Children’s National Health System First Pediatric Hospital on East Coast to Adopt Surgical Theater’s Virtual Reality Visualization Platform
Date:12/5/2018

Children’s National Health System is advancing patient and family engagement with the use of the Precision Virtual Reality® medical visualization platform by Surgical Theater. This innovative, enterprise-wide virtual reality technology provides Children’s National’s world-renowned neurosurgeons and physicians with a never-before view of the anatomy and pathology of their patients’ complex neurologic conditions. Utilization of Virtual Reality offers an intuitive and immersive approach to patient engagement, allowing surgeons to walk with the patient inside a 360° model based on their own CT and MRI, demonstrating customized digital treatment plans for patients. Children’s National Health System will also be utilizing these 360° VR models for intraoperative visualization and navigation during complex surgical procedures.

“Technology such as Surgical Theater’s represents a quantum leap for neurosurgeons, both in and out of the operating room,” said Robert Keating, Chief of Neurosurgery at Children’s National Health System. “It allows us to marry state-of-the-art 3D simulation to the real world; for the patient and family as well as doctors in training, and ultimately offers a new tool for the neurosurgical armamentarium in approaching complex lesions in the brain, such as AVM’s, tumors, epilepsy and functional cases.”

Surgical Theater, the market leader in virtual and augmented reality based healthcare services, is the first to combine cutting-edge fighter jet flight simulation technology with a patient’s own anatomy scans, using medical imaging such as MRI, CT and DTI, to create a 360-degree virtual reality reconstruction of the patient’s own anatomy and pathology. Precision VR revolutionizes patient engagement opportunities in the clinic while providing cutting-edge surgical planning and navigation capabilities in the operating room, as well as powerful tools for medical education and collaboration for Children’s National’s neurosurgical and medical communities.

Precision VR® empowers Children’s National’s surgeons and patients with technology that enables them to swipe their fingers across a touch screen or slip on a VR headset, then walk into the 360-degree patient-specific virtual reality reconstruction of a patient’s anatomy during a surgical consult. This personalized VR view leads to an enhanced patient experience. Pre-operative patient engagement with precision VR® has been proven to increase an institutions financial performance, increase patient satisfaction and improve patient engagement.

When wearing the VR headset, a VR-empowered physician and patient can tour a patient’s pathology. Together, they walk into the space between vascular structures and stand between arteries and the tumor or an aneurysm. By simply turning their head from side to side and/or up and down, the patient can further explore their anatomy as the surgeon explains and demonstrates the planned surgical path the medical team will use during the procedure. This 360-degree visual representation gives the patient and their families an informative and deep understanding of their condition by visually answering questions about surgical approaches and other medical concerns.

“We are proud to help patients and surgeons connect – and are humbled to see how this engagement lead to philanthropy by the Bresler family,” said Moty Avisar, CEO and Co- Founder of Surgical Theater. “Nothing warms our heart more than to connect grateful families with talented surgeons, at the most amazing institutions. That is the perfect trifecta.”
