Urology Soltive Laser – Quantity required: 2

Laser treatment has become increasingly popular in the past twenty years in treating urological conditions in patients, such as kidney, uretic stones and prostatic hyperplasia.

Laser procedures are to be considered less invasive than major surgeries and modern technology now allows the units to be smaller and more efficient for Cabrini staff to use.

The purchase of the Soltive Laser will assist us in our quest to be local leaders in urological surgery at Cabrini. Cost: $180,000

 

Samson Nouvag’s LipoSurg – 1 required

The Samon Nouvag Lipsurge offers Cabrini patients the most precise outcome in plastic and reconstructive surgery.

The machine produces rapid, small reciprocating vibrations to break up fat, so that it can be easily sucked out through the cannula.

Because of this power-assisted device, fat can be removed in a shorter period of time, leading to enhanced results and ensuring faster recovery time for our patients.

Cost: $50,000

 

 

 

 

Hologic Fluent Fluid Management System – 1 required

Cabrini Gynaecologists have requested the purchase of a new streamlined fluid management system.
