  • Patent number: 11998281
    Abstract: Methods, apparatuses, and systems for performing robotic surgery in an extended reality (XR) collaborative customizable virtual operating room are disclosed. The disclosed systems provide a virtual environment in which a surgical robot network receives medical images of a patient and creates a digital twin from a patient's medical images. The surgical robot network allows a first user to create a virtual environment to perform a surgical procedure, select workflow objects, and perform actions on the digital twin. The data of the workflow objects and actions in relation to the digital twin is stored. The first user invites a second user to join the virtual environment who may collaborate with the first user on the workflow objects and actions performed to adjust the workflow, workflow objects, and actions performed. The workflow, workflow objects, actions in relation to the digital twin are sent to a surgical robot.

    Abstract: Systems and methods for providing assistance to a surgeon during an implant surgery are disclosed. A method includes defining areas of interest in diagnostic data of a patient and defining a screw bone type based on the surgeon's input. Post defining the areas of interest, salient points are determined for the areas of interest. Successively, an XZ angle, an XY angle, and a position entry point for a screw are determined based on the salient points of the areas of interest. Successively, a maximum screw diameter and a length of the screw are determined based on the salient points. Thereafter, the screw is identified and suggested to the surgeon for usage during the implant surgery.

  • Patent number: 11963724
    Abstract: This specification describes systems, methods, devices, and related techniques for optimizing 3D printed implants. A 3D network can collect medical images from an imaging device and create a 3D image of the damaged or malfunctioning body part. The 3D network allows a user to alter the 3D image to fix the damages or malfunctions and the 3D network, compares the altered 3D image to a historical database containing healthy patient's medical images, and provides recommendations to allow the user to further enhance the altered 3D image. The 3D network then performs a simulation on the enhanced 3D image to determine, if the 3D image was printed, if it will be successful or not. Once successful, the 3D image is printed using a 3D printer and the user tests the compatibility of the 3D printed object to determine if the implant or transplant would be successful.

  • Publication number: 20240065768
    Abstract: Technologies for providing assistance to a surgeon during a surgical procedure are disclosed. An example method includes identifying a medical condition of a patient and recommending surgical procedures for treatment. An optimal surgical procedure is then determined based on correlations between the medical condition of the patient and outcomes of previous surgical procedures for other patients previously suffering from the medical condition. A 3D model of the patient may be created using current images of an affected area of the patient. Successively, a surgeon is trained using a Virtual Reality simulation. During the training, the surgeon may be allowed to provide annotations. Further, the recommended surgical procedures are based on medical data of the patient, including medical images.

  • Publication number: 20240065762
    Abstract: The disclosed technology provides for printing a 3D structure in-situ within a patient during a surgical procedure. The disclosed technology can include generating instructions for a 3D printer of a surgical robot to print a structure within the patient's body, simulating and verifying the instructions, and autonomously or semi-autonomously executing the instructions, once verified, during a surgical procedure. Generating the instructions for printing the 3D structure within the patient can be based on image data of the patient. Generating the instructions can also include selecting substrate materials that are both safe for the patient and having desired properties of the final printed structure. Modifications can be made to the instructions based on results from the simulation. The disclosed technology provides for application of safe substrate material directly to hard and/or soft tissues within the patient's body via an additive manufacturing process, such as 3D printing.
