Google Glass may become surgeon's new BFF

Washington, Dec 26 : In what could turn out to be a major breakthrough in the surgical world, an orthopedic surgeon at the University of Alabama-Birmingham prepared for a shoulder replacement surgery using, surprisingly, the Google Glass.

Google's contribution to technology can let an expert lend a helping hand in the operating room, even when he or she is in another part of the world, CBS News reported.

Dr. Brent Ponce acquired the help of Dr. Phani Dantuluri, who was 150 miles away in Atlanta, during the shoulder replacement procedure.

Dr. Dantuluri could not only see, but actually offer her virtual help to Ponce who wore the wearable computer that sent a live video of the procedure via a built-in camera.

Ponce described first putting on the Google Glass as a "little bit of a light bulb experience".
