Does video game skills co-relate with surgical prowess? Introduction: This research project seeks to examine if there is any cognition between video game use and surgical skills. Are today’s gamers tomorrow’s surgeons? Taking into account pre acquired surgical skill; can video games help booster performance in the operating rooms essentially reducing surgical risks and failures? This paper will meticulously analyze the gaming process and equate with surgical operations focusing explicitly on the manual dexterity used in the execution of tasks and also on the mental impression that results from these activities. AUDIENCE Primary: The primary audience of this research paper is surgical interns and residents. Practicing surgeons may also be interested in the findings of research. Medical students as well as professionals in the health industry may be drawn by the results of this research. Secondary: The secondary audience of this research paper is professionals and aspiring professionals in the fields of technology as well as those who are fascinated by the medical and surgical field and are also captivated by changing trends in technology, its application and the effects on the medical field. OVERVIEW According to a research conducted by Beth Israel Medical Center: The Impact of Video Games on Training Surgeons in the 21 st Century , they state that “surgeons who had played video games in the past for more than 3hr/wk made 37% fewer errors, were 27% faster, and scored 42% better overall than surgeons who never played video games”. In my research I have established four primary approaches to examining the co-relation of video games to surgical skills. One of these approaches is addressing medical errors and their relation to surgical proficiency; another is about the challenges of performing laparoscopic surgeries that require less cutting and greater skill, while the other is about the use of robotics to perform minimally invasive surgeries and finally a particular look at the games that could an asset to the surgical field. 3
