3DHD Surgery

Take a tour of UH Parma Medical Center's state-of-the-art 3DHD Operating Suite with Dr. Carson Wong, a nationally renowned urologist and Medical Director for the Center for Minimally Invasive and Robotic Surgery at UH Parma Medical Center. In this video Dr. Wong explains what 3DHD surgery is and the benefits for patients.

UH Parma Medical Center is the first hospital in the greater Cleveland area to integrate a three-dimensional (3D) high-definition (HD) surgical vision system into its operating room. The addition of the 3DHD Vision System from Viking Systems provides the hospital with a fully integrated 3DHD laparoscopic operating suite.

When the surgeon has 3D vision, the patient benefits from:

  • Increased safety
  • Improved outcomes
  • Improved operative times 

While surgeons performing open procedures could view a patient’s anatomy in three dimensions using their eyes, the advent of laparoscopic surgery limited such visualization to two dimensions in favor of the patient benefits offered by minimally invasive laparoscopy. Some surgical specialties have been re-introduced to the benefits of 3DHD vision through the hospital’s robotic surgical system. Laparoscopic visualization comes full circle with the introduction of a stand-alone 3DHD visualization system.   

The new 3DHD Vision System complements the da Vinci Si robot surgical platform UH Parma Medical Center began utilizing last year. UH Parma Medical Center has the only fully integrated 3DHD minimally invasive operating suite in the greater Cleveland area at this time.

”Operating with 3DHD is the best of both worlds,” says Carson Wong, MD, FRCSC, FACS, medical director of the Center for Minimally Invasive and Robotic Surgery at UH Parma Medical Center. “Our patients continue to experience the benefits of laparoscopic surgery, while our surgeons gain the critical depth perception we lost with conventional 2D laparoscopy."
