We contribute to healthcare's evolution combining the advanced technologies of Sony and Olympus

In the surgical society, there is a high demand for safe and minimally invasive procedures. To meet the demand rigid endoscopes and surgical microscopes have been used. Minimally-invasive endoscopic procedures are becoming rapidly and widely accepted and are regarded as a standard procedure in various specialties; however, they are performed with limited visual field and depth perception. With surgical microscopes surgeons can observe magnified field with depth perception, however, they are forced to keep strained postures for a long period of time to look through the eyepiece. There is a strong demand for surgical devices to reduce the fatigue of surgeons and allow them to safely perform the surgeries.
