Development of a Five-Day Basic Microsurgery Simulation Training Course: A Cost Analysis The widespread use of microsurgery in numerous surgical fields has increased the need for basic microsurgical training outside of the operating room. The traditional start of microsurgical training has been in undertaking a 5-day basic microsurgery course. In an era characterised by financial […]
The SynDaver Synthetic Human made the first of many to come, appearances on NBC’s Crossbones Friday, May 31.
Surgical technology instructors along with a practicing surgeon are able to use the SSH in our state of the art simulated operating room, to mimic real surgical cases in a step by step fashion, to greatly enhance student learning. This allows students to completely prepare for and assist with surgeries as they would realistically progress, […]
