Leading California Ophthalmic Surgeon to Feature TrueVision® 3D Surgical System at New Surgery Center

San Diego, CA (PRWEB) November 22, 2013

TrueVision® 3D Surgical announced that Glenn Cook, M.D., Ph.D., has incorporated the advanced TrueVision® 3D Visualization and Guidance platform for high-definition, image-guided, stereoscopic microsurgery. The new technology enables a wide variety of patient-specific and surgeon-specific advantages, including real-time computer guidance for premium cataract surgery using the TrueGuide™ software application.

Dr. Cook is among the first in the nation to employ multiple technologies including TrueVision®, femtosecond lasers and wavefront aberrometry in the pursuit of optimal vision quality for patients undergoing cataract and corneal surgeries. The new surgery center, located in Del Mar, is being developed as a center of excellence for these procedures and to advance the patient experience before, during and after ophthalmic surgery.

“We are excited to be the first in the San Diego region to bring TrueVision® to our patients. This will allow us to utilize customized, image guidance to enhance the precision of key steps during cataract removal and intraocular lens positioning. The 3D high-definition view allows my operating room staff to see what I see for improved communication during surgery,” says Dr. Cook. “We can also better educate optometrists in the area about surgical techniques that can enhance the patient education process before scheduling surgery.”

Certified by the American Board of Ophthalmology in 1992, Dr. Cook is one of the most accomplished surgeons in his field. He has served as medical director of one of San Diego’s top eye surgery practices since 1991, was chief resident at the Shiley Eye Center at UC San Diego and chief refractive surgeon for Laser Vision Consultants of San Diego. He was also the team ophthalmologist for the San Diego Chargers (1991-2000) and the San Diego Gulls hockey club (1991-2005).
