Operation Future: Brainlab shows medical innovations – Munich

Munich – Is the scalpel over soon?

Protective glasses, digital operating rooms and robotic arms performing the procedure: it is about the future operation. The Munich-based medical technology company, Brainlab, presented its latest technologies yesterday – Good medical explains them!

► Soon, surgeons can not only operate the patient, but also move virtually in his body. For example, if he has a brain tumor, the doctor uses the mixed-reality glasses to show the image of the brain as it was there. This allows him to "walk" in the patient's head as in a room and locate the tumor. With a remote control (touch screen), the surgeon can control the direction, go directly to the tumor and then operate it.

What looks like the Orion spacecraft's command bridge is the surgeons' training camp. The training center is just as futuristic as the device. Here, doctors are learning how to handle robots and mixed-reality glasses.

► The operating room of the future! The Klinikum rechts der Isar already has some equipment in this room. For example: A camera that films the entire procedure and even transmits it live in HD, allowing students to simultaneously watch the university.

► Artificial intelligence robots can also be used. For example, the robotic arm, which can be useful in spinal surgery when the screws have to stabilize the spine. The robot provides stability and precise interventions to the millimeter.
