"I arranged for a Google Hang-Out (HO) between my Glass and a Google account I created ahead of time for this very purpose. The connection is remote. The iPad used as a receiver was just yards away, but it could have been practically thousands of miles away. Before starting the operation, I briefly recorded myself explaining the planned event, and once again, talked about the importance of not revealing any PHI (patient's health information). I had Google Glass on at all times, with the HO active thru-out the procedure. The live video images that I saw thru Glass, were projected in the iPad screen, remotely. We kept the volume down on purpose. We tried to keep it very simple (the KISS principle!) and straight forward. As I said, even the procedure was a simple one. I was able to show not just the patient’s abdomen, but also the endoscopic view, in a very clever, simple and inexpensive way."
Now we need the video feed! :)

Sure does sound like it. But, he might not be in trouble if he did go as far as to make sure none of the patient's information was disclosed, and still followed normal procedure. It's not the first time surgical procedures have been recorded and placed on the web.
Lets see the video,.............
Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone you may still exist, but you have ceased to live.
