The learning curve of novice surgeons takes about 25 surgeries to be proficient at the knee replacement procedure. So it is not just enough if we design efficient and more ergonomic surgical tools, it is also important to provide a learning platform for them to get better before they operate on a real patient. Although many training simulators...
