Simbionix LAP Mentor
The University of Miami-Regional Campus Surgery Program has more exciting news. Our facility has obtained a "dual console" DaVinci robot. The dual console allows residents and faculty surgeons to perform robotic operations together. In addition we just received funding for purchase of the Simbionix LAP Mentor. This is the Mercedes of lap simulators including individual operations (not just "tasks") and haptec touch feedback. These two acquisitions will further enhance our resident training.
