Haag-Streit UK has just completed the installation of a Moller-Wedel Hi-R900A microscope into South Bristol Community Hospital (SBCH). The £45 million community hospital serves a population of 155,000 and opened in phases. The Ophthalmic Department is now fully open for surgery and the Moller-Wedel Hi-R900A was the microscope of choice to be installed in the building.

Having been upgraded and ceiling mounted, the equipment can now be used by surgeons for performing both cataract and glaucoma surgery.

The Hi-R900A microscope is recognised as being first-class for ophthalmic surgery and is primarily used in university hospitals and surgical centres. Equipped with a zero degree assistant scope, it is the perfect microscope for education and training, which made it the ideal choice for this hospital. The assistant scope even includes its own magnification changer and focusing device, which offers the same 0° viewing, stereoscopic vision and red reflex as the surgeon.

Steve Derham, Product Manager for Moller Wedel, said, “We are delighted with how smoothly the installation went at South Bristol Community Hospital. The microscope is a state-of-the-art piece of equipment which is ideal for centres specialising in cataract and glaucoma procedures.”

Richard Markham, Consultant Eye Surgeon at University Hospitals Bristol NHS Foundation Trust, and provider of ophthalmic services at SBCH, said, “This microscope is ideal for microsurgical eye procedures of every type including vitrectomy. It has excellent optics, is very easy for a scrubbed surgeon to position without assistance, and has wireless controls which increases safety in the operating theatre because of the lack of trailing wires.”

This installation was the latest in a series of Moller-Wedel microscopes that have been installed in the Bristol area.
