The procedure was over in a matter of minutes. Dr. Cynthia Kahlenberg, a fourth-year medical resident at Hospital for Special Surgery, had done her best to get her bearings in the cavernous operating room. She initially dropped a surgical rod before successfully placing it in the tibia of a sedated patient with a broken leg. But under the bright surgical lamp on the stainless steel table in front of her, there was no patient with a broken leg — only a laptop running the software projected into Kahlenberg's headset.
