Seeger Surgical Simulation Center

Services

The Seeger Surgical Simulation Center provides services to all of the Baylor Scott & White Health staff. The trainings are unlimited as long as we have the right equipment. General Surgery residents are provided with 24-7 access, allowing practice of techniques from basic suturing and knot-tying techniques to laparoscopic procedures.

 

We also assist Texas A&M Health Science Center College of Medicine students with their simulation curricula, which includes diverse simulation activities in surgery, family medicine, internal medicine, pediatrics, emergency medicine, obstetrics and gynecology. A scenario-based mock-code training is very popular among the internal medicine residency program and the hospital’s nursing staff.

 

The center also has the capability for practicing many critical skills, including:

  • Knee/shoulder arthrography
  • Angiography vascular approach
  • Endoscopy
  • Bronchoscopy
  • Central line insertion
  • Thoracentesis/Paracentesis procedure
  • Lumbar puncture
  • Arterial line placement

 

 

Facility

The center is located on the first floor of Roberts Hospital at Baylor University Medical Center at Dallas. The facility consists of 850 square feet with five Fundamentals of Laparoscopic Surgery (FLS) testing stations.

 

Several virtual reality (VR) based simulators are also available, including:

  • Lap Mentor® for laparoscopic procedures
  • Angio Mentor® for intra-vascular procedures
  • GI-broch Mentor® for GI endoscopy (upper and lower, including ERCP) and bronchoscopy procedures (including EBUS)
  • ArthroSim (Arthroscopic procedures)

 

In addition to VR simulators, we have SimMan 3G® for scenario-based simulations and Noelle® for obstetric simulations.

 

The center is well equipped with varied task trainers such as intubation, IV/arterial simulation arm, lumbar puncture, central line, thoracentesis, paracentesis and biopsy, etc.

 

 

Users

The current users of the Seeger Surgical Simulation Center are the General Surgery Residency Education Program at Baylor University Medical Center, other residency and fellowship programs (IM, orthopedics, OB/GYN, vascular surgery, PCCM, periodontal, dental, etc.) and third- and fourth-year medical students from Texas A&M Health Science Center.

 

It is also actively used by anesthesia nursing, clinical nurse specialists and dietitians at the hospital, as well as community physicians that test on Fundamentals of Laparoscopic Surgery (FLS), Fundamentals of Endoscopic Surgery (FES) and Fundamentals Use of Surgical Energy (FUSE).
