GIBLIB gathered surgeons from various fields including transplant, cardiac, general surgery, colorectal and urology to make the streaming possible. The company wants to partner with additional influential surgeons and top academic institutions around the world who are interested in streaming a live surgery in 360 degree virtual reality to a global audience, said Dr. Towfigh.
