University of Chicago Medicine is the First in Illinois to Adopt TrueVision 3D Surgical System for Ophthalmic Surgery and Teaching

Chicago, IL (PRWEB) February 25, 2013

The University of Chicago Medicine, a premier leader in healthcare, academic medicine and research, has adopted the groundbreaking TrueVision® 3D Surgical Visualization System for ophthalmology. Seenu Hariprasad, M.D., Michael Saidel, M.D., and Susan Ksiazek, M.D., are the first ophthalmologists at the academic medical center to use the system. The University of Chicago is the first teaching program in Illinois to adopt TrueVision.

Dr. Hariprasad, who serves as Associate Professor and Chief of Vitreoretinal Service, described the TrueVision® 3D Surgical Visualization System as a breakthrough technology in eye surgery.

“The TrueVision® system provides an unparalleled three-dimensional view that greatly enhances the ability of the observer to visualize and thus understand the relationship between the instruments and anatomic structures of the eye during surgery,” Dr. Hariprasad said. “This results in a premium teaching process for advanced eye surgery, both in the operating room and in the conference room.”

"We are tremendously excited to be using the TrueVision® 3D Surgical System. I see a strong use for it in the operating room as well as a way to build our practices and residency training program as center for 3D surgery," said Dr. Saidel, who is the director of the Corneal Service and Clinical Assistant Professor at the University of Chicago Medicine specializing in the treatment of cataracts and corneal diseases. Dr. Ksiazek will also use the 3D high-def system for live surgical teaching and recorded video case instruction.

The TrueVision® 3D Surgical Visualization System is a real-time, stereoscopic, high-definition visualization system that attaches to microscopes to display the surgical field of view on 3D flat panel displays in the operating room. The advanced technology is used for microsurgery and to stream live video of the surgical field, making it an unparalleled teaching tool. Surgeons, residents, and the operating room staff can view what traditionally only one or two surgeons could observe through the microscope.
