The First Successful Breast Surgery in the Metaverse.

Dr Pedro Gouveia, Surgeon of the Breast Unit of the Champalimaud Clinical Centre in Lisbon, performed the first successful breast cancer operation in the Metaverse. While he and the patient were in the operating theatre at the Champalimaud Foundation in Portugal, his colleague was intervening and supervising from the University of Zaragoza in Spain - 900 kilometres away.

But there is more to this story than the wonders of the Metaverse.

The technology used by Dr Gouveia and his colleagues means that the entire process - tumour identification, diagnosis, surgery and treatment - dramatically reduces the risks and trauma to patients. This extraordinary pioneering undertaking has won Pedro Gouveia, the “Best and Greatest Portuguese Technology award.”
