The Challenge

Due to the increased awareness of the safety and rights of patients, quickly evolving technology, and the standardization of health care provision worldwide, a 3-phase approach for the training of surgical techniques has been widely established to include the following:

  1. Cognitive, theoretical phase.
  2. Simulation phase to acquire proficiency in targeted surgical abilities and confidence with new technology.
  3. Operating theater where pre-defined modular steps of the surgery are performed according to levels of difficulty.

The Fundacio Puigvert saw the need for virtual reality simulation in their residency and postgraduate training programs. They decided to establish a virtual reality simulation lab to include endourological, laparoscopic, and robotic platforms

The Customer

Fundacio Puigvert (Puigvert Foundation)

About The Customer

Fundacio Puigvert (Puigvert Foundation) is one of Europe’s leading centers for the provision of specialized medical care in Urology, Nephrology, and Andrology. Its highly trained and prestigious medical staff has extensive experience, working in comprehensive, multi-disciplinary teams.

The Solution

The Fundacio Puigvert purchased 3D Systems’ Simbionix URO Mentor, LAP Mentor, and RobotiX Mentor simulators for hands-on practice of basic skills and advanced procedures. A team of three consultants of the Fundació Puigvert was set up in order to mentor the trainees with established curricula in endourological, laparoscopic, and robotic surgery, propaedeutic to any activity in operating theaters.

The RobotiX Mentor became an integral part of their undergraduate and residency programs to master robotic surgical techniques.

Operational Impact

  • It's wide variety of simulation modules allow for the progressive acquisition of skills, confidence and proficiency needed to perform in the operating room.
