Dr. Selman, Surgical Theater Featured on News
Chairman Warren R. Selman, MD, and the company Surgical Theater LLC recently were featured on a local Cleveland television news station WEWS-TV.
Dr. Selman is working with two ex-Israeli Air Force officers on a surgical simulator using the same technology as flight simulators to allow realistic, interactive run-throughs of brain surgeries prior to actual procedures.
Called Surgery Rehearsal Platform, the surgical simulator, which was developed by Cleveland-based Surgical Theater LLC, uploads and transforms medical images, such as CT and MRI scans of patients, into life-like, dynamic and interactive 3D models. SRP enables surgeons to plan and rehearse surgeries by seeing and interacting with an accurate replica of what they would see and use when operating on the patient. The surgeons can work on virtual blood vessels or brain tissue with virtual tools prior to performing surgery on the patient.
