What Our Clients Say
Dr. Usama Hamdan
FICS, Co-founder and President of the Global Smile Foundation - Westwood, Massachusetts, United States
“I was guiding one of my colleagues on the marking of the cleft lip revision. Because he’s a very well-established and experienced CF plastic surgeon, he was able to follow my guidance.”
Dr. Bugra Sezen
Associate Professor - Yedikule Thoracic Surgery And Chest Diseases, Istanbul, Turkey

Dr. David Nellensteijn

“It’s an immersive experience. Our colleagues have been able to follow the surgery from their houses and other hospitals and have the same view as if it would be them doing the surgery.”
Dr. Jörg Zehetner
Professor of Surgery - Klinik Beau-Site Hirslanden Bern, Switzerland
“It’s a safe and effective tool to teach and guide during a case via the (smart) glasses by showing the important steps using voice, words, pictures, or by pointing on the screen. I used the technology remotely from my office. It enables off-site teaching and gives the feeling of being in the room with the surgeon.”
Dr. Xavier Berard
Professor of Vascular & Endovascular Surgery - Hôpital Pellegrin, CHU de Bordeaux, France
“With (Rods&Cones), you have the possibility to record surgery, and stream it, if needed. It’s a powerful tool for education.”
