Posted January 11, 2016

A unique training simulator for orthopedic open surgery (knee reconstruction with total joint replacement) has been developed by OSSim Technologies Inc. in partnership with three University of Montreal orthopedic surgeons: Dr. Marc Isler and Dr. Vincent Massé from Maisonneuve-Rosement Hospital (CIUSS de l’Est-de-l’île-de-Montréal), and Dr. Véronique Godbout from the University of Montreal Hospital Centre (CHUM).

The first orthopedic open surgery simulator, the SIM-KTM, will allow orthopedic trainees to develop their confidence and basic skills in drilling and sawing bones. The SIM-KTM simulator is a great training tool for the medical education community. The technology will be used by the University of Montreal’s Orthopedic Surgery Training Program at Maisonneuve-Rosemont Hospital, which is a major arthroplasty training centre in Quebec.

Benefits for patients
Each year, thousands of patients undergo knee reconstruction surgery (total joint replacement or arthroplasty). For orthopedic surgery residents, the simulations will be a safe, valuable tool that will help reduce their stress while learning their practice. The SIM-KTM simulator will help residents acquire basic psychomotor skills and allow them to concentrate on all aspects of surgery and thus minimize the risk of complications for patients.
