Henry Ford Leads the Nation with these 2018 ‘Firsts'

Henry Ford often leads southeast Michigan, the state, the country, and the world in developing and performing groundbreaking procedures, and in harnessing the benefits of technological advances. In 2018, Henry Ford’s “firsts” included:


surgeons performing HIPEC

HIPEC for Abdominal Cancer

A team of more than 30 medical specialists, including surgeons, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, radiologists, geneticists, pathologists and anesthesiologists, completed the Henry Ford Cancer Institute’s first hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC) treatment. This option for rare, difficult-to-treat abdominal cancer delivers heated chemotherapy to the abdomen during surgery, killing cancer cells. This groundbreaking option offers new hope for patients, often extending survival by months or years. Learn More


Neurosurgeons using NASA robotics

Neurosurgeons Use NASA Robotics

Brain and spine surgeons at Henry Ford Hospital are the first in Michigan to use International Space Station technology in surgeries. Modus V™ is a surgical navigation system that works in concert with a robotic arm developed from technology used on the International Space Station to position astronauts, repair satellites, and move cargo. Surgeons gain unprecedented views of a patient’s anatomy, allowing them to perform less invasive procedures on the brain and spine with greater precision. Learn More


Henry Ford Macomb hybrid surgical suite

Hybrid OR comes to Macomb County

Macomb County’s first hybrid surgical suite opened at Henry Ford Macomb Hospital in October 2018. The highly specialized 1,050-square-foot space is outfitted with advanced imaging equipment that enables surgeons, cardiologists and neurologists to view and manipulate the precise location of a catheter inside a patient’s heart, brain or internal vessels.

Cardiogenic Shock Initiative Saves Lives

Preliminary results from a 2018 national study confirmed that survival rates are improving with the National Cardiogenic Shock Initiative protocol, developed by Henry Ford Cardiologist William O’Neill, M.D., and his team, who pioneered the protocol in southeast Michigan at Henry Ford’s Center for Structural Heart Disease. In the study, 77 percent of patients who were treated with the protocol survived, significantly higher than the 50 percent survival rate typical for patients with cardiogenic shock. The protocol is being adopted by hospitals across the United States. Learn More


Orthopedic Spine Surgeons

Reducing Risk with Real-Time Feedback

Henry Ford Allegiance Health was selected to be the first hospital in the nation to use Generation 2 of the Sentio neuromonitoring system. Developed by Henry Ford orthopedic spine surgeon Stephen Bartol, M.D., in collaboration with neurosurgeons, this technology provides neurosurgeons with feedback on the location of nerves in real time through the use of adhesive smart-sensors that are applied to the patient’s skin. By providing this timely information and enhancing surgical precision, the risks of damaging the patient’s nervous system are significantly reduced. Patients also experience a faster recovery, less blood loss and a shorter hospital stay. Learn More


Non-surgical Mitral Valve Repair

On May 31, 2018, Henry Ford became the first in Michigan to perform Cardioband, a non-surgical procedure to repair a leaky mitral heart valve. One of 17 U.S. clinical trial sites for the catheter-based procedure, and the only site in Michigan, Cardioband offers patients an alternative to open-chest surgery. Learn More


Enhancing Precision through Robotics and Navigation

Henry Ford Allegiance Health was the first hospital in Michigan to offer the ExcelciusGPSTM surgical system. The GPS 3-D guidance system is designed to improve accuracy and optimize patient care by combining robotics with navigation. This advanced technology allows neurosurgeons to precisely place screws and implants in the spine while seeing exactly where to place their instruments in real time. Learn More


First in U.S. to Offer New Angina Treatment

Cardiologists at Henry Ford Hospital performed the first Neovasc Reducer implantation in the United States to treat angina (chest pain). Surgeons placed a stainless steel, hourglass-shaped mesh inside the heart through a catheter. The device creates a backflow of pressure into the heart, which pushes blood into areas that need additional oxygenation. Prior to the procedure, the patient reported only being able to walk two blocks before having chest pain. Following the procedure, he could walk several miles without any symptoms, and rarely experienced any chest discomfort. Learn More


LGBTQ Equality Leader

For the first time, four Henry Ford Health System hospitals – Henry Ford, Henry Ford Macomb, Henry Ford West Bloomfield and Henry Ford Wyandotte – scored 100 percent on the Healthcare Equality Index survey, earning the LGBTQ Healthcare Equality Leader designation. Learn More
