Technology at Alaska Medical Specialties
Ahead of the Curve at Our Anchorage Clinic
As new technologies become more readily available, Alaska Medical Specialties
seeks to utilize these to improve our services. Such burgeoning technologies
can vastly enhance the efficiency of treatments, especially for medical
conditions that can benefit from the less intrusive or non-surgical procedures.
In our facility, we have equipment at the ready to address issues facing
men's and women's urology, as well as cancer diagnosis, prevention,
Some of the most common conditions we have treated include:
- Kidney stones
- Bladder conditions
- Prostate cancer
- Breast cancer
Technology can not only make treatments faster and more efficient, they
can also improve how the organization runs overall. Medical records are
all electronic, and quick to access with the click of a mouse. That means
your primary care physician can easily share information with any specialists
from who you are seeking additional care. This also allows our entire
staff to be on the same page with regards to your ongoing care and prognosis,
ensuring that we never miss a single beat.
Offering Innovative Treatment Options
Digital imaging tools and robotic surgery allow physicians access to the
complex, internal workings of the human body in a less intrusive manner.
We rely on these technologies to help us search for abnormalities and
properly diagnose illnesses in a more effective way.
These are just some of the advanced technologies that we use:
- CT scans
- da Vinci robotic procedures
- Shock wave therapy
- Neuromodulation (Interstim® therapy)
- Truebeam™ radiation therapy
The integrated cancer center at Alaska Medical Specialties was the first
of its kind to be opened in Anchorage, serving patients throughout the
entire state. We were also the first to make TrueBeam™ technology
