This is the first successful Glass-to-Glass collaboration between two Google Glass wearing surgeons. Dr. Marlies P. Schijven MD PhD MHSc was performing live surgery from the operating room at the Academic Medical Center in Amsterdam, the Netherlands and Dr. Raphael Grossmann MD, FACS streamed his Google Glass vision to the audience at the Congress. The surgeons were in direct contact; both wearing Google Glass. Simultaneously, the video of the Google Glass of Dr. Schijven performing live laparoscopic surgery was broadcasted live to YouTube, a world-wide première.
The project was a joint collaboration between performing GoogleGlassSurgeon dr. Marlies P.Schijven, UReason, Droiders, and collaborating surgeon dr. Raphael Grossmann.
It is the first of a series of projects of our team evaluating the use of Google Glass in surgery and for the medical professional.
