With the introduction of mandatory medical simulation training in France, we will perform a live intervention on the most advanced arthroscopy simulator that is being integrated into educational curricula across France.
VirtaMed’s ArthroS simulator uses original surgical instruments and photorealistic graphics to provide arthroscopy training for the shoulder, knee, hip and ankle. Using performance-based proficiency assessments, physicians progress through increasingly complex diagnostic and therapeutic cases that are integrated into a full didactic curriculum. This live surgery will begin with a warm up of fine motor skills on the Fundamentals of Arthroscopy Surgery Techniques (FAST) virtual-reality training module, followed by a full diagnostic exploration of a healthy shoulder joint, and an examination of a bankart lesion. The simulator allows Dr. Valenti to demonstrate best practices and related risks.
