Northwell Neurosurgeon is Long Island’s first to use Modus V™ 3D exoscope

Neurosurgeon removes brain tumor using Synaptive’s Modus V 3D exoscope at North Shore University Hospital.

Dr. Michael Schulder, a neurosurgeon at North Shore University Hospital, has used Synaptive Medical’s Modus V™ 3D exoscope to successfully perform brain tumor surgery. Modus V™ is a fully automated, robotic digital microscope combining advanced optics with 3D visualization, video processing and robotic automation allowing for a more precise excision of brain tumors.

Unlike traditional microscopes, Modus V allows all members of the operating room team to see the magnified surgical field which is displayed on a nearby computer screen at the same time the surgeon is viewing it in 3D. Modus V provides twice the depth of field and more than double the amount of magnification as a conventional operating microscope.

The video exoscope provides the clinician with auto-focus and voice-activated control, as well as control of the camera position hands-free, so that the surgeon can keep their hands operating at all times with better visualization and navigation.
