Healthcare Futurist & Innovator, and Full-time, General,Trauma, Acute Care, Advanced Laparoscopic & Robotic Surgeon.

My focus and passion is in the convergence of Innovation-Tech, Futurism & Healthcare Social Media (HCSM) to disrupt & improve Healthcare delivery & MedEd.

I performed the 1st ever documented surgery with GoogleGlass on June, 20, '13

"I firmly believe that telemedicine, m-Health technology & Healthcare Social media will, very soon,completely redefine the way in which healthcare is delivered and learned.
Innovation in the application of exponential technologies in Remote Presence, Augmented Reality, Artificial Intelligence & Deep Learning Systems to provide medical care, will cause a complete disruption of paradigms and allow for a better system".

"I think that the Smart-Glass, Virtual & Augmented & Mixed Reality(VR, AR, MR) represent the natural evolution of the Human-Computer interface. The future potential of this devices in Healthcare and medical education is limited only by our imagination".

I've had the honor to be a 4-times TEDx speaker and became a Singularity Univ-FutureMed-Exponential Medicine Alumnus in 02/2013 & Faculty in '15.
As a Healthcare FUTURIST, GOOGLEGLASS Explorer & SURGEON, I share my expertise, as a KEYNOTE SPEAKER, communicator, teacher & CONSULTANT, providing a vision for the potential of Technology to disrupt Healthcare, especially as it relates to Smart/ Glass & wearable platforms.
