Simulated Surgical Systems, LLC Partners to Bring Simulation Advances to Surgical Training
Date:5/27/2010

WILLIAMSVILLE, N.Y., May 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Surgical robotic training will be taken to the next level with the partnership of Simulated Surgical Systems, LLC (SSS) and five world renowned academic centers. Centers include Albany Medical College, Weill Cornell Medical Center, Vattikuti Urology Institute at Henry Ford Health System; University of Medicine & Dentistry at Robert Wood Johnson Medical School and University of Pittsburgh Medical Center. Independent studies will be conducted at these centers to finalize much needed curriculum to help train future surgeons in robotic surgery. SSS will provide technical support to all five centers for studies to be completed by December 2010.

Simulated Surgical Systems developed out of collaboration between the Roswell Park Cancer Institute and University at Buffalo. SSS recently developed the Robotic Surgical Simulator, or RoSS™ — a state-of-the-art training tool that allows surgeons to practice the fundamentals of robotic surgery in a virtual environment.

"We're thrilled to have partnered with these world class institutions to perform beta work and validate a novel training curriculum," said John Burgess, Simulated Surgical Systems President.

"We know what a major role RoSS and its curriculum validation can play in improving quality of surgical training, which is expected to translate into better patient outcomes with robotic surgery," said Khurshid A. Guru, MD, principal and co-founder of Simulated Surgical Systems.

Founded in 2009, Simulated Surgical Systems, LLC (SSS) is a pioneer in the development of robot-assisted surgical simulators. The company is a collaborative effort between the Center for Robotic Surgery at Roswell Park Cancer Institute (RPCI) and the University at Buffalo's School of Engineering and Applied Sciences. SSS has produced one of the world's first simulators that closely approximates the touch and feel of a robotic surgical system. Co-founder Khurshid A. Guru MD is a staff physician in Urology and director of the Center for Robotic Surgery at RPCI and Thenkurussi "Kesh" Kesavadas PhD is the director of the Virtual Reality laboratory and professor of mechanical and aerospace engineering at the University at Buffalo. Moog Inc. is a minority investor in SSS. Additional information is available at www.simulatedsurgicals.com.
