Outpatient´s mind could control virtual Reality scenarios in the future just with his will, during ambulatory surgery with a Brain Computer Interface BCI technology. Up today we need our finger´s hands to control a computer screen, we need our head and neck movements to control a smartphone ´screen into a cardboard for immersive 3D virtual navigation or Oculus technology. Brain Computer Interface BCI is an innovative technology that has the proposal to introduce and extracts data information from the human Brain in lab and demonstrated in clinical trials with progressive results. Brain Computer Interface is a useful, innovative device with the possibilities in the future to perform virtual Reality navigations inside the brain using just the human mind. During outpatient or ambulatory surgery many patients cannot move their bodies, their arms, hands, and heads and so on. In this article we review our experience with VR in surgery and describe traditional technologies to control VR scenarios and we discuss the possibilities to use emergent technologies to reduce pain and anxiety while surgeon is performing surgeries.
