NEW SURGICAL LASERS FOR POLICLINICO AGOSTINO GEMELLI AND BAMBIN GESU’ HOSPITALS
• GENEROUS DONATION BY QUANTA SYSTEM FOR TWO IMPORTANT HOSPITALS IN ROME: A PRECISE THULIUM LASER FOR POLICLINICO AGOSTINO GEMELLI IN MEMORY OF JOHN PAUL II, AND A VERY MODERN HOLMIUM LASER, SPECIFIC TO THE CARE OF KIDNEY STONES FOR “POPE FRANCIS’ KIDS.”
Solbiate Olona (Varese), Italy March 3rd, 2015.
To assist in the modernization of two Roman hospitals, Quanta System SpA, a company of El.En., the multinational group and world leader in the production of lasers for medicine and surgery, today announced the donation and related installation of two new generation lasers. Polyclinic Gemelli has received a Thulium Laser—the Cyber TM 200—with very high cutting precision, hemostasis and confined coagulation. The Cyber TM 200 is useful in performing complex surgeries, especially in thoracic and urological specialties, and able to guarantee the highest standards in terms of safety and minimal hospitalization time for patients. Additionally, a Holmium laser—the Litho—is being donated in honor of Pope Francis to the Bambin Gesù Hospital. The Litho is used for scialolithiasis operations and for stones in lithotripsy. It, specifically, represents an alternative technique beneficial to children and young persons, on whom it is not suggested to operate through extracorporeal shockwaves, a technique that is common in treating adults.
With these donations, Quanta’s management pays tribute to two of the most important figures of modern history: Pope John Paul II and Pope Francis. Pope John Paul II was shot down by Ali Ağca in Saint Peter’s Square in 1981, and was saved by the tenacity and skills of Gemelli’s surgeons in an intervention lasting five hours. In the case of Pope Francis, his humanitarian messages and daily commitment strive to better the quality of life of all people—including their health and physical well-being.
The idea for these donations came from Paolo Salvadeo, CEO of Quanta System, who explains the reasons for the gestures: “We couldn’t remain insensitive when faced with the necessities of two of the most important hospitals of our nation. At this time, lasers represent the most advanced tools for surgical procedures. Through these donations, to the Vatican in the case of Bambin Gesù Hospital, and to Italy, for Polyclinic Gemelli, we have supplied a physical tribute to the message of beauty, humanity and social commitment as both John Paul II and Pope Francis have given, and continue to give to all of us. Our mission is to use our lasers to preserve priceless heritage for mankind. Some Quanta lasers are used for the restoration of fine art, and other technologies are for medicine and surgery. Both are born of the same principle, which is also the motto of our company and of our group: We take care of people, our masterpieces.”
