Video Games and Surgery?

Updated: Oct 19, 2023

Surprisingly, surgeons who play #Video Games are better in their tests and tasks (and performing surgeries) than #doctors who do not play at all.

Video Games and Surgery?

As weird as it may sound, Beth Israel Medical Center in New York recently conducted a study with 33 surgeons. The surgeons took a surgical skills test in Laparoscopy that lasted almost two days. In the study, researchers tracked performance in the skills test on an individual level. They then recorded each surgeon’s habits in relation to playing video games. Nine of 33 surgeons played an average of three hours of games per week. 🕹They outscored surgeons that never played video games in various categories. For instance, they committed 37 percent fewer errors and completed the test 27 percent faster. 🩻 The study concluded a strong correlation exists between surgical skill, efficient decision making, and Laparoscopy performance.
