Virtual Reality Helped Save Her Life

Danielle Collins was admitted to GW Hospital after she was diagnosed with a rare brain condition. She had a brain bleed caused by an abnormal tangle of blood vessels and needed surgery. Neurosurgeons at GW Hospital used advanced virtual reality technology to help save her life.

The team used VR to help plan the surgery and give Danielle a 360-degree view into her own anatomy. After the surgery, the team used VR again – this time to show Danielle the procedure was a success. She’s fully recovered now and back to her active lifestyle. “The level of care I felt was unparalleled to any I’ve ever felt in my life,” she says.
