El Camino doctors test out ‘mobile operating room’ on truck
The Mercury News

El Camino Hospital doctors stepped out of their offices and operating rooms Monday and onto an 85-foot semi truck, where they tested out new surgical procedures and equipment. In the “mobile operating room,” surgeons and OB-GYNS were offered training sessions in “Single Incision Laparocopic Surgery.” The surgical technique allows doctors to do abdominal surgeries, such as gall bladder removals or hysterectomies, using only one entry point — usually the belly button.
