Navigated Microscope Integration and Heads Up Display in the Neurosurgical Workflow

Speaker: Joshua Bederson, MD

Sponsor: Brainlab/ZEISS

Description: Joshua B. Bederson, MD, is the Leonard I. Malis, MD / Corinne and Joseph Graber Professor of Neurosurgery and System Chair for the Department of Neurosurgery at Mount Sinai Health System in New York, Manhattan’s busiest neurosurgery department. In this talk Dr Bederson will present his experience with more than 450 cases using microscope integration and Heads-up-display using the Brainlab® Curve® and Kinevo® 900 from Zeiss. Augmented reality in the form of heads-up-display has remarkably evolved over the last few years, Dr. Bederson will outline his experience of integrating these tools into the intraoperative workflow and the value of segmented structures and their utility during preoperative planning and surgical resection. The presentation will focus on how advanced digital technologies such as these can be fully incorporated into the daily workflow of a busy neurosurgery practice.
