  • Firefly Imaging Technology Illuminates Anatomical Structures During Surgical Procedures

    Las Palmas Medical Center recently became the first hospital in El Paso to begin using the da Vinci® Si Surgical System’s Firefly fluorescence imaging technology.

    This technology uses an injectable near-infrared fluorescence dye—indocyanine green—to more clearly identify key anatomical structures. Firefly fluorescence imaging’s 3-D, high-definition visualization mode allows surgeons to see, in real time, key anatomical structures colorized by the indocyanine green.

    This enables them to objectively assess vascularity and soft tissue profusion during minimally invasive surgical procedures, including, but not limited to: partial nephrectomies, cholecystectomies, colorectal perfusions and thoracic surgeries.

    El Paso Inc. recently covered the hospital’s latest technological advancement.

    In honor of Donate Life Month, Las Palmas Del Sol Healthcare is educating the public about organ donation. Currently more than 120,000 men, women and children are awaiting life-saving organ transplants; however, only 35 percent of El Paso County residents are registered donors.

    Since 2009, the Kidney Transplant Center at Las Palmas Medical Center has successfully performed hundreds of transplants in El Paso. For those considering becoming an organ donor, the Kidney Transplant Center at Las Palmas Medical Center is sharing the following facts about organ donation:
    • Anyone can be a potential donor regardless of age, race or medical history.
    • Individuals considered for living donation are usually between 16 and 60 years of age.
    • Kidneys are the most common organs donated by living donors.
    • There is no cost to the donor or their family for organ or tissue donation.
    • When you are on the waiting list for an organ, what really counts is the severity of your illness, time spent waiting, blood type and other important medical information, not your financial or celebrity status.

    If you are considering becoming an organ donor, you are encouraged to register and to discuss your wishes with your family.

    As of April 2014, 121,000 patients are on the national waiting list for an organ donation—more than 11,000 are from Texas. Click here to learn about the Donate Life Texas Registry.

  • Experience Back or Leg Pain Relief!

    Del Sol Medical Center is now performing a new surgical technique to provide relief to those suffering from back and/or leg pain. The minimally disruptive procedure, called eXtreme Lateral Interbody Fusion (XLIF®), differs from traditional spinal surgery by employing a lateral approach (entering from the side of the body), which eliminates the disruption of muscles, bones, and ligaments that result from the traditional posterior (back) approach and dramatically reduces hospital and recovery times.

The EsophyX® TIF® procedure reduces hiatal hernia and creates a valve between the stomach and esophagus restoring the natural, physiological anatomy to prevent gastroesophageal reflux.

  • Get Inspired: Follow Me on My Journey to a Healthier Lifestyle

    I started my initial weight loss journey on July 5, 2005. I considered this to be my new birth date since this was my new beginning on life. People ask me all the time why I had Gastric Bypass weight loss surgery and I always say the same thing; because I was tired all the time, wasn’t able to do participate in normal everyday activities and didn’t feel comfortable in my own skin. I was always wearing baggy clothes and it got to the point where even tying my shoes was difficult. The first year after my surgery, I lost 110 pounds and maintained my weight loss for several years. Six years later, while trying to deal with a few of life’s infamous curveballs and some unforeseen tragedies I turned to food for comfort. I wasn’t compliant with my weight loss program and as a result, the weight started to come back. As a Bariatric Nurse at the Del Sol Bariatric Center I was privy to the newest weight loss procedures available and that’s where I learned of the revolutionary new StomaphyX™ procedure. The StomaphyX™ procedure is for former Gastric Bypass patients struggling to lose that last 20-30 pounds. This was it; this was my second chance to get back on track with my weight loss goal. Since my StomaphyX™ surgery, in November, 2011, I have lost 37 pounds. My post surgery weight loss goal was 35 pounds and already I have reached my goal . . . and I’m still reaching.
