State of the Art – Right Here.

Door County Medical Center is one of the top 20 critical access hospitals in Wisconsin. More than a hospital, Door County Medical Center is an integrated health system providing the residents of Door and Kewaunee counties with state of the art technology and procedures, and top physicians.
 

Here are 4 big ways, Door County Medical Center brings state of the art technology to Door County.

 

#4 – Advanced Detection Methods

With 3-D Mammography, MRI and CT scanning, we get the clearest possible internal images. This helps us detect irregularities early on, drastically improving your chances of recovery.
 
  • 3-D Mammography imaging is a type of digital mammography that, instead of taking a flat 2D image of breast tissue, creates a 3D image from a composite formed of image layers. 3D mammography has been shown to detect 41% more invasive breast cancers, on average. As a result, there are fewer cancers missed and less invasive treatments. Learn more
  • Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is the latest in cutting-edge technology, helping doctors diagnose and care for patients with needs including oncology, injuries and vascular issues. Door County Medical Center MRI has the largest opening possible allowing us to scan a larger range of people.
  • CT Scanning technology uses 640 visual slices to provide the clearest possible images for doctors to diagnose patients by generating images that can be turned into three-dimensional pictures. Door County Medical Center was the third hospital in the United States to adopt the CT scan technology that reduces streaks from implanted metal such as rods and pacemakers. This enables doctors to diagnose patients with a variety of symptoms such as headache, chest pain and abdominal pain.
 

 

 

#3 The ER Telestroke Robot

During a stroke, an estimated two million brain cells die per minute. The faster a stroke patient is evaluated and treated, the better his or her outcome and recovery will be. Door County Medical Center’s Emergency Department can treat stroke faster and more effectively thanks to Telestroke, a state-of-the-art technology that connects Door County Medical Center stroke patients with highly skilled neurologists with the click of a button for immediate expertise and care. 


#2 – The Heartburn & Reflux Center of Door County

Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD), is a common disease impacting 40% of Americans that can lead to serious health consequences if it is not detected early.
Patients suffering from heartburn or acid reflux can now benefit from state of the art diagnosis using Bravo technology and advanced treatment of heartburn with incisionless same-day surgery, or TIF; and LINX, a small implant that can support acid suppression therapy – all right here in Door County!
 
  • The Bravo™ reflux testing system is an advanced technology that can help identify the cause of your symptoms. Bravo monitors acid content in your esophagus while you continue your regular daily activities and diet. The testing process is comfortable, and the results can help your doctor better understand your symptoms and make confident decisions about your treatment plan.
  • The Transoral Incisionless Fundoplication (TIF) is a minimally invasive treatment for GERD that is performed in the outpatient setting. The TIF procedure is performed from inside your stomach without incisions. This procedure is similar to conventional procedures, but is less invasive, has fewer adverse effects, and does not limit future treatment options.
  • The LINX® Reflux Management System is a "bracelet" made of magnetic titanium beads implanted at the base of the esophagus to reinforce the weakened muscle that allows acid to splash back up. The device is implanted using a standard minimally invasive laparoscopic procedure. LINX is indicated for those patients diagnosed with GERD as defined by abnormal pH testing, and who are seeking an alternative to continuous acid suppression therapy.

#1 – Robotic Surgery is HERE.

The da Vinci Surgical System is an advanced, robotic computer that uses 3-D technologies to assist your surgeon with an operation. The robot’s mechanical wrists bend and rotate inside your body more effectively than a human wrist, resulting in a less invasive surgery.
 
The system can be used across a spectrum of general surgical procedures.
 
The surgeon is 100% in control of the robotic-assisted arms, which translates his/her hand movements into smaller, more precise movements of tiny instruments inside your body. The 3D-HD vision system provides surgeons a highly magnified view, virtually extending their eyes and hands into the patient.
