We are committed to providing a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience. To do so, we are actively working with consultants to update the website by increasing its accessibility and usability by persons who use assistive technologies
such as automated tools, keyboard-only navigation, and screen readers.
We are working to have the website conform to the relevant standards of the Section 508 Web Accessibility Standards developed by the United States Access Board, as
well as the World Wide Web Consortium's (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1. These standards and guidelines explain how to make web content more accessible for people with disabilities. We believe that conformance with these standards and
guidelines will help make the website more user friendly for all people.
Our efforts are ongoing. While we strive to have the website adhere to these guidelines and standards, it is not always possible to do so in all areas of the website.
If, at any time, you have specific questions or concerns about the accessibility of any particular webpage, please contact WebsiteAccess@tenethealth.com so that we may be of assistance.
Palmetto General Hospital is among the first hospitals in Miami-Dade to offer the 6 Pillar Approach for patients with subcortical brain abnormalities such as tumors and hemorrhages. This new surgical approach is designed to integrate several existing
technologies and advances, allowing physicians to see, access and remove abnormalities through an opening as small as a dime.
The 6 Pillars are:
the procedure, surgeons access the brain abnormality through a small opening and use brain imaging, GPS navigation technology and a tool called the NICO BrainPath to move through the natural folds and millions of delicate fibers in the brain to reach
the abnormality. The BrainPath uniquely allows surgeons to displace tissues of the brain during advancement to the targeted abnormality. Once in place, the BrainPath creates a passageway for surgeons to maintain access to the surgical field and then
use a resection tool to remove the abnormality.
