Owner of ‘Big Media’ donates $25k to name El Paso Children’s Hospital’s Business Development Offices

Daniel Granados, owner of El Paso’s Big Media donated $25,000 to El Paso Children’s Hospital Foundation to name the Business Development Offices of El Paso Children’s Hospital to increase its services lines, including pediatric neurosurgery.

Wednesday’s unveiling reveals “Daniel Granados and the Big Media elephant logo; additionally, Granados dedicated the event to his two young daughters, Ashley and Evelyn.

“A fascinating example of how funds such as these can be used is world -renowned pediatric neurosurgeon at El Paso Children’s Hospital, Dr. David J. Jimenez is piloting a piece of equipment available only at EPCH and called the Modus-V used in the International Space Station,” hospital officials share.

The Modus-V makes brain procedures easier for surgeons to see in the deep areas of the brain, difficult to reach. The equipment with a robotic arm uses satellite GPS. Uploaded MRI nerve tracks aid in illuminating the surgeon’s path to the mass.

As a result, the surgeon can watch the activity on a monitor rather than looking into a microscope. Special glasses help the surgeon see in three dimension inside and it can zoom into a level where they could not see before.

Dr. Jimenez describes the technology and it’s use as “turning on a light in a dark cave.”
