Who would benefit from using the Rods&Cones services

Healthcare Professionals & Hospitals

From surgery assistance to remote proctoring; using Rods&Cones’ remote assistance services, healthcare professionals can demonstrate or attend live surgeries giving them a close up view without the need for a production team.
