The urinary operation was recorded during the congress and was accompanied by Brazilian and foreign doctors.
Nov 25, Brasilia: The Professor Edgard Santos University Hospital (Hupes / UFBA), linked to the Brazilian Hospital Resources Company (Ebserh), linked to the Ministry of Education, was highlighted at the São Paulo Congress of Urology. During the event, the doctor and coordinator of Endourology and Urinary Litiasis at Hupes, Fábio Sepúlveda, presented the first 360º recorded surgery in Brazil. With the Covid-19 crisis and the restriction in the number of people in the clinical centre, the technique allows health professionals to continue monitoring procedures from various angles, even by video.
The experience brings the freedom to look at the spectators, allowing attention to any detail during the surgery without getting caught in the eye of the responsible specialist. Sepúlveda explains that it took 14 months to develop and improve the Virtual Resident tool, in partnership with a private company from Bahia.

We hope that this technology can further democratize access to medical content about surgical technique. There will be our commitment to improving this tool to make this 360-degree experience even more real ”, says the surgeon.
