First introduction of canine laparoscopy curriculum

Prof. Boel Fransson from Washington State University worked with us to develop the first canine laparoscopic curriculum for the LAP Mentor Express simulator. This virtual reality simulation-based curriculum for canine laparoscopic cholecystectomy, presented at ACVS veterinary meeting, will become available in the near future.

“We haven’t had this sort of technology — it’s a game changer,” Fransson said.

“The beauty with these systems is they give you an opportunity to make mistakes, and you will make mistakes when you first learn, but we don’t want those mistakes to happen in a live animal.”
