Advanced Digital Exoscope Provides Unparalleled Vantage Point for Pediatric Neurosurgery

 Pediatric neurosurgeon Ramin Eskandari, M.D., performs a spinal cord detethering procedure with fluid pocket release on a 15-month-old child, and he explains how optimal surgical field visualization enhances patient safety and manages surgeon fatigue. Eskandari uses an imaging and monitoring approach that includes a preoperative MRI puncture to mark the spot externally, continuous nerve monitoring to keep the patient safe, ultrasound verification, and whole-field visualization using a Synaptive Modus V digital exoscope.

The MUSC Shawn Jenkins Children’s Hospital & Pearl Tourville Women’s Pavilion is the first pediatric hospital in North America to own and operate with this game-changing 3D scope system. The powerful combination of coordinated imaging and forward-thinking technology allows Eskandari to perform minimally invasive techniques while providing both patient and physician safety.
