What Do Healthcare Professionals Say About Our Simulators?
Filter By Simulator
“I think that arthroscopy really lends itself to simulation and with the Surgical Science simulator there’s tactile feedback that really gives the resident or the trainee a good sense of what it’s like to be in the knee or in the shoulder.”Bradley Dunlap, MD Clinical Assistant Professor, NorthShore Medical Group, Chicago
“The ARTHRO Mentor is the wave of the future. It allows us to give our residents a tool that can train them in those types of arthroscopic skills that they really can’t get other than actually using the arthroscope. We’ve done a study demonstrating that the skills that they gain in using the ARTHRO Mentor are transferable to the operating room. In addition to training our residents and giving them a tool to improve their basic arthroscopic skills, the ARTHRO Mentor is also a wonderful way to evaluate their progress as they move from first, to second, to third year. We found that the ARTHRO Mentor is user-friendly, and we keep it in our resident’s on-call room, so they can simply turn on the computer and pick up the instruments and start to practice. We have tests for them to go through and different levels for them to achieve on the ARTHRO Mentor and you certainly can tell the difference between the residents who’ve been on the ARTHRO Mentor and those that haven’t. We make it a prerequisite that they first train on the ARTHRO Mentor before they start operating on live patients in the operating room.”Sherwin Ho, MD Associate Professor and Director, Sports Medicine Fellowship, University of Chicago
“I want to go on record as recommending the ARTHRO Mentor virtual reality simulator for shoulder arthroscopy for any training institution that plans to maximize the opportunity to train surgeons in this difficult task”.Stephen J. Snyder, MD Southern California Orthopedic Institute
“We found that residents beginning the five year residency program didn’t have the necessary skills to succeed in the operating room as it pertained to arthroscopy. They didn’t know how to hold the instrumentation nor operate with the arthroscope. Although they had the theoretical knowledge of the anatomy and different surgical approaches, when it came to performing arthroscopy of the shoulder, hip, and knee, they lacked a basic comfort level with the instrumentation and spatial orientation to perform these procedures.”Mathew Sardelli, MD Orthopedic Surgeon specializing in Sports Medicine, McLaren Flint, Michigan
“The ARTHRO Mentor virtual reality arthroscopic simulator is the most advanced virtual reality simulator system for teaching and training arthroscopy surgery”.Ofer Levy BESS (British Elblow and Shoulder Society) Education Committee
“It certainly has proven to be the most realistic simulator I have found on the market thus far”.Lennard Funk, MD Consultant Shoulder & Upper Limb Surgeon, Manchester Sports Medicine Clinic and Wrightington Hospital, Manchester, UK
