Touch Surgery brings surgery training to Augmented Reality

Jan 6, 2017 ·


Training surgeons on specific surgical procedures is expensive and hard. London-based Touch Surgery has created more than 200 training programs for surgical procedures to be completed on a mobile phone or tablet. At CES, it announces support for a new type of deeply immersive surgery training — and potentially assistance in an operating room — on DAQRI and HoloLens.

"We believe in working with surgeons to optimize and scale best in class surgical procedures to enable training and delivery of safer surgery for patients globally," Touch Surgery’s CEO Dr Jean Nehme told me.

The company is teasing its augmented reality content for the first time at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas this week.
