Dr. Ghassan Abu Sittah, and for the first time in Lebanon and the region, led an operation which will change the delivery of healthcare around the world, via an online interactive platform known as Proximie. The first-of-its-kind augmented reality operation aided a surgeon in Gaza to reconstruct the hand of a child suffering from a congenital birth defect. Dr. Abu Sittah commented on the prominence of such a procedure, “What is important about this novel augmented reality operation is that the surgeon will be able to insert his hand in surgical instruments in the visual reality to guide other surgeons. It is with such a revolutionary technology that AUBMC will further prove itself as a beacon of hope in medical education in Lebanon and the region. By sharing our expertise and delivering excellent patient care to less fortunate medical centers that are in dire need for advanced technologies, we will be able to propel healthcare to unprecedented levels.”
