Doctor with 3D Camera: 1, Cancer: 0 (video) reports that the doctor who pioneered what has become an international standard in neurosurgery is once again breaking new ground, becoming the first surgeon in Canada to use a 3D camera to remove a brain tumour.

Dr. Michael Cusimano (Toronto, Canada) made headlines 17 years ago when he became the first neurosurgeon in the world to remove tumours by endoscopic surgery, a minimally invasive procedure that involves sending a video lens along with instruments through both nostrils and into the brain. Earlier this month, Cusimano took that technique a big step forward in a surgical theatre at St. Michael’s Hospital, inserting a small 3D stereoscopic camera up the nose of a 75-year-old man. The surgeon scooped out a benign but large walnut-sized tumour on the patient’s pituitary gland at the base of his skull. The tumour was pressing on his optic nerve, causing him to go blind.
