Surgery navigation

Computer-assisted navigation in surgery refers to the use of computer-based systems to improve the precision and accuracy of surgical procedures. These systems use 3D images of a patient to determine and monitor the precise position and orientation of surgical instruments during surgery through continuous camera acquisition. The navigation unit consists of a camera that detects the position and orientation of specially marked surgical instruments and matches them to previous planning data. A computer calculates in real time where the instrument is in relation to the planned path and provides appropriate feedback to the surgeon. 

Navigated surgery can be used in many different areas of medicine, such as: 

  • Orthopedics: when implanting joints such as hips or knees, navigated surgery can help optimize implant positioning and alignment. 
  • Neurosurgery: when removing brain tumors or implanting stimulation devices in Parkinson’s patients, navigated surgery can help to perform precise and safe procedures. 
  • Otolaryngology: When removing tumors in the head and neck or implanting cochlear implants, navigated surgery can help identify and spare critical structures such as nerve tracts and blood vessels. 
  • Urology: When removing prostate cancer or treating urinary incontinence, navigated surgery can help increase the precision and safety of procedures. 
  • Gastroenterology: when removing tumors in the gastrointestinal tract, navigated surgery can help increase the accuracy of procedures and reduce soft tissue damage.
