“Hip Phantom Development for Mixed Reality-Guided Orthopaedic Sugery”

Femoroacetabular Impingment (FAI) is a hip condition which causes pain and disability. Orthopedic surgery for this procedure can alleviate symptoms, but the procedure is challenging due to the way that the surgeon’s limited view of the joint and the difficulty of removing bone properly to reduce pain. Maya’s Stanford Bio-X research will involve the development of a mixed-reality system for intraoperative image-guided FAI surgery, in the hopes of aiding orthopedic surgeons during this complicated procedure.
