UTMB has one of the nation’s leading robotic surgery departments.
We are on the cutting edge of developing robotic surgical and training programs.
While devising and implementing these programs, a group of surgeons, led by Dr. Kilic, wanted to know the developmental video gaming may have on future surgeons.
So, they created a study that compared the performance of high school and college students with residents from the robotic surgery program on UTMB’s robotic training simulator.
