Dr Geoffrey Smith performs shoulder surgery at St George Private Hospital, St George Hospital and Sutherland Hospital for a comprehensive range of shoulder conditions.
He is one of the first surgeons in Australia to be using Blueprint™ Mixed Reality for shoulder arthroplasty surgery.
Blueprint Mixed Reality provides surgeons with a digital, 3D holographic view of a patient’s pre-operative plan within the actual surgical field.
During surgery, the 3D hologram technology enables Dr Smith to maintain a direct view of the surgical site and simultaneously visualise and manipulate a holographic representation of the patient’s native anatomy and pre-operative plan.
By using hand gestures and voice commands, Dr Smith can interact with a robust data set to optimise the position of the 3D holographic models. This allows him to replicate the pre-operative plan as closely as possible given the availability of information while operating.
Dr Smith has written detailed patient information guides for common shoulder conditions and shoulder surgery.
