Kellogg Now Performing 3-D Navigated Small-Incision Orbital Surgery - Thyroid eye disease

I know that not many of us have thyroid eye disease or indeed will ever have to face the decision to have surgery but for those who might, this is good news.

The new system gives surgeons a clearer view of the orbit and leads to faster, safer and more precise surgeries than traditional non-navigated methods. In addition to improving patient care, the system is also an important teaching tool that allows Kellogg faculty to instruct trainees in real time instead of relying on two-dimensional computer images or physical models of the skull. A manuscript describing Dr. Kahana’s initial experience with this system was recently published in the journal of Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery.
