Penn Computer Assisted Surgery and Outcomes Lab

About Us

The Penn Computer Assisted Surgery and Outcomes (PCASO) Laboratory is a multidisciplinary research group housed within Penn Surgery that aims to translate advances in data science and artificial intelligence to surgical care and to promote the integrated education of clinicians, engineers, and data scientists. With data sources spanning the range of pre-, intra-, and post-operative phases of care, we work with a wide range of data to investigate the association of intraoperative events with preoperative risk models and post-operative outcomes to improve the surgical decision-making process by augmenting surgeon perceptions with AI-enabled data insights. In addition, we are especially interested in developing and validating automated methods of providing surgeons with feedback on surgical technique both in simulated and clinical settings.

Mission

To lead the translation of surgical data science and artificial intelligence to surgical care to improve patient outcomes, facilitate surgical education, and promote interdisciplinary collaboration between computer scientists and surgeons.
