This Monday, Dr Spittaler launched the new O-Arm and Stealth equipment at John Hunter Hospital. This new piece of equipment can halve surgery times and help surgeons ensure the surgery runs smoothly and precisely. As the Director of Neurosurgery at John Hunter Hospital, Dr Spittaler was instrumental in acquiring this piece of equipment for the hospital, with the process taking several years. The machine is a win for the Hunter Region, with it being the first piece of its kind to exist in New South Wales, outside of Sydney.
