​Telementoring in surgery is used when an experienced surgeon assists or directs another less experienced surgeon who is operating at a distance in another part of the world. The images viewed by the operating surgeon can easily be transmitted to a central "telesurgical mentor," and permit an intraoperative interaction. The goal of this application of telemedicine is to improve surgical education and training, expand patient care and improve health care delivery by allowing access to surgical specialists.
