Safdar N. Khan, M.D., is one of the first surgeons in the country to use augmented reality (AR) glasses for improved precision in the operating room. AR allows him to make smaller incisions on patients and conduct more efficient and shorter operations.

Khan says AR has endless potential for a wide range of spinal issues, including complex spinal deformity, degenerative age-related spinal conditions, spinal trauma, and tumors.
