Description: The effort proposed is a new program of medical research and technology commercialization, to be known as the Minimally Invasive Surgical Navigation and Simulation Center (MISNSC). This 2-year program will combine research at the frontiers of minimally invasive surgery and medical education and will rapidly deploy new technology. The MISNSC will build on CAMIS (Computer-Assisted Minimally Invasive Surgery) program managed by the Cleveland Clinic Foundation and funded by the Command. The MISNSC is a targeted 24-month Phase I program that will support minimally invasive surgery development in five focus areas advanced sensors, surgical navigation, advanced visualization, surgical simulation, and enabling technologies. The effort has four project areas Surgical Navigation Delivery System, Percutaneous Spinal Surgery Simulator, In Vivo Pressure Measurement System and Commercialization Management System. The goal of the proposal is the establishment and operation of the National Minimally Invasive Surgery Commercialization Center (NMISCC) to speed the development of Minimally Invasive Surgery technology and methods to benefit U.S. warfighters.
