Here in the United States, Eastern Maine Medical Center surgeon Rafael Grossman endoscopically inserted a feeding tube into a patient, Forbes reports. The procedure, which occurred on Thursday, was streamed live to a Google Hangout as the image was captured using Google Glass, according to PC Magazine. The live stream was not available to the public. Grossman details the Google Glass experience—and how he protected patient health information—on his blog.
The next day in Spain, a surgeon at the CEMTRO Clinic used Google Glass to perform a chondrocyte transplant operation to treat cartilage injury, according to the Reuters/Solar News. The operation was monitored by consulting physicians at Stanford University, according to The Local.
