RobotiX Mentor in Dr. Lallas’s Robotic Surgical Skills Program at Thomas Jefferson University Hospitals

“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.”

“The Simbionix RobotiX mimics the Davinci robot assisted console at with a similar system setup, however, it had the advantage to practice outside the operating theatre. We located the simulator near the offices, to make it easy accessible to train during or after working hours. The Mentor learn software of the RobotiX is user friendly, contains a wide range of tasks/procedures and allows for easy performance tracking with the ability to customize your own curricula. The RobotiX is a valuable tool to train robotic surgery outside the clinical setting.”
