FOX5 DC Features Dr. Good’s First Augmented Reality Spine Surgery in Virginia-DC Region

Authored by: Dr. Christopher Good

On October 8, 2020 Dr. Good used the groundbreaking technology to perform a lumbar fusion surgery on a 43-year-old male patient.

The AR “Xvision”system, made by Augmedics, makes it possible for surgeons to visualize a patient’s 3D spinal anatomy during surgery – almost like they have ‘x-ray vision.’ This groundbreaking new technology is the first application of augmented reality in surgery and has the potential to streamline and partner several technologies in the operating room, giving surgeons better control and making procedures easier, safer, faster and less invasive.

The surgery was performed at Reston Hospital Center (HCA Virginia Health System).
