Asa reported in E-Health Insider ... Danish research has found that using simulators to train surgeons can make them twice as quick and more precise when operating.

A study carried out by a team at Copenhagen University Hospital to assess the effect of virtual reality training on keyhole surgery showed that surgeons trained using simulators took a median time of 12 minutes to complete the operation.

Those trained using traditional methods, learning by solely working alongside doctors, took a median time of 24 minutes to carry out the same procedure.
