Recent strides have been made to limit surgical mishaps through proper training, and most recently this training has moved to a virtual medium. A Wired article reports that many surgeons, like pilots, are now using simulators to help hone their skills prior to grabbing a scalpel, whereas previously the majority of their practice would be on cadavers, which are limited, or just by observation, which means the first time that they cut, they cut you. The simulators are advanced enough to give touch feedback, e.g. pressure needed to penetrate tissues, and simulate individual patients.
A study of surgeons using these simulators after playing Wii, specifically games like Marble Mania which require precise dexterity, performed 48% better than the non-gaming control.
