Apple Vision Pro used in its 1st Brazilian orthopedic surgery


Bruno Gobbato, MD, an orthopedic surgeon at Jaraguá Hospital in Brazil, has become the first surgeon in the country to use the Apple Vision Pro during a shoulder arthroscopy, according to an April 19 report from 9to5Mac.

Dr. Gobbato used the Apple headset to assist him during the procedure to treat a patient with a rotator cuff tear. 

Apple's headset is used as a logistics and organizational tool for managing surgical procedures. 

The device has been gaining traction in the orthopedic space worldwide over the last several months, recently completing its first spinal operation in the United Kingdom and its first spine and shoulder surgeries in the U.S.
