Dr. Scott Luhmann performs 1st pediatric deformity case with VisAR


Scott Luhmann, MD, of Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, completed the first pediatric deformity case with the VisAR augmented reality system.

Dr. Luhmann used the system to place 10 pedicle screws during surgery, according to a Dec. 21 news release. VisAR, from Novarad, helps improve precision and uses 3D imaging to superimpose datasets on the patient's body.

VisAR was FDA cleared for stereotactic spinal surgery, and clearance for stereotactic cranial surgery is pending in the U.S.
