Dr. Vivek Tandon told that in earlier times, there was only one way to teach students about surgery, that the students would learn surgery by standing with the teacher and then when they learned, they would do small surgeries and then slowly study further. Which took a very long time. But with the help of these simulators, it is becoming easier to teach the nuances related to surgery to the students. Through these, he is able to learn to perform surgery without working on the patient.

This is how it started

Dr Tandon said that during Covid he felt the need to have such a system. There are many students, hence not everyone is getting the opportunity at the right time. In such a situation, he along with a team of students and doctors created simulators. First worked on them myself and corrected the errors and then gave an opportunity to the students to learn.

The doctor further told that he has different designed simulators to learn different processes. There are different simulators for suturing practice, endoscopy or spine endoscopy, ultrasonography. These are models, through which different procedures can be practiced. Another advantage of this is that the teachers explain their mistakes to the students, in such a situation, they can avoid making mistakes when they actually perform surgery on a patient.
