FUNDAMENTAL SURGERY ANNOUNCES LEADING MAYO CLINIC SURGEON JOINS THE GLOBAL MEDICAL PANEL

In his new role, Dr. Farley will be an integral team member in the development of Fundamental Surgery’s general surgery simulations and will play a large part in FundamentalVR’s global mission to democratize surgical simulations and training, allowing it to be easily accessible to every surgeon in the world for the wider benefit of society.

Listed by Time magazine as one of their “Best inventions of 2018,” Fundamental Surgery is a first-of-its-kind SaaS platform that combines virtual reality (VR) with cutting-edge haptics and leading educational practice to create a low-cost and scalable surgical education and rehearsal experience for trainee and qualified surgeons. Fundamental Surgery creates an environment that allows users to experience and navigate the same visuals, sounds and feelings they would during a real surgical procedure. Simulations can be downloaded for as little as $9,000 a year for unlimited users, with surgical program managers able to access an online dashboard of all of their trainees’ performance.

The new appointment comes after FundamentalVR announced a three-year strategic collaboration and joint development agreement with Mayo Clinic, the US leading academic medical center, which will see both companies jointly develop market-leading surgical VR simulation and education products.

SURGICAL SIMULATION: THE HAPTIC ADVANTAGE

In the operating room, you don’t often get a do-over. Every moment is vital and mistakes, while rare, can be costly. That’s what makes training new surgeons so difficult. Surgeons might practice on plastic bones, but they have an entirely different feel to human ones. Cadavers, while more realistic, can cost up to $10,000 for acquisition, storage, and maintenance.

What we cannot do in the real world, however, can be achieved in the virtual one. That’s the mission of FundamentalVR, a London-based company that uses virtual reality headsets and haptic controls to help train young doctors, gather data, and possibly change how the entire medical profession teaches surgery.
