Wednesday, October 28, 2020

 

Scopis, a company specializing in surgical navigation and medical augmented and mixed reality, has announced that McGill University Health Center (MUHC) will be the first reference center and hospital in North America to use Scopis’s TGS (target-guided surgery) and augmented reality (AR) technologies in ear, nose and throat (ENT) surgeries.

Bartosz Kosmecki, CEO and Founder of Scopis added, “Scopis is honored to have established such a strong partnership with the ENT department at McGill University Health Center.

McGill University Health Center is one of the world’s leading academic health centers, with a renowned reputation in ENT surgery. Dr. Marc Tewfik, Assistant Professor and Director of Rhinology at the MUHC, has performed multiple surgeries using this highly technically advanced and fully OR-integrated navigation system, with positive patient outcomes.

“The ability to identify critical anatomical structures and plan safe pathways optimizes the surgical planning process,” said Dr. Tewfik. “Scopis’ TGS technology combined with augmented reality enable us to follow safe pathways during surgery and to perform procedures according to plan. This can both reduce operating time and enhance clinical outcomes.” A video highlighting the system’s advantages can be found here

Professor and Chairman Dr. Nader Sadeghi reports, “Surgical planning and the surgery itself can also be recorded by the system. This turns any operation into educational content that we can use to teach the next generation of surgeons. This cutting-edge technology underlines our focus on education and using innovative solutions to solve complex medical challenges.”

Bartosz Kosmecki, CEO and Founder of Scopis added, “Scopis is honored to have established such a strong partnership with the ENT department at McGill University Health Center.
