3D planning of craniotomy, head position. Optimize approaches to the pathology for Keyhole and other minimally invasive techniques. Planning and seeing, in advance, the expected “surgeon’s view”.
Over 600 cranial cases nationwide, consisting of both tumor and cerebrovascular cases, have been planned on the SRP to date.
The 3D SuRgical Planner™ reconstructs CT and MRI images/scans (DICOM) into dynamic, interactive 3D models with life-like tissue reaction and accurate modeling of surgery tools. The SRP allows surgeons to plan and rehearse a specific patient’s case.
The SNAP connects to the standard OR intra-operative navigation system and enhances the 3D navigation and situational awareness.
Surgical Theater introduces the next breakthrough in operating room technology – the Surgical Navigation Advanced Platform (SNAP) – providing advanced 3D capabilities and augmented reality in the operating room.
“We anticipate using this technology will support our mission to provide outstanding quality of care to our patients and will provide long-term risk reduction and efficiency improvement, both key in helping hospitals provide high quality and cost-effective care.”
~ Dr. Joshua B. Bederson, Professor and Chair, Department of Neurosurgery at The Mount Sinai Hospital.
“As a result of the development of endovascular techniques, open aneurysm surgery has become much less common. Using technology such as the SRP will result in an improved training experience for young surgeons, provide meaningful rehearsal for experienced surgeons, enhance patient safety, and improve clinical outcomes.”

“Neurosurgery is one the most complex surgeries a patient can undergo…”
“The public trust is that I am competent to do this surgery,” said Dr. Warren Selman, Neurosurgeon-in-Chief of University Hospitals. “Well yes, I’m competent, but you want somebody more than competent. You want someone who is the best they can be. This allows an experienced surgeon to achieve those improved outcomes. It just makes sense.”
