Oakwood Surgeons Perform World's First 3D Surgery Without Special Glasses
Date:4/20/2009

tion with other surgical devices inserted through relatively small incisions made on the patient. The major benefits of MIS are: superior cosmetic result; less post-operative pain; shorter recovery times; and the reduced risk of infection.

Jim Fischbach, developer of LifeVision technology and co-founder of Absolute Imaging commented, "The added realism provided by a glasses-free 3D image makes it easier for a surgeon to consider the option of doing surgery using MIS. Approximately two-thirds of all surgeries performed today still use a more traditional open approach. Now it appears the balance between traditional surgery and MIS is about to change."

Two other notable Oakwood Hospital surgeons involved in the trial also see a bright future for this technology in endoscopy. Larry Morawa, MD, Chair of Orthopaedics at Wayne State University and an Oakwood surgeon commented, "This display is excellent. My expectation would be that this technology will accelerate the development of small-diameter 3D endoscopes that can be used in orthopaedic surgery." General surgeon, Kassem Charara, MD, said of the display, "It is easy to use, easy to adapt to, and gives a good perception of depth." When asked if his confidence level was the same or a little better with 3D, Dr. Charara replied, "Definitely, the image is much better than the regular screen (referring to the 2D HD displays)."

Kelly Smith, Chief Operating Officer at Oakwood Heritage Hospital and one of the key orchestrators of this historic event is optimistic about the future of this technology. According to Smith, "More than ever, hospitals need to be sensitive to technologies that lower costs, shorten recovery times, and generally improve patient outcomes. If stereoscopic viewing of MIS results in fewer open surgeries, this technology has the potential to accomplish all three goals."
