The term neuronavigation is synonymous with image guided surgery (IGS), computer assisted surgery (CAS) and stereotactic navigation.

You can compare surgical navigation technology to the location and directional tracking system used in cars today. It is, in effect, a GPS system for the surgeon.

As drivers use a GPS to navigate roads, Surgeon uses these images to confirm the position of his instruments in a patient’s body. As Surgeon moves an instrument in the body, the position is precisely calculated. The data is transferred using infrared cameras to a computer in the operating room.

The computer then superimposes the position of the instruments as they are used in surgery onto images of the anatomy displayed on a monitor. This allows Doctor to see the real time positioning of his instruments in three dimensions.


  • Before surgery, a diagnostic image (usually a CT or MR scan) is performed. This is then loaded into a computer. The scan is used to create a 3D model of the patient’s anatomy.
  • At the beginning of the surgery, Surgeon maps the patient’s anatomy using special techniques and an infrared camera in the operating room. The computer system then links the pre-operative diagnostic image to the patient’s anatomy.
  • Using the neuro navigation system as a tool, Surgeon can then see his instruments on the computer image and confirm their exact location at any time.

How do patients benefit from neuro navigation in brain surgery?

  • When performing surgery in the brain, the navigation system allows Surgeon to tailor his approach to the structure in the brain, causing minimal disruption or retraction to surrounding tissue.
  • The system allows Surgeon to ‘see’ through the scalp, skull and brain so trajectories can be planned.
  • It allows Surgeon to see whether he has successfully removed the entire tumor and avoid damage to surrounding healthy tissue during deep brain stimulation (DBS).
  • It allows the surgeon to confidently and precisely choose the exact point to place stimulators and other instruments to treat Parkinson’s disease and other neurological disorders

How do patients benefit from neuro navigation in spine surgery?

  • Absolute precision is necessary in spine surgery because of its proximity to the spinal cord and nerves. Spinal navigation helps Surgeon navigate through the bone, while avoiding damage to the adjacent neural structures.
  • This not only helps Surgeon perform a minimally invasive procedure, but it allows him to visualise and plan the  exact incision and screw placement.
  • Surgeon can pass instruments into the vertebrae with more confidence and a higher degree of accuracy.

    Please bring either the printed films or a disc as supplied by your medical imaging provider, if an electronic copy is not available. Please confirm the location of where your scans were done prior to your appointment to determine if we can access images.

    Minimally invasive surgery means surgery through a very small incision. There is less trauma and pain due to the minimal disruption of the musculature. patients will experience a faster recovery, shorter hospital stay, and can return to pre-surgery activity much more quickly.

    Recovery varies based on the particular surgery. generally, it is recommended that patients take two weeks off work to recover from any surgery.
