Simbionix and the Laparoscopic Surgical Skills Foundation (LSS) signed a collaboration agreement that is supported by Europe's most prestigious society in the laparoscopic discipline, The European Association for Endoscopic Surgery (EAES).  Training materials and assessment tools for the European Laparoscopic Skills Curriculum will be the result of this initiative.

Recent safety and surgical quality performance reports from the World Health Organization and others stress the urgent need for the improvement of training, assessment, and accreditation for technology-dependent surgical procedures such as laparoscopy. LSS is an initiative by the European Association for Endoscopic Surgery (EAES) to provide a standard to (re)credential surgeons to perform laparoscopic surgery effectively and safely. LSS goes beyond the basic skills and focuses on safeguarding the quality of performance in laparoscopic procedures.

This agreement is a continuation of successful two-year collaboration during which the LSS program has been operating in training centers across Europe.  This incorporates the Simbionix LAP Mentor in the process of defining and validating the criterion-based assessment tool and clinical assessment of index procedures performance.

Professor Jakimowicz, MD, PhD, FRCS Ed said, "This agreement shows the benefit of industry and professional society collaboration. The structure of the training, applicability of the course content in practice and the proportion of theory and hands-on training are rated positively by the trainees."  Prof. Jakimowicz added, "The LSS program appeals to both residents in training and already accredited surgeons. International participation indicates that the LSS program has the potential to become a future European standard in surgical education in laparoscopic surgery. "

Ran Bronstein, President of Simbionix, expressed excitement about the agreement: "As a leading provider of medical simulators and online medical education, Simbionix understands the importance of providing access to standardized training. This collaboration, by leveraging the clinical knowledge and experience of the EAES and the innovative technologies of Simbionix, will set a new standard for laparoscopic skills training in Europe."
