A universal translator for surgeons
Steven Schwaitzberg   Jan 25, 2013   TED  

Laparoscopic surgery uses minimally invasive incisions—which means less pain and shorter recovery times for patients. But Steven Schwaitzberg has run into two problems teaching these techniques to surgeons around the world—language and distance. He shares how a new technology, which combines video conferencing and a real-time universal translator, could help. (Filmed at TEDxBeaconStreet.)
