New York City-based plastic surgeon Dr. Ramtin Kassir is relying on Google Glass for his practice on Park Avenue. Dr. Kassir, who says that Google Glass is more than a connected toy, is using the Glass to record operations, look up patient’s medical records, and also to send out live-streaming video of surgeries to med students.
One client kept the video of her procedure and can now view her sinus surgery and rhinoplasty anytime she wants to.
This, of course, isn’t the first time a doctor has fell in love with the Glass. One Boston Doc said that Google’s gadget helped him save a man’s life when he came to the ER with a bleed in his brain. Google Glass revealed the man’s drug allergies, and his life was spared.
“Every day, I come up with new uses. We showed on a big-screen TV… the inside of someone’s nose and their crooked septum and clogged sinuses,” Doctor Ramtin Kassir said. He picked up his Google Glass through the Explorer program, which has allowed a limited number of the devices to be sold.
