Fluorescence Guided Surgery (FGS) is a surgical method that allows your surgeon to better visualize your structures in your body during the procedure. The use of fluorescence in surgery is simply a dye administered into the patient prior to surgery. During surgery, special near-infrared lighting is used to illuminate the anatomy, allowing the surgeon to visualize structures within the body. With the ability to see more, surgeons can operate more efficiently and prevent some operative injuries. This technology may improve surgical outcomes. Explore our patient resources to learn more about the uses of fluorescence guided surgery.
