Memorial Medical Center opens new biplane surgical suite

Memorial Medical Center (MMC), part of Sutter Health, recently opened their new biplane neurological suite, allowing neurosurgeons to use advanced equipment and techniques to benefit local Sutter Health patients.

The biplane suite, which includes the use of two rotating cameras to create detailed 3D views of the blood vessels in and leading to the brain, is designed to help neurosurgeons better treat patients with stroke-causing blood clots. The physicians are able to quickly receive more detailed information, helping  lead to a faster recovery for the patient.

“The technology offers a minimally invasive method to locate the clots in the brain and to use imaging to help guide surgeons as they remove the clots,” said Sergio Camarillo, director of patient care services at MMC.

The Modesto Area Music Awards celebrates performers from around the greater Modesto Area. Over the last 18 Years, we have seen some Winners go on to National and International Fame; Flying Blind, Grandaddy, Moonshine Bandits, DEV, UVR, and Megan Slankard have all found success beyond the 209. 
 
 
This year the MAMAs celebrate 18 years and I am sure that Murphy and Ricci had no idea that they would still be hosting the Show all these years later. It is a testament to how much talent we have in the area.We can only hope that many of this year's class are recognized beyond just receiving the stainless steel Carhop trophy. The talent is there as well as the drive for many of the nominees. The Event is Free but is invite only.
