Minimally invasive surgery (MIS) is an operating technique using long instruments inserted via small incisions in the skin. Because of the interposition of these instruments, haptic feedback is limited to force feedback to the human hand. Extensive training is needed to master this difficult surgical method. Traditionally, surgical training is obtained in… CONTINUE READING
