Doctors use Google Glass to live stream surgery

Google Glass has recently been helpful to assist doctors and medical students at the Ohio State University, and has been said to provide an experience to doctors that they never had before. As per ABC News, Christopher Kaeding, an orthopedic surgeon at OSU, accepted the wearable computer for a standard surgical treatment, repairing a torn ACL.

During this process, Glass’s sole aim was to allow Kaeding to join a Google Hangout, Google’s video conferencing service, the report said. However, an associate professor at John Hopkins Medical Institute said that the operation had always been connected to technology but in several cases, having access to all of these things might not help the patient even an iota.

Doctors using the device during the surgery even kept an extra battery with them, just in case the process took longer, the report added.
