3D Exoscope Transforms Minimally Invasive Herniated Disc Surgery

Neurosurgeon Stephen Kalhorn, M.D., uses a 3D digital exoscope to perform a minimally invasive tubular microdiscectomy to relieve pain in a patient with a herniated disc. He explains the transformative power of this new tool, which gives high-definition global views in a more relaxed and comfortable manner than that achieved with a conventional microscope. This creates an easier, more streamlined experience for patients and surgeons and gives the surgical team the capacity to work together synergistically by observing the same detailed view.
