A robotic digital microscope for brain surgery

You can save more lives for those living with brain tumours, disease and injuries. We need to raise £750,000 to fund a pioneering digital microscope for those in need of brain surgery.

Brain surgery is one of the most complex and time-consuming operations a patient can have.  You can play a pivotal role in transforming the outcomes for patients by donating to help us purchase a pioneering digital microscope which will hugely transform outcomes for patients.

Using International Space Station technology, the automated robotic digital microscope has image guidance and surgical planning software. This will make intricate brain operations more accurate and precise, reducing operating time so we can treat more patients. It will help to reduce the risks of complications, improve recovery time and reduce side effects following surgery.

Every single donation will make a difference to patients – saving more lives for those living with brain tumours, disease, and injuries.

“It is the only fully automated robotic digital microscope, derived from technology created for the International Space Station, and seamlessly combines state-of-the-art engineering with the latest breakthrough in optics, video processing, digital augmentation, and robotic automation to deliver a new kind of operating experience.”

Mr Mario Teo, Consultant Neurosurgeon

You can revolutionise brain surgery

Southmead Hospital is a major neurosurgical centre in the UK. Every year, over 3,500 patients from across the country need hugely complex, often life-saving brain surgery.

The cutting-edge microscope will allow leading surgeons like Mr. Teo to perform major operations with pinpoint precision and can also be used across other specialties, including cardiac, spinal, and plastic surgery. Whatever you can give, your support will give thousands of patients the very best chance at recovery for years to come.

Thank you for your support – it makes a huge difference to our patients, their families and our staff.
