Virtual Endoscopic Simulation and Skills Acquisition Lab at Kasr AlAini
Inaugurated in 2020
The first Institutional fully integrated surgical endoscopic simulation center in Egypt.
Laparoscopic training is about hand-eye coordination. It is unacceptable for surgical trainees to practice basic surgical and laparoscopic skills in the operating room, exposing patients to potential risk.
Virtual reality (VR) simulation has become an increasingly important part of technical skills acquisition in laparoscopic and hysteroscopic surgery. It is a safe, ethical, and repeatable alternative; it produces objective measurements of performance. Manual practice on models and practice on tissue compliments the virtual modality.
Paradigm Shift in Training
Our Lab has caused a paradigm shift in training.
At VESSALKA all the instructors and lecturers are experienced staff at Kasr Al Aini’s department of Ob&Gyn. Our aim is to educate and produce high quality minimally invasive surgeons. Although it was initially meant for our staff, we will also be training surgeons from other departments and from outside our University. All due to the generosity of our donors who allowed us to procure the highest quality equipment.
