Precision VRŽ is proven to increase patient satisfaction and significantly improve patient retention while reducing patient outmigration

ORLANDO, Fla., Feb. 14, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Surgical Theater brings Virtual and Augmented Reality solutions for

Skull Base Surgery to the Annual NASBS Meeting in Orlando, FL from February 15-16, 2019 at booth #406. NASBS provides neurosurgeons an opportunity to experience EndoSNAP – Endoscopic Surgical Navigation Advanced Platform, which features Precision VRŽ models synchronized with endoscopic video and computer assisted navigation to create an intraoperative Augmented Reality solution. Precision VRŽ seamlessly integrates throughout the patient treatment continuum, from the consultation, to surgical planning, and into the operating room.

Precision VRŽ allows neurosurgeons, patients and their family to "walk" through the patients' own anatomical structure. For example, the surgeon, patient and family can stand with an artery to their right, bony skull base structures at their feet, and with a look over their shoulder, they can observe the tumor. This immersive experience enables them to understand their pathology and their surgical plan.

Fellows and Residents will also have an opportunity at NASBS to participate in a virtual blackboard for practicing skull base approaches and advanced surgical techniques on patient specific virtual models. Walter Jean, MD, Professor of Neurosurgery at George Washington University Hospital will be hosting two sessions – February 15th at 3:45pm and February 16th at 3:45pm. Attendees interested in how VR can be applied to skull base surgeries are encouraged to take advantage of these sessions.

"Surgical Theater is advancing medicine with virtual and augmented reality technology," said Moty Avisar, CEO and Co-founder of Surgical Theater. "We are humbled by the opportunity to work with several expert skull base surgeons throughout the world including Dr. Walter Jean of George Washington University Medical Center, a true visionary in the discipline."

Precision VRŽ combines leading-edge fighter jet flight simulation technology with advanced medical imaging such as MRI, CT, DTI and BOLD to create a 360-degree virtual reality reconstruction of the individual patient's anatomy and pathology. Surgical Theater's 360-degree virtual reconstruction offers surgeons an additional perspective on treatment options and surgical plans, helping to facilitate a unique and unparalleled opportunity for patient and family engagement and surgical training.

Multiple leading institutions, including several pediatric hospitals have adopted Precision VRŽ into their regular workflow including: NYU, George Washington University Hospital, UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital, Stanford Medical Center, Houston Methodist, Mt. Sinai, University Hospital Case Western, Hackensack JFK Medical Center, Northshore University Health System, Norton Children's Hospital, and St. Joseph's Children's Hospital in Tampa. Stop by booth #406 at NASBS to learn more about Surgical Theater's Virtual and Augmented Reality solutions from the exam room to the operating room.

About Surgical Theater Surgical Theater, the market leader in virtual and augmented reality healthcare services, is the first to combine cutting-edge fighter jet flight simulation technology with a patient's own anatomy scans. Rendered from comprehensive combined modalities of CT, MRI as well as advanced post processing images such as DTI and BOLD, the 360° virtual reality fly-through is designed to allow surgeons to walk and fly-through a reconstruction of the patient's own anatomy and pathology. Surgeons literally walk in the space between the white matter tracks and the tumor, being fully immersed, gaining unprecedented situational awareness and clarity of assessment. By simply turning their head, the surgeon can further explore the anatomy and plan the craniotomy, surgical path, trajectory, corridor, and the entire surgical strategy. This "walk-in" inside the pathology is proven to increase patient satisfaction improve patient engagement increase financial performance.
