Technologies Ahead of Their Time
Contemporary medicine develops opportunities for medical treatment which helps patients recover faster and without complications, and also for continuous enrichment of doctors' knowledge and skills, and by means of creating ultra modern technologies and medical equipment.
The ambitions of Trakia Hospital - Stara Zagora, since the establishment of the hospital in 2009, have always been in the direction of introducing the latest technologies for medical treatment in the world, compared to other medical institutions not only in Bulgaria, but also in Europe and in the world as well. In this respect, there are dozens of examples.
Ever since the Department of Ophthalmology was opened over 5 years ago, the only one in this country femtosecond laser for refractive surgery VisuMax of the leader in this branch Carl Zeiss started work. The laser is used to correct a wide range of refraction anomalies such as short-sightedness, long-sightedness and astigmatism which turns Lasik into painless and precise, completely laser procedure.
The surgeons of Trakia Hospital were the first in Eastern Europe who performed level 3 laparoscopic surgeries not only in general surgery, but in gynecology as well, applying the most modern system of Olympus 3D-visualization in the world.
Another example of the high technological level of Trakia Hospital - Stara Zagora is the latest angiography model, equipped with all possible functions, the only one in Continental Europe. The unique device was bought for the needs of the invasive cardiology sector in the hospital in Stara Zagora only two months after its official introduction in the catalogue of General Electric at the beginning of 2014. By means of this device hundreds of risky heart and vascular diseases have already been overcome.
The navigation system for endonasal sinus surgery which the surgeons in the Department of Otorhinolaryngology use, is also innovation that few medical institutions in the world have at their disposal. The ultra modern therapeutic laser with which the Department of Physiotherapy and Rehabilitation is equipped is also the only one in Bulgaria.
The Departments of Vascular Surgery, Othopedics and Traumatology, Neurology, Obstetrics and Neonatology, Pediatrics, Gastroenterology and Urology are also supplied with the most innovative diagnostic-therapeutic equipment.
The Department of Diagnostic Imaging is also equipped with the letest generation of scanners, harmless X-ray systems, echography devices, mammography units and many other units which guarantee test precision and reliability.
The five laboratories for clinical, microbiological, immunological, pathohistological and virological tests are supplied wth the most modern equipment by the world leader Siemens and other established manufacturers
The investment in newer and more modern medical equipment is a continuous process because we are convinced that this is investment in your health, in the smiles of the people closest to you, and in the satisfaction of our doctors who have the ambition to win recognition of Trakia Hospital as the highest technological hospital in Bulgaria!
