As West Valley communities grow, so has the demand to provide residents with superior bone, joint and muscle care close to home. Your charitable gifts funded a $2 million initiative to support spine health and orthopedic care at Banner Del E. Webb Medical Center. Your investment helped transform the Center for Orthopedics into a new, state-of-the-art Banner Center for Orthopedics that can treat nearly 5,000 patients annually. New equipment, advanced technologies and service enhancements support skilled surgeons and providers in keeping you and your neighbors active for years to come.
Your Impact To Date
Thank you! Your donations have helped to achieve 70% of the Generosity for Generations Campaign’s $48 million goal. Of that, $2 million funded specialized equipment and service enhancements including:
- O-arm 3D imaging technology for precise placement of instruments and hardware to improve spinal surgery outcomes and safety
- Minimally invasive tubular retractor technology allows spine surgeons to create smaller incisions, which decrease blood loss and incidence of infection, and accelerate healing
- Specialized microscopes provide significantly better visualization for removal of scar tissue and bone shards from nerves with a lower chance of complications
- New Patient Navigator position to assist patients through each step of their orthopedic/spine care journey
Investments in new equipment and technology also help recruit and retain talented medical professionals to our community
