SURGICAL NAVIGATION SYSTEM:

The Department of Ear, Nose and Throat Surgery at Mouwasat Hospital in Dammam has introduced the Surgical Navigation System, which is one of the latest international technologies used during advanced surgeries of the sinuses and the base of the skull with endoscopy, knowing that Mouwasat Hospital in Dammam is the first and only private hospital in the Eastern Province in providing this device and this technology.

By using the navigation device, the surgeon can see in details, accurately and step by step the condition of all affected areas in the nose, sinuses, skull base and eye area during endoscopic surgery, which improves surgical performance and increases the level of success of the surgery by:

  • Enabling the surgeon to navigate in the sinuses, the base of the skull and all areas around them and locate each area reached by the surgeon’s tools, this happens through using and integrating the modern radiological data of patients “CT and MRI” with the surgical navigation system, camera unit and endoscope.
  • Raising the level of precision in surgical procedures.
  • Improving the outcomes of the surgical procedure and its success rate and ensuring the removal of the entire disease.
  • Reducing the duration of the surgery.
  • Accurately locate the hernia at the base of the skull and facilitate the repair and patching process.
