Augmented Reality Assisted Surgery

ATLAS or AugmenTed reaLity Assisted  Surgery is a project to develop leading technologies for Image Based Augmentation of Laparoscopic Surgery.  It is based on the current leading technologies of Maxer in the field of fluorescence surgeries combined with the know-how of the leading experts in augmented reality surgery.

It will provide the surgeon with a “GPS-System” that enables to perform advanced laparoscopic surgeries with increased surgical precision. This will reduce complications and risks during oncological surgeries and increase quality of patient life.

To have best possible results in this project, Maxer is working together with two of the most experienced partners in this field. The LMU Klinikum München and the Technische Universität München. This consortium was established to bring in highest expertise, professionality and creativity into this project that can be a game-changer in laparoscopic surgery.

  • LMU Klinikum München with Department of General Visceral and Transplantation Surgery:

  • It offers the whole operative spectrum with specialization oncologic surgery, transplantation surgery, minimal-invasive-surgery and robotic surgery with Prof. Dr. Werner as head of department and more than 60 working visceral surgeons.
  • LMU Klinikum is second biggest university hospital in Germany and #30 in the World University Ranking (Medicine 2016). It has more than 150 medical professors, more than 9.000 employees and 2.240 hospital beds.

  • Technische Universität München with CAMP, the Chair for Computer Aided Medical Procedures & Augmented Reality:

  • CAMP was founded in 2003 with currently over 50 researchers and Prof. Nassir Navab as Director. CAMP aims at developing the next generation solutions for computer assisted interventions and works closely together with industry leaders in this field.
  • TU Munich is member of the German Excellence Cluster, ranked #9 THE World University Ranking (Computer Science, 2016) and ranked #4 in Europe’s Most Innovative Universities ranking.
  • The project is supported and co-funded by the German government (BMBF).
