For visualizing surgical information (operation plans) directly onto the patient a projector-based augmented reality system is used for cranio-maxillofacial surgery. A prototype is introduced which has been evaluated in the first clinical cases. In a new setup with a second video projector it is now possible to give additionally 3D information for localization and orientation (6DoF). With this method the repositioning of a bone segment is intuitive and exact applicable.
