UCLA Surgeons Use Google Glass to Teach Surgery Abroad
Media coverage of an educational project that is using Google Glass to help bring the latest hernia surgical techniques to doctors in resource-poor countries. With UCLA doctors’ help, local surgeons in Paraguay and Brazil in late May wore Google Glass while performing adult surgeries to repair a common type of hernia. Through Google Glass, the surgeries were viewed “live” via wireless streaming in the United States to a select group of leading surgeons who could watch and oversee the procedures. Dr. David Chen, assistant clinical professor of general surgery at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA and surgical resident Dr. Justin Wagner, are leading the project with the non-profit organization Hernia Repair for the Underserved. Both are quoted in the coverage.
