Mimic Technologies’ consulting training subsidiary signed an agreement with HealthTrust to become a new supplier of robotic surgery simulation training products and robotic surgery training consulting services. Mimic Medical Education and Development (MimicMED), provides guidance in successfully implementing best practices to help fully develop new and existing robotic surgery training programs that can help to better train robotic surgeons, minimize costs and risks, and maximize an institution’s investment in robotic surgery.

HealthTrust says with studies showing nearly 50% of robotic surgery costs tied to technical skills of surgeons and their teams and robotic surgery accounting for a growing portion of minimally invasive surgery, it recognizes the importance and need for training in robotic surgery.
