Neurosurgery Simulation Core at Mount Sinai

The Neurosurgery Simulation Core program is an outgrowth of the Brain Surgery Virtual Reality Simulation Program, created in the Department of Neurosurgery at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in 2012 following the success of our initial research programs using tactile (haptic) feedback neurosurgical simulators and advanced intraoperative 3D visualizations. The program grew quickly to include students, residents, attending neurosurgeons, and researchers, all of whom are motivated by our ultimate goal: to improve outcomes and reduce complications in patients undergoing brain surgery by leveraging the potential of novel surgical training, pre-, and intraoperative simulation and visualization technologies.
