Today my brother in law, +Lorne Rosenfield M.D.
became the first plastic surgeon to use Google Glass for a live streaming of a plastic surgery. The procedure, an eyelid lift (blepharoplasty), was performed on October 29th in his Burlingame surgery center and streamed in real time to plastic surgical residents at both UCSF and Stanford.
I watched the surgery in my car on my Motorola Maxx and shot this video. I did a quick search and there have only only been a couple of Google Glass recorded surgeries in the world, and this case became the first of its kind in plastic surgery. Although Google Glass may be in “beta” phase now, Dr. Rosenfield’s goal was to prove its far reaching potential in the operating rooms of the very near future!
