HD Technology Enables MIS

As Medical Director for the Women's Health Clinic at the Regina General Hospital, Dr. John Thiel is proud to offer patients from across southern Saskatchewan care that is second to none in the country, thanks to two new Minimally Invasive Surgical (MIS) suites funded by Hospitals of Regina Foundation donors.

Thiel, a gynecologist and endoscopic surgeon, explains that the new equipment uses cutting edge laparoscopic technology and high definition imaging.

"When I bring people in here to show them the equipment, they are blown away by the quality of the images," he says. "Right from something as simple as equipment on a boom up to high definition monitors and the capture system, it's just been state-of-the-art equipment and has made our jobs as surgeons much easier."
