The spinal care team at BMI The Clementine Churchill Hospital, North London, has been shortlisted for a prestigious 2012 Independent Healthcare Award.

The annual awards recognise outstanding quality and innovation in the independent healthcare sector and reward teams and individuals whose dedication and commitment help make the UK independent healthcare sector truly world-class.
This year, BMI The Clementine Churchill Hospital was recognised in the Best Use of Technology category. Consultant Orthopaedic and Spinal Surgeon Mr Sean Molloy was shortlisted for the implementation of the hospital’s new O-arm Surgical Imaging Device.

The device, the first of its kind in the UK, was acquired earlier this year with an investment of £600,000 made into the hospital’s spinal care service.

Mr Molloy’s implementation of the O-arm Imaging Device was recognised by the judges for improving patient outcomes, reducing recovery times and minimising the risk of complication during the complex spinal procedures.

Mr Molloy commented: “The investment being made into the spinal care service at BMI The Clementine Churchill Hospital, with devices such as the O-arm, is allowing consultants to improve the services, techniques and procedures available to our spinal patients. During a patient’s operation we are now able to view and precisely monitor the placement of screws into a patient’s spine. This precision ensures the highest level of care and means I am able to carry out complex procedures with relative ease.

“The O-arm deserves this recognition and I am confident that it will go on to become the gold standard of spinal imaging in both the NHS and private sector.”
