Dickinson Welcomes New Orthopaedic Robot

CHI St. Alexius Health Dickinson is the first hospital in western North Dakota to offer Stryker’s Mako SmartRobotics™ System for orthopaedic surgeries. This advancement in joint replacement surgery transforms the way total knee, partial knee and total hip replacements are performed by combining three key components into one platform that can improve patient outcomes for these procedures. “For some patients, this can mean less soft tissue damage; for others, greater bone preservation,” explains Dr. Derrick Cote, orthopedic surgeon with The Bone & Joint Center at CHI St. Alexius Health Dickinson.

Proud Member of the ND Colorectal Cancer Roundtable

CHI St. Alexius Health is a proud member of the North Dakota Colorectal Cancer Roundtable, a 2020 80% in Every Community National Achievement Award Honoree. North Dakota designated this week as Colorectal Cancer Awareness Week, as we celebrate the North Dakota Colorectal Cancer Roundtable national award and bring CRC screening back into focus in this new pandemic environment.

Colorectal cancer is the second-leading cause of cancer deaths in the U.S. when men and women are combined, yet it can often be prevented or detected at an early stage. But there is good news: the number of deaths from colorectal cancer has been dropping in both men and women for several decades. One reason, researchers say, is the use of screening colonoscopies to remove colorectal polyps before they develop into cancers, or find cancers earlier when the disease is easier to treat. Another factor is that treatment for colorectal cancer has improved.
