Surgical Theater, LLC sells first Surgical Rehearsal Platform to UH Case Medical Center
Date:11/28/2012

Surgical Theater, LLC, creator of the Selman Surgical Rehearsal Platform (SRP), has made the first sale of its groundbreaking technology to University Hospitals (UH) Case Medical Center in Cleveland, one of the most respected research/teaching hospitals in America. Physicians at the medical center have been instrumental in the development of Surgical Theater, so it is fitting that the institution becomes the first to own the unique, 3D imaging rehearsal platform.

Using standard scanned images from any patient, the SRP generates 3D patient specific and accurate models of interactions between life-like tissue and surgical instruments. The tissue responds "realistically" to actions taken by the surgeon, thus allowing accurate pre-surgery planning and rehearsal. The unique software utilizes flight simulator technology to permit remote connection of multiple SRPs; participants anywhere in the world can simultaneously work together and practice the same case with real-time feedback and collaborate on the planning of a specific surgery case.

Dr. Warren Selman, Chairman, Department of Neurological Surgery at UH Case Medical Center and Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine in Cleveland, is a co-originator of the Platform's development. Not long ago, a random conversation at a coffee shop between Dr. Selman and the now-CEO of Surgical Theater was the beginning of the SRP's development.

"We're thrilled to have our first sale be to the institution that has been our partner in developing the SRP. The innovative spirit and trailblazing research in this academic medical center have inspired us from the inception of Surgical Theater," said Moty Avisar, President and CEO, Surgical Theater.

The Neurological Surgery Department at UH Case Medical Center has been using the SRP for over two years, and provided clinical insight to the company during its development. Now, with the purchase of the Platform, it will be used for clinical s
