Surgical simulation is particularly attractive because it avoids practicing skills in patients, allowing trainees to learn such skills in a safe, controlled, and standardized environment. We designed a novel robotic surgical simulator that allows the simulation of entire surgical procedures. We believe that this model can avoid the use of live animals for robotic surgical training, offering realistic simulation without high expenses and ethical concerns.
