Augmented Reality in Pediatric Minimally Invasive Surgery

C.S. Mott Children's Hospital at the University of Michigan Health System is nationally recognized as one of the leading pediatric health care centers in the United States.

Minimally invasive surgical (MIS) operations, performed at C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital and other hospitals nationwide, involve the use of booms and monitors which come with significant financial costs and can limit surgeons' performance in accessing patient data streams while sterile.

The Tauber team will work to fully integrate the HoloLens augmented reality (AR) technology for use in minimally invasive surgeries, outlining the technical requirements to introduce patient data streams (real-time surgical camera video feed, patient images, vitals) into the HoloLens, as well as providing a comprehensive business case that outlines the financial and surgeon-centric benefits of integrating AR technology at Mott and other hospitals.
