Is your surgeon a top gamer?

If not, maybe you should find another doc . . . .

My son was a Halo addict, once ranked in the top 50 worldwide. His gaming addiction is a family battle . . . the redeeming value of gaming few and far between. And now this from the Archives of Surgery (February 2007):

The Impact of Video Games on Training Surgeons in the 21st Century

Abstract conclusion:
Video game skill correlates with laparoscopic surgical skills. Training curricula that include video games may help thin the technical interface between surgeons and screen-mediated applications, such as laparoscopic surgery. Video games may be a practical teaching tool to help train surgeons.
Great . . .
