Computer Aided Surgery Resources
Computer-assisted surgery uses computer technology for guiding and completing surgical intervention. The method has been used since 1989. Computer-assisted surgery provides clearer visualization and pinpoint targeting of the surgical area. The procedure consists of image-guided surgery, three-dimensional computer surgery, robotic surgery, and any surgery using a computer-based method. Computer based procedures allow the surgeon to practice before hand.
