Move the World.

Brain surgery is never easy -- for the doctor or the patient. Now, virtual reality is changing the game. Surgical Theater has created a revolutionary new tool, powered by Intel technology, that allows surgeons and patients to prepare for complicated new surgeries in ways never before possible.

Surgeons have previously had to rely on 2D images and their imagination to visualize a surgery, but now they are able to use 3D, VR headsets to see what it will actually look like when they perform the surgery - and practice doing it. And patients benefit by being able to see and understand how their condition will be treated.
