Information cues available in laparoscopy and other forms of minimally invasive surgery are impoverished relative to cues available in open surgery. Acquiring surgical skill in such an environment is extremely challenging. Even after mastery, continued practice can lead to problems for the surgeon as indicated by frequent incidence of pain and injury associated with laparoscopy. The long-term impact on the surgeon performing these procedures is largely unknown.
Researching how to better use technology to help surgeons perform surgery is an integral part of the REVEAL project at the Vis Center.
