Orthopedic Augmented Reality Surgical Navigation

Augmented reality (AR) holds immense potential for transforming orthopedic surgery by providing surgeons with enhanced visualization, precision, and guidance during procedures. By overlaying digital information onto the surgeon's field of view, VisAR can offer real-time, personalized assistance throughout the surgical process.

VisAR is currently FDA-cleared for stereotactic spinal surgery.

This technology can facilitate preoperative planning by displaying images from preoperative or intraoperative imaging studies and helping surgeons simulate the surgical procedure before making any incisions. VisAR can also guide surgeons during bone cutting or placement of implants by superimposing virtual markers, measurements, and trajectories onto the patient's anatomy, enabling more accurate and precise surgical interventions.
