Description: The purpose of this webinar is to delineate the scope of clinical and technological challenges associated with the incorporation of augmented reality technology in orthopedic surgery. The participants will have the opportunity to understand the benefits and risks associated with this technology from industry, FDA and surgeons’ perspectives. Augmented reality technology is becoming increasingly popular in orthopedic applications in the areas of spinal procedures, osteotomies, arthroplasty, trauma, and orthopedic oncology. While this technology provides new opportunities to improve surgical planning and execution, inadequate validation and training can contribute to adverse patient outcomes. There will be discussions on device-related adverse events and reporting limitations, surgical training and qualifications. We hope to share insight into the clinical and technological challenges that
will need to be met in order to ensure the safety and effectiveness of orthopedic devices integrating augmented reality technology and to improve the quality of treatment and patient outcomes.
