Mumbai surgeon from Apollo Spectra Hospitals, Chembur successfully conducts Bariatric Surgery using Google Glass


Mumbai, 26th August 2016: In a first-of-its-kind Bariatric Surgery in Mumbai, on an international patient, Dr Sanjay Borude, Consultant, Bariatric Surgery, Apollo Spectra Hospitals, Chembur conducted a surgery today equipped with wearable technology for healthcare. Dr. Borude took up this surgery wearing a revolutionary Google Glass that enables to secure real-time streaming of any event viewed on one’s smart glasses to different users and devices such as desktops, tablets or smart phones using Augmented Reality (AR).
Dr. Sanjay Borude and his team performed a Sleeve Gastrectomy and the surgery was streamed live across the world with the help of Google Glass, which allowed the doctor to capture the surgery, without the hassle of wires and cameras and mikes restricting their movements. This enabled a seamless surgery that could be seen, unrestricted, live by other doctors, students and academicians.
Sleeve Gastrectomy is a procedure where approximately 75-80 percent of the stomach is removed and is intended for the severe and complex obese population. This is meant for patients for whom prevention is a little late, and the only hope of regaining health and quality of life is undergoing a bariatric surgery.
Before the surgery, in the last few years, the patient had been hospitalized number of times due to various problems she was facing like hypertension, back ache and knee pain. Over time, her consultations and dosages increased and other measure were ineffective due to which she decided to undergo a surgery.
Speaking about the path breaking technology, Dr. Sanjay Borude, Consultant, Bariatric Surgery, Apollo Spectra Hospitals, Chembur said, “A bariatric surgery is a life-saving intervention as it helps morbidly obese patients battling medical conditions that were either caused by, or related to, obesity. “The use of WATCH (Wearable Technology in Healthcare) is going to be a game-changer in medicine and I'm proud to be the first bariatric surgeon in Mumbai to use this technology. Medical College students around the world can watch and learn from landmark surgeries with no disturbance to the procedure. Expert surgeons from any part of the world can guide surgeons during difficult surgeries,"
