As we have stayed focused on the news and coverage around the launch of the various virtual reality headsets, a quiet revolution has been transpiring around the use case of Virtual Reality in medicine. VR in healthcare is projected to be a big sector as evidenced in the new Goldman Sachs research report.
Last week, Surgical Theatres announced that they are opening up a new office in our neighborhood, Los Angeles. There wasn’t a big red carpet event or a major paparazzi show down. Most openings and announcements in LA do not happen without usually the Kardashians or the Kameras. So I decided to find out more about this innovative firm. The new unit in LA is expected to be their new Virtual Reality Division and will be led by Alon Zuckerman.
Surgical Theater is based out of Ohio and specializes in products and services related to niche surgical applications. Their neurosurgery imaging platform The SuRgical Planner™ reconstructs CT and MRI images/scans (DICOM) into dynamic, interactive 3D models with life-like tissue reaction and accurate modeling of surgery tools.
