A Road Map for Computational Surgery: Challenges and Opportunities

Prof. Dr. Marc Garbey
Computer Science and Engineering Technology, University of Houston


In this talk we will introduce the fundamental concepts of computational surgery and proposes a road map for progress in this new multidisciplinary field of applied investigation. As the digital revolution transforms the working environment of the surgeon, close collaboration between surgeons and computational scientists is not only unavoidable but essential to harness the capabilities of both fields to optimize the surgical care. We believe that this new collaboration will allow the community to develop not only predictive models for the outcomes of surgery, but also to enhance the process of surgery - from procedural planning, to execution of procedures and technology interfaces, to assessment of the healing process – investigations that will potentially provide great impact on patient care that far beyond the operating room.

The foundation of the COmputational Surgery International NEtwork (Cosine – in partnership with Dr. Barbara Bass, chair of the department of surgery at the Methodist Hospital follows this strategy. We will present two computational framework to illustrate our ideas, one on breast conservative therapy (collaboration with B.Bass) and one on vein graft (collaboration with Scott Berceli and Roger Tran Son Tay). To predict surgery outcome is a scientific problem that is extremely difficult to resolve. These two examples should show that complex interdisciplinary multi-scale modelling and large scale simulation will play an increasing key role in the solution process.
