Google Glass’ abilities excite surgeons
(Thursday, 16 January 2014) GOOGLE Glass – a wearable computer that resembles a pair of glasses – may be set to transform the medical world, after the device has been used once again during two surgical procedures.
Orthopedic surgeon Dr. Selene Parekh recently used the technology as he conducted foot and ankle surgery during the Indo-US conference in Jaipur, India. And in December last year, the device was worn by plastic surgeon Dr. Anil Shah as he carried out rhinoplasty on a patient who broke her nose.
These surgeons are the latest to use the technology in the operating room. Earlier this year, Medical News Today reported on a surgeon from the US who live-streamed a procedure using Google Glass and an iPad.
