Surgeons should play video games!!


A research done in New York University Medical Center suggests that video game play contributes to performance excellence in laparoscopic surgery.
Training benefits for surgeons who play video games should be quantifiable.
This research has been applied to 33 surgeons who played Top Gun game and this was the result:
Past video game play in excess of 3 h/wk correlated with 37% fewer errors (P<.02) and 27% faster completion (P<.03).
Overall Top Gun score (time and errors) was 33% better (P<.005) for video game players and 42% better (P<.01) if they played more than 3 h/wk.
Current video game players made 32% fewer errors (P=.04), performed 24% faster (P<.04), and scored 26% better overall (time and errors) (P<.005) than their nonplaying colleagues.
When comparing demonstrated video gaming skills, those in the top tertile made 47% fewer errors, performed 39% faster, and scored 41% better (P<.001 for all) on the overall Top Gun score.
Regression analysis also indicated that video game skill and past video game experience are significant predictors of demonstrated laparoscopic skills.
