Status Quo

Minimally invasive surgery is the present and future of surgical interventions, and the development of practical skills in this area requires a premature initiation. To diminish the laparoscopic learning curve, to reduce human errors and protect hospital equipment, beginners in laparoscopy can develop their standard abilities using medical simulation.


Using medical simulation through virtual reality with advanced technology is one of the best ways to develop these standard abilities to beginners like doctors in various surgical specialties.

The aim is to teach and evaluate the knowledge and abilities that a surgeon requires in order to effectively and safely perform a laparoscopic cholecystectomy, laparoscopic appendectomy, and a diagnostic laparoscopy.

Courses are built around hands-on training on simulators and interactive discussions of experts.


Training on the simulator

Much of the course is devoted to deliberate and repetitive training of basic and procedural laparoscopic skills on simulators.

The performance parameters provided by the simulators during the training provide the participants and the trainers with direct feedback on stage achievements. Within the course program described, participants can adapt their training to individual needs and training style.
