Technology has transformed the way complex medical procedures such as orthopaedic surgeries are performed. The latest software, instruments, and imaging technology are assisting orthopedic surgeons in diagnosing, planning, and executing orthopedic surgeries for outstanding results. Advanced analytics and machine learning techniques are being used concurrently to help uncover critical insights and best practices from the billions of data elements associated with robotic-assisted surgery to improve diagnosis, procedures, treatment plans, and patient survival rates. Orthopedic surgeries that incorporate robotics are proved to be less invasive and offer greater precision, resulting in shorter hospital stays and faster recovery times.
New medical devices are allowing physicians to view beyond what endoscopic cameras can see. Technologies like AR can visualise unexposed bones and other tissues during surgery while using less invasive techniques. These visualisation devices allow the surgeon to view pre-operatively determined locations of incisions and real-time medical images with proper spatial alignment during surgery. Surgeons use AR technology to train and rehearse complicated procedures and ensure the highest level of safety and precision. Developing such virtual environments for education and training purposes has the potential to accelerate and supplement existing approaches used to educate and train medical doctors.
