Virtual Reality Giving MetroHealth Neurosurgeons a Chance to ‘Pre-Do’ Brain Surgery
Brain tech in Cleveland
CLEVELAND, Ohio — If you walk into the office of MetroHealth neurosurgeon Dr. Deven Reddy at the right moment, you might think he’s playing a virtual reality video game.
In actuality, he’s preparing for a complex brain surgery.
Virtual reality technology developed by the Chicago company ImmersiveTouch is making it possible for MetroHealth neurosurgeons to view and work on a virtual model of a patient’s brain prior to the actual procedure. That makes the surgeon more prepared and helps keep patients safe, MetroHealth experts said.
