Cutting-edge medical training is alive and well in Las Vegas with a recent visit from a Stryker Mobile Operating Room Experience (M.O.R.E.) cadaver training lab. On March 2-4, all Valley Hospital Medical Center orthopedic surgery residents participated in the training experience in conjunction with the UMC Orthopedic program.
The M.O.R.E. trailer was created by Stryker, one of the world’s leading medical technology companies offering an array of innovative products in Orthopedics, Medical and Surgical, Neurotechnology and Spine, which help improve patient and hospital outcomes. The trailer travels around the country to educate and train surgeons on specific surgical techniques and the latest technology.
The M.O.R.E. trailer spans 1200 square feet and includes eight fully equipped stations. It has the capacity to educate up to 32 professionals at a single time and is outfitted with a wide range of surgical power tools, remote cameras, surgical lights and more.
According to Steven Nishiyama, senior orthopedic resident at Valley Hospital, the purpose of the visit
was to provide our residents with a direct “hands-on” experience with cadavers and surgical dissection education. “The M.O.R.E. lab brings a real-life, interactive educational experience to medical communities all over the country without the burden of travel,” said Nishiyama. “This highly innovative classroom on wheels allows our residents to explore the complexity of human anatomy while receiving critical training on the latest technologies in orthopedic trauma surgery.”
Valley Hospital Medical Center’s Orthopedic Surgery Residency Program was one of the first orthopedic surgery residency training programs in the country to participate in the Stryker M.O.R.E. Lab training.
