The Valdez Lab

Surgical training has changed with the inception of surgical simulation; however, tools to assess progress in a non-subjective, quantitative manner have not been adequately developed. Our laboratory crosses the interface of optics and medicine utilizing video as our investigational armamentarium. We develop new generation surgical visualization instruments to improve our ability diagnose and achieve complete excision of disease processes. We understand that our work encompasses various fields and we welcome and value the input of experts in various disciplines.
