Doctors discussing computed tomography (CT) scans on screenSpecialized surgeons perform holography-assisted surgery to treat patients remotely and instruct other physicians on operating procedures. Holography makes surgery less invasive and potentially offers better outcomes for patients, while also freeing up surgeon time.
