by giving surgeons on-time information, when they need it most.
Advantages of the O-Arm and Spine Surgery Suite
Viewing options include 3D orthogonal and oblique views, 2D views, Maximum Intensity Projection, Surface rendering and Digital Light box views.
All motions of the O-arm® O2System gantry and source-detector- unit are motor controlled.
It has a simple, intuitive control panel that allows control of all motions and X-ray settings.
The O-arm® O2remembers your best views. The programmable memory stores the exact position of gantry and detector as well as any X-ray technique in up to four imaging positions.
Motorization technique for easy positioning in the OR Patented "breakable" gantry opens to allow lateral patient access.
Multiple draping options exist, including several custom drapes for easy and fast drapping.
The closed gantry is designed to stay sterile during the whole procedure, eliminating parts moving in and out of the sterile field.
The impressive image quality of the O-arm® O2 System is based on the use of distortion free flat panel technology. The state-of- the art 30 cm x 40 cm flat panel detector with 3 megapixels guarantees exceptional resolution and a high dynamic range for greater accuracy.
Surgeons have the flexibility to choose between a full 3D scan and a simple, low- radiation 2D fluoroscopic image, depending on the information needed.
Images are displayed on the large, 30" digital flat screen of the O-arm® O2 System Mobile View Station providing the surgeon with excellent visibility from the operative field.
NIM NERVE MONITORING SYSTEM
Intraoperative NIM nerve monitoring system enable neurosurgeons to identify, confirm, and monitor motor nerve function to help reduce the risk of nerve damage during skull based procedures like acoustic neuroma and glomus tumour surgeries.It also helps to monitor the nerve during spine operations like pedicle screw fixation.
Cavitron Ultrasonic Aspirator (CUSA)
It is used in Brain and spinal tumour surgery. It increases safety, reduces operating time during removal of these tumours
Navigation systems are like GPS devices .It guides neurosurgeons during brain tumour surgery, Spine pedicle fixation procedure and Deep brain stimulation surgery by integrating the most advanced surgical planning software, instrument tracking technologies and intraoperative imaging.
ZEISS OPMI Pentero Microscope
Provides neurosurgeons with clearer and more powerful magnification during brain and spinetumour removal and resections. More than 90% of neurosurgeries are done with the help of this Microscope.
ArtisdBA biplane angiography system
It is used for simultaneous digital biplanar imaging and is designed to overcome the challenges of modern angiography and interventional procedures in neuroradiology and universal angiography. Spine operations like Transforaminal endoscopic discectomy, Vertebroplasty and Kyphoplasty are done using this system.
3T Magnetom trio
Utilizing shorter scan times, the 3T machine maximises patient comfort without compromising quality. The superb reliability of high field MRI allows to differentiate between benign and potentially hazardous medical conditions with confidence. Very useful to investigate Epilepsy patients and in DBS surgery for Parkinsons disease.
