Laparoscopic surgery is one of the significant media advancements that has enabled day surgeries for quick recovery. This has evolved laparoscopic as a solution for a wide range of conditions that require surgeries in the abdominal cavity including cholecystectomy (removal of gall bladder), appendectomy (removal of the appendix), advanced procedures for hernia repair, and also gynecological procedures.

Laparoscopic procedures are mostly preferred by the patients and the doctors as they help in keeping the blood loss minimal, less scarring, speedy recovery, and shorter hospital stay.

Since most of the procedures are complex, simulation offers a way to master new skill sets, by training in the simulation centers. A Laparoscopic Simulator is a minimally-invasive surgical simulation training tool intended for learners and medical professionals alike.

Laparoscopic training simulators are tools that can be used in training scenarios focused on laparoscopic surgery, as they demonstrate virtually all major abdominal surgical procedures. With Laparoscopic Surgery Simulators, learners can begin to familiarize themselves with the performance methodologies.

The endo-laparoscopy simulators are equipped with up-to-date technology to help learners become confident and adept at hand-eye coordination and equipment dexterity. Basic and advanced procedures in laparoscopy can be learned and updated using high-tech instruments, using real-time feedback, and analytics. The initial courses of Lap. Hernia Masterclass will encompass commonly performed hernia procedures.

Speaking on the partnership, Dr. Ashok Moharana, Chief Medical Officer at Healthium Medtech, said, “We are delighted to partner with Apollo Simulation Centre (ASC)on this exemplary skill development initiative of training young aspiring medical professionals in critical laparoscopic surgical modalities. At Healthium, we believe in continuing medical education. Through this immersive masterclass, which includes a variety of training techniques, we look forward to aspiring young surgeons gaining expertise in the area of laparoscopic surgery and developing their confidence in simulated clinical settings. We are happy to collaborate on this comprehensive training in the state-of-the-art settings provided by ASC.”

Further Commenting on the development, Dr. Muralidharan. M, Vice President, Apollo Knowledge & Director Medical Education, Southern Region, Apollo Hospitals, added, “The course curriculum is carefully designed to upgrade the knowledge through online lectures, hands-on training on dry and harvested wet models, live surgeries, and panel discussions.”
