A cirurgia laparoscópica se vale de procedimentos minimamente invasivos - o que significa menos dor e um período menor de recuperação para os pacientes. Mas Steven Schwaitzberg encontrou dois problemas ao ensinar essa técnica para cirurgiões ao redor do mundo: a linguagem e a distância. Ele mostra como uma nova tecnologia, que combina videoconferências e um tradutor universal em tempo real, poderia ajudar. (Filmado no TEDxBeaconStreet.)
