At Abbeville General we are dedicated to providing our patients with outstanding care. Our surgeons perform the latest surgical techniques and are skilled in the use of new and innovative technologies, including those used in minimally invasive procedures. This is precisely why we are proud to announce that Abbeville General recently invested in Stryker’s 1688 Advanced Imaging Modalities (AIM) 4K Platform.

The 1688 AIM 4K Platform is a minimally invasive surgical tower that will now provide our surgeons with superior visualization and advanced imaging modalities across an array of specialties. *The new all-in-one system features: 4K Image Resolution: Brilliant 4K resolution offers our surgeons crystal-clear images for improved visualization during surgery.


L-11 Light Source and Auto-light Technology: The proprietary auto-light technology automatically adjusts based on anatomy to provide consistent lighting, enabling our surgeons to focus on the procedure at hand and nothing else. 

Advanced Imaging Modalities: Three distinct SPY fluorescence imaging modalities; Contrast, Overlay and ENV are integrated into the platform and enable real-time 4K fluorescence images of perfusion and critical anatomy. Studies have shown that the use of fluorescence imaging may assist surgeons in making better clinical decisions during colorectal, laparoscopic cholecystectomy and other minimally invasive procedures.1,2

To further enhance operating room work flow, Stryker’s Connected OR Hub is fully integrated into the tower and enables seamless connectivity between devices. The Connected OR Hub allows our staff to easily stream, capture, record, and print surgical images and videos directly from the platform for later review. Clinical teams can also use it to provide text message updates to a patient’s loved ones during their procedure without ever leaving the OR. 

Abbeville General continues to provide Access to Quality SAFE SURGERIES Close to Home!
