HEART SURGERY RESIDENTS READY TO SAVE REAL LIVES AFTER ‘OUT OF BODY’ TRAINING EXPERIENCE
INTUITIVE SURGICAL CHOOSES KINDHEART FOR ROBOTIC LOBECTOMIES
Largest, Most Comprehensive Study of Simulated Surgery Shows Practice May Help Improve Patient Outcomes
CHICAGO (August 25, 2016) — Simulation training for surgery residents builds confidence and could have a life-saving impact on patients undergoing cardiac surgery, according to two studies published online today in The Annals of Thoracic Surgery.
“Simulation training should create better surgeons who are trained much more efficiently,” said Richard H. Feins, MD, from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, who led one of the studies. “This type of learning allows surgery residents to develop their knowledge, skills, and confidence, before going into the operating room, thus protecting patients from unnecessary risks.”
STS UNIVERSITY SELECTS KINDHEART FOR CARDIAC SURGERIES
SAN DIEGO (January 2015) - Intuitive Surgical has contracted with KindHeart to provide the KindHeart Robotic Surgery Simulator (RSS) to demonstrate robotic surgery at the 2015 Society of Thoracic Surgeons 51st Annual Meeting in San Diego from January 24-28.
Three cardiothoracic surgeons will perform separate robotic surgeries on the KindHeart Robotic Surgery Simulator (RSS) in the Intuitive Booth at the STS Conference throughout the day on Monday, January 26th.
San Diego (January 2015) - The Society of Thoracic Surgeons (STS) has contracted with KindHeart to provide KindHeart Cardiac Surgery Simulators (CSS) for the STS University cardiac surgical training program.
KindHeart will supply the simulators at the 2015 Society of Thoracic Surgeons 51st Annual Meeting in San Diego from January 24-28.
