Where Is the Best Place To Do Robotic Surgical Simulation & Training?

Simulation is increasingly recognized as being an important component when learning how to drive a surgical robot. However, very little discussion has been held about where the best place is to learn and does the location of the simulator make a difference in its utilization. Essentially there are three places where simulation can be used…

Better Teamwork Leads to Better Outcomes in the OR

Surgery has often been referred to as a team sport. The role of the surgeon is undoubtedly critical but so is the role of the entire team in ensuring patient safety and positive outcomes. This is especially true in robotic surgery where the main surgeon is no longer at the patient’s side but is seated…
