RobotiX Mentor in Dr. Lallas’s Robotic Surgical Skills Program at Thomas Jefferson University Hospitals
“Trainees at Karolinska University Hospital have the opportunity to practice both robotic basic skills and full advanced procedures using the RobotiX Mentor. We are pleased to collaborate with 3D Systems to develop the first simulation training module for the RARP full procedure.
We believe that once this training module is successfully validated, it has the potential to greatly impact robotic training in the future.”
“Virtual reality is revolutionizing the classical concept of learning processes in surgery of observing, trying and performing. The RobotiX system for training in robotic surgery is the ultimate tool showing the efficacy of quickly developing robotic skills without compromising safety of patients.”
“Your simulation products are among the best on the market and are improving all the time . Our surgeons – especially the brand new robotic surgeons/novices were extremely happy with them. As proctors, we are so happy with the product, as surgeon’s learning curves are so much faster and safer!”
“I perform robotic radical prostatectomy twice a week in our hospital. I use the RobotiX Mentor every day to practice urethrovesical anastomosis; this practice has decreased the time for me to complete the anastomosis in the simulation, and in my opinion the Robotix Mentor VR practice improves my OR performance with steadfast confidence.
A good athlete or a good musician does basic training every day to keep his/her skill at the highest level.
Robotic surgeons also need hands-on training on a daily basis.
I am very positive about VR training for Robotic Surgery and expect its future to be even more exciting as technology advances.”
