SURGICAL SUITE: Neurosurgical operating room of the future incorporates aeronautical industry concepts

The next phase of the OR of the future is to focus at the cellular level through next-generation imaging that will allow advanced interrogation of normal and diseased neural tissue…which will be systematically captured in the background, curated, and analyzed by the informatics system.”

How to redesign the neurosurgical operating room to incorporate concepts borrowed, in part, from the aeronautical industry is explored in this scholarly article.  How to improve patient safety by focusing on data collection and on honing the science of surgery is discussed.  This article is based on pioneering work being done at the Aurora Neuroscience Innovation Institute (Milwaukee) in collaboration with vendors Storz Corp., Stryker Corp., Synaptive Medical, and Nico Corp.
