First 3D Complex Cataract Surgery Performed in Canada at Trillium Health Partners
Date:7/24/2013

Mississauga, ON (PRWEB) July 24, 2013

Ike K. Ahmed, M.D., one of North America’s most respected and innovative ophthalmological surgeons, performed the first complex cataract surgery in Canada using the TrueVision® 3D Surgical System. The surgery, performed at Trillium Health Partners – Credit Valley Hospital in Mississauga, Ontario (http://www.trilliumhealthpartners.ca), used the advanced TrueVision® 3D Visualization and Guidance platform for high-definition, real-time, stereoscopic microsurgery.

“We’re very proud to be the first center and the first hospital in Canada to use the 3D TrueVision® System,” said Dr. Ahmed, Chief, Division of Ophthalmology, Trillium Health Partners. “Trillium Health Partners is committed to implementing innovative practices in order to improve overall patient care.”

Dr. Ahmed said using the TrueVision® 3D Surgical System provided distinct advantages in visualization and ergonomics in micro invasive glaucoma surgeries, or MIGS.

“Critical to the procedure is the ability to visualize the angle, in a comfortable, ergonomic way,” Dr. Ahmed said. “As well as being able to place those devices appropriately in those small spaces we typically have to tilt the head of the patient and flip the microscope.”

Using the TrueVision® 3D Surgical System, allowed Dr. Ahmed to perform the day’s surgeries comfortably. “Toward the end of the day I was quite relaxed, sitting back in my chair and operating, rather than the typical sitting forward, muscles tight and neck cranked around on the scope,” he said.

Dr. Ahmed, a leading expert in advanced technology and new techniques, who is board certified in ophthalmology in Canada and the U.S., said the TrueVision® 3D Surgical System deserves a place in the operating room.

“It’s really a surgical assist tool, acting as
