Lafayette General Medical Center (LGMC) is pioneering a new technology for patients needing complex brain surgeries. With a recent brain tumor procedure, Lafayette General Medical Center became the first hospital in Louisiana, and only the second location in the world, to utilize a GPS-like brain surgery system called BrightMatter Servo Solution. This system, by Synaptive Medical, Inc., helps neurosurgeons navigate the brain’s 3D fiber tractography. Servo uses three elements – robotic-assisted lighting and optics, GPS-like guidance and navigation planning software – to help the neurosurgeon see the target. News Ten’s Renee Allen has the story.
