Surgical Planning Laboratory

Hussein Kekhia M.D. (March 2008-April 2011)

I am a graduate of the American University of Beirut. I began working in the Surgical Planning Laboratory, because I was very interested with intraoperative imaging. In neurosurgical procedures, intraoperative imaging has been its greatest innovation because it allows the neurosurgeon to update the imaging scans, and by thus allows him/her to correct for the brain shift and eliminate the resulting anatomical discrepancies that would have been evident on pre-operatively acquired imaging scans. I believe that these novel and innovative imaging techniques will one day lead to substantially decreased patient morbidities, and will also significantly ameliorate patient prognosis and survival.
