Patient Perspectives on AR-based Surgery

January 05, 2023

A subset of the PEAC Committee (12 members, including patients, physicians, researchers, and patient advocates) were asked to address two questions. Here, the Committee members stressed the need for safety and efficacy data from clinical studies. Specifically, the Committee members said they would want to know, for example, rates of complications and adverse events associated with AR-enabled surgery. Specific steps might include building registries of patient outcome data, and potentially identifying and monitoring “Centers of Excellence”5 for AR use in surgery. In this context of sharing information about safety and efficacy data, Committee members suggested various approaches for patient education and patient engagement.
