Expansion of Center for the Future of Surgery at UC San Diego School of Medicine
SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – The Center for the Future of Surgery at University of California San Diego School of Medicine expanded the center to address the newest surgical trends, especially those benefiting the brain and nervous system.
“The expansion of the Center for the Future of Surgery demonstrates UC San Diego’s continued and absolute commitment to patient safety,” said Santiago Horgan, MD, CFS director. “The Center offers surgeons of all specialties a rare opportunity to train on the newest techniques and technologies outside of a live operating room. This is where the next generation of surgeons is acquiring hands-on knowledge and experience to provide patients with the best, safest operations possible.”
The 22,000 square-foot center has added two one-of-a-kind training spaces: a new hybrid operating room and a microsurgical suite. The new spaces allow for training in highly specialized areas, such as interventional endovascular surgery involving delicate procedures to stop brain hemorrhages, repair arteries, reconstruct facial nerves and restore hearing.
