- Bimanual surgery enhances surgical effectiveness and is required to successfully accomplish complex microsurgical tasks. The essential advantage is the ability to simultaneously grasp tissue with one hand to provide counter traction or exposure, while dissecting with the other. Towards enhancing the precision and safety of bimanual microsurgery we present a bimanual SMART micro-surgical system for a preliminary ex-vivo study. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first demonstration of a handheld bimanual microsurgical system. The essential components include a ball-lens coupled common-path swept source optical coherence tomography sensor. This system effectively suppresses asynchronous hand tremor using two PZT motors in feedback control loop and efficiently assists ambidextrous tasks. It allows precise bimanual dissection of biological tissues with a reduction in operating time as compared to the same tasks performed with conventional onehanded approaches. © 2016 Optical Society of America.
