Microsurgical Laboratory

MicroscopeThe Microsurgery Lab was created as a joint project between the Departments of Neurological Surgery, Otolaryngology, and the Body Donation Program. The lab is housed in the VirtuOHSU Simulation and Surgical Training Center. It features eight workstations equipped with Zeiss dissecting microscopes with inclining binocular heads, bi-articulated arms, and video cameras. The output of the video camera can be recorded on DVD for training or viewed by instructor on the overhead LED TV screen. There is also water and vacuum ported at each station and compressed air (120 psi) to drive a pneumatic drill. Alternatively, the workstation can be configured with an electric drill depending on your application. Currently, Neurological Surgery, Otolaryngology, and Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery are the biggest users of this lab space.
