This video shows Ireland's first mixed reality augmented shoulder replacements, which Ms. Delaney performed in April 2021. Bringing the latest, cutting-edge advances in shoulder surgery to Irish patients is something Ms. Delaney is passionate about.

Using the Hololens and mixed reality has now become a routine part of all shoulder replacements Ms. Delaney performs, both at Beacon Hospital and at SSC. It is based on detailed pre-operative planning from a CT scan of the shoulder which allows accurate evaluation of the shoulder joint and is entered into planning software which then allows Ms. Delaney to create not only a surgical plan but also mixed reality visualisation for use during the surgery.
Stryker recently sent a film crew to Dublin to have Ms. Delaney record footage for them as an expert in this new and emerging aspect of shoulder replacement surgery.
