Methodist Hospital for Surgery, the newest hospital in the Dallas, Texas, area, offers patients a multifaceted imaging department featuring the latest state-of-the-art technology as well as a superior clinical staff. The hospital prides itself on providing unparalleled service to patients and physicians.

“If a patient needs to undergo an imaging procedure at 9 p.m., we’ll make it happen,” says Bobby Himel, BS, RT(R) (MR) (CT), imaging manager at Methodist Hospital for Surgery. “We strive to offer exceptional clinical and customer service.”

Intraoperative Surgical Tool

The hospital specializes in orthopedic care, ranging from hip and knee replacements to treatment of spinal injuries. The multi-dimensional imaging capabilities offered at the hospital are rare in facilities across the United States and complement the hospital’s orthopedic capabilities.

“Our pride and joy at the hospital is the first Medtronic O-Arm® System in North Texas,” Himel says. “It’s a navigation device that allows us to place stabilizing devices into a patient’s spine while still operating. We can perform a computed tomography [CT] scan during an operation to ensure that the cages or screws that have been secured in the patient are in the correct places.”

The hospital utilizes other tools geared toward spinal calculations and hip and knee projections.

Community Response

At Methodist Hospital for Surgery, the staff and the leadership team have substantial expertise in all of the imaging modalities.

“We not only provide the latest imaging technology, but our nurses, technologists, and hospital staff have the highest levels of clinical expertise in their fields,” Himel says. “Our hospital offers a full range of services by experts who have received additional certifications to provide knowledge that empowers patients.”

Located off the Dallas North Tollway in Addison, Texas, the hospital is easily accessible for patients, offers valet parking, and accommodates patients by providing multiple handicap ramps.

“The hospital is beautiful,” Himel says. “The hardwood floors, marble sinks, and high-definition televisions help make the hospital experience more comfortable and homey.”
