According to the Manila Bulletin Online, the Philippines first virtual operating room webcast was a success. "What made this significant is that Webcast technology was not used for a marketing pitch. Rather to present an actual man on the street scenario of a 31-year-old male diagnosed with parotid cancer and how a team of surgeons surgically managed the problem."
