One of the most exciting things about surgery, is that it is ever changing. Each year new medical devices come into the market that simply changes the way we perform a procedure. It’s a dynamic environment that forces surgeons and their teams to be nimble. With the worldwide pandemic, everything we once knew about training has been forced to change.
The military is at the forefront of cutting-edge technology and methodology, from virtual reality simulation to highly strategized training regimens. Medical training and education often borrow best practices from the innovations within the military, and our experts at the Nicholson Center are continuously modeling our methods after what’s been tried and true.
The amount of procedures performed through robotic surgery has grown exponentially, progressing at least 10 percent each year. As the industry grows, concern for patient safety grows with it and an overall question arises: How can we ensure surgeons are receiving the best possible training to operate this technology?
At the Nicholson Center, we have created a multi-faceted curriculum purely dedicated to serving as a national standard for robotic training. However, while curriculums provide the knowledge and know-how in robotic surgery, the need for simulation labs is critical for hands-on robotic surgery training. Below are some of the benefits of robotic simulation:
