Augmented reality revolutionizes neurosurgery in Bloomington

IU Health Bloomington Hospital

At IU Health Bloomington, teams are dedicated to positively impacting patients' lives by combining high-quality patient care and leading-edge technology.

One way Bloomington neurosurgeons Jason Voorhies, MD, and Bryan Wohlfeld, MD, are revolutionizing their patient care is with a state-of-the-art augmented reality tool that allows them to perform minimally invasive surgeries with exceptional precision.

“I think using this augmented reality system has a lot of advantages for the patient and the surgeon,” says Wohlfeld. “The technology makes the minimally invasive surgeries very streamlined and effective. This brings me up front and center to where I need to be.”

“I’ve been very happy with the results that my patients have achieved,” says Voorhies. “I’ve had several patients who had just wonderful relief of their back pain and nerve pain, and they’re very happy.”
