West Boca Medical Center to Open New Boca Center for Orthopedics and Spine CareFeb 8, 2022
Boca Raton, FL – West Boca Medical Center, part of the Palm Beach Health Network, is set to open up its newest hospital addition with the Boca Center for Orthopedic and Spine Care. This unit is designed to provide a seamless continuity of care with advanced treatment options. The Boca Center for Orthopedics and Spine Care enables patients to easily transition from surgery to recovery and rehabilitation. The hospital offers leading edge robotic technology used by our skilled surgeons to provide better outcomes. This dedicated unit allows patients to recover in the comfort of a private, specialized area within the hospital.
“This new center is essential to providing some of the top orthopedic and spine care in our community so patients can receive the most precise and least invasive treatment options in our area,” said George Rizzuto, Chief Executive Officer of West Boca Medical Center. “Our dedicated staff and surgeons are experts in minimally invasive procedures giving our patients a chance to heal quicker and get back to their daily activities.”
Some of the benefits of The Boca Center for Orthopedic and Spine Care include:
- Separate private entry way within our Medical Surgical unit
- 8 patient rooms
- New orthopedically designed walk in showers
- Dedicated staff and upgraded furniture
- Dedicated patient navigator following your continuum of care
- Inpatient rehabilitation
- Outpatient physical therapy
“The investment in this center will truly make a difference in a patient’s clinical outcome and recovery time which will only enhance the offerings here at West Boca Medical Center,” said Dr. Ashish Sahai, Chief of Surgery at West Boca Medical Center. “A key part of this program will be the continuum of care a patient receives from our team from the moment they walk through our doors to the time they are able to be discharged home, we will monitor them every step of the way.”
Patients at the center undergoing inpatient joint replacements can benefit from either the Mako Robotic-Arm Assisted Surgery System or the CORI Surgical System. Both Robotic systems afford enhanced accuracy, potential for longer-lasting implants, less post-operative pain and a quicker recovery.
The Mako Robotic-Arm uses a CT scan to create a 3D model of the patient’s unique bone anatomy. During the surgery, the Mako robotic arm provides real-time information to guide the surgeon in positioning and aligning the implant. It enhances the accuracy and the potential for a longer-lasting implant, with less post-operative pain and a quicker recovery.
West Boca Medical Center is also the first hospital in Boca Raton offering the CORI Surgical System. This system offers knee replacement individually designed for each patient. The CORI system uses an advanced computer program to map out the shape and motion of your knee so your surgeon can create a completely tailored, 3D surgical plan.
