We are all now facing an unprecedented health care crisis that is having extensive ramifications for our profession. In particular, we understand the serious impact that the COVID-19 outbreak has had on your robotic surgery practices especially with the postponement or cancellation of elective procedures for the foreseeable future. We also understand how rapidly robotic surgery skills can degrade and how important it is for you to try and maintain those skills during this period of inactivity. To that end, Mimic would like to help our robotic surgery community by offering an opportunity for our partner surgeons and institutions to rent training simulators on a monthly basis at a below market rate. The FlexVR and dV-Trainer simulators can be internet connected to allow data collection to help you monitor your skills retention and also allow for resident training to continue during this extended period of limited actual case volume. If you wish more information, please contact me our team here in Seattle. Stay healthy and hang in there!

Surgeon guided training through webinars and private teleconferencing. Dr. John Lenihan MD, FACOG, CCO, who leads this effort, created the AAGL simulation training standard. John performed his first da Vinci® hysterectomy in 2005 and has leveraged his long Air Force career to successfully apply the aviation model of training, credentialing and privileging to robotic surgery. John brings a wealth of training experience as an Intuitive trainer and a world recognized expert in surgical robotics.
Train in the privacy and comfort of your own home or office. Connect to the MScore Portal to confidentially compare your performance to that of the rest of the world.
Keep robotic training going by rotating FlexVR simulators between residents. Ensure residents are adhering to simulation training curriculums by tracking their progress through Mimic’s MScore Portal.
Safeguard against drops in efficiency and safety when robot assisted surgeries resume. Enable surgeons to check-out a FlexVR system from your hospital so they can maintain their skills by training in their office or home.
