One of the most difficult aspects of surgery is precision. You’re working at such a high degree of accuracy that there is no margin for error. The smallest deviation can have a dramatic impact on your patient’s life. And that is the benefit of using new 3D microscopes.
A few weeks ago, I had the opportunity to use the latest 3D microscope, and the results were impressive. With extra features that help surgeons focus on the specific area of surgery – adjustable magnification, clear illumination, and perfect visualisation – surgeons are empowered to increase precision. This not only improves patient safety, but in cosmetic surgery helps to ensure that the final results are as close to patient expectations as possible.
Integrated with various imaging modalities, including fluorescence imaging, augmented reality, and optical coherence tomography (OCT), 3D microscopes have the potential to change surgical practices for the better. And I don’t think it will be long before every surgeon has access to one.
