LaparoS™ General Surgery

  • Practice patient positioning, trocar placement and team training
  • Motivational general surgery training derived from validated concepts
  • Situs inversus patient cases for efficient bimanual skills training

Risk-Free Setup for Patient Positioning, Trocar Placement and Team Training

  • Correctly position your patient by tilting them into reverse-Trendelenburg and more position variants

  • Freely place trocars across the patient model and practice decision making for this crucial step according to the procedure requirements

  • Experience operating side by side and coordinating each movement as a team in a realistic setup

Motivational General Surgery Simulation Training

  • Reach proficiency levels by training in short sequences derived from cholecystectomy, appendectomy and incisional hernia

  • Master diagnostic laparoscopy, exposure of structures, clipping and cutting, resection, adhesiolysis, bleeding control, complication handling and critical anatomical variations

  • Adapt the training to your needs and experience by choosing between guided or unguided case variants, practicing with or without a retraction assistant and more

Laparoscopic Simulation Based on Validated Concepts

LaparoS™ is based on validated studies which demonstrate simulation as a valuable training and assessment tool in laparoscopy, complemented by long-term cooperation with a group of leading laparoscopic surgeons in Switzerland and internal expertise from Dr. Martina Vitz, the co-author of several studies leading VirtaMed’s Training & Education team.

VR is more likely to be successful if it is systematically integrated into a well-though-out education and training program which objectively assesses technical skills improvements proximate to learning experience.
