“Advances in simulation technology continue to push the field of surgical education forward. Coupling immersive virtual reality (VR) with a physical console allows the incorporation of haptic feedback into a virtual operating room. This more accurately simulates the technical steps of advanced surgical procedures. The Marion K181 PCNL Simulator is a mixed-reality percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL) platform among the first of its kind in surgical education”
