Cancer surgery broadcast

22 May, 2014

Dr. Shafi Ahmed, a surgeon at the Royal London Hospital, is the first to livestream a surgery he performs on a patient with liver and bowel cancer while wearing Glass. Medical students around the world are able to get a first-person view of what he sees as he performs the surgery. Roy Pulfer, the patient, says he is glad to participate in the event:

I’m happy that it will help educate young people. They like using technology so it’s great for them. The staff have been great to me all the way and explained every step of the operation so clearly.
