Designed by Surgeons, for Surgeons, to Teach Surgeons.
Blending the latest surgical expertise, realistic organ design and special effects, Strategic Operations Inc. assists surgeons by providing an innovative, high-fidelity open-surgical simulator called the “Advanced Surgical Skills Package (ASSP) / Cut Suit,” which can realistically replicate traumatic organ injury and bleeding.
ASSPs replicate various trauma and
pathology scenarios, so realistic that participants willingly suspend
their disbelief that they are not working on a real person. And unlike
performing surgery on a real person, time out can be taken for
instruction and education, and then restarted.
Besides improving individual surgical skills and decision making, the Cut Suit simulator enhances surgical team training just as flight simulators enhance Crew Resource Management in the airline industry.
Since the end of the "see one, do one, teach one" era of the "Halstead method," physicians in training have had significantly less hands-on experience in which they have been allowed to make decisions and be responsible for the consequences of those decisions. The Cut Suit & ASSP allows for that experience.
