The Marcus Neuroscience Institute at Boca Regional First Hospital in Boca Raton, Fla., is using the Orbeye 4K-3D Video Microscope device for skull-based and spine procedures, reports Delray Newspaper.

Three insights:

1. Orbeye aims to provide advanced visualization, reduce surgical time and improve patient outcomes through minimally invasive techniques.

2. It assists surgeons in recognizing tumor details, surrounding tissue, blood vessels and other features with a 55-inch 4K-3D monitor.

3. Surgeons can instantly switch between high and low magnification to determine the connection of vessels and a precise visualization of the anatomy.

"It's like conducting surgery in an IMAX theatre environment," said Frank Vrionis, MD, PhD, director of MNI. "This level of precision provides greater surgical accuracy to help improve outcomes. It may also shorten surgical and anesthesia time, which helps our patients recover quicker postoperatively.
