High Fidelity Surgical Training

This is an excellent example of high fidelity simulation of a difficult surgical procedure.
As one surgeon in the video says it is now unacceptable for a surgeon to go through a learning curve whilst operating on patients. A smart device like this not only recreates the procedure but cleverly, is able to give feedback to the surgeon.
Much more of this is required. Surgeons are clever and resourceful. Colleges of surgeons should be encouraging and incentivising young surgeons to do what this clever chap from Holland has achieved.
