In 2019, Medicine Hat resident LaDonna Hammel was in the hospital for hip surgery. She was waiting for something special: the Hana Orthopedic Surgery Table, a modern surgical bed designed for better, safer operations. These beds don’t just improve safety and recovery. They get patients like LaDonna home sooner. She was able to go home to her family just 24 hours after the operation. This greatly reduced her hospital stay and quickly began her healing journey.
What is the Hana Orthopedic Surgery Table?
The Hana Orthopedic Surgery Table is an ultra-modern patient positioning device that makes orthopedic procedures safer and easier. It can position the patient’s legs independently, holding them firmly in place for the entire operation or enabling a wide range of movements for unobstructed tissue access. It’s constructed of carbon fibre and will not show up on radioscopic scans such as X-rays, allowing for high visibility of tissue at any operative stage.
The generous support of our community and surrounding area has allowed us to fund the purchase of another Hana Table for the Medicine Hat Regional Hospital. Our Board of Directors has approved the purchase of this special equipment!
