Surgical treatment of gastroparesis with gastric pacing has shown some promise, but when this option fails, subtotal gastrectomy is often the end result. Evidence evaluating the efficacy of this is weak. Sleeve… Continue Reading »

The ProMIS hand-assisted laparoscopic colectomy (HALC) simulator uses a combination of virtual reality (VR) and and physical models of intra-abdominal organs to simulate a left-sided hemicolectomy. It can be used to train surgeons to… Continue Reading »
