A Highly Effective and Validated Simulator for Core Arthroscopy Skills Acquisition
Simbionix ARTHRO Mentor is an effective tool for arthroscopic surgery skills acquisition. With over 15 years of validation studies, it offers a line of simulated procedures, covering the 3 major joints (shoulder, knee, and hip) combining physical anatomical models with 3D images and dynamic haptic sensation, to allow users to learn key aspects of the procedures while providing tissue sensation.
Enjoy a safe and controlled environment for trainees to gain hands-on experience, with comprehensive and structured programs ideal for both novice and advanced learners and ready-to-use courses for independent training. With detailed feedback on the trainee’s performance, the ARTHRO Mentor simulator is a must-have tool for any arthroscopic surgical training program.

This comparative cross-sectional study contrasts the automated performance reports for novice and expert orthopedic surgeons after executing surgical tasks on the ARTHRO Mentor virtual reality simulator. Setting Surgical simulation center at the University of Chile Clinical Hospital, Santiago, Chile. ARTHRO Mentor simulator for knee arthroscopy showed good construct validity, with performance metrics accurately discriminating between expert and novice users.
The results of this study demonstrate learning curves for a hip arthroscopy simulator, with significant improvements seen after three sessions. All performance metrics were found to improved, demonstrating sufcient visuo-haptic consistency within the virtual environment, enabling individuals to develop basic arthroscopic skills.
