Surgical Simulations

Robert Amajoyi, MD FACS, FICS, FASCRS

Dear Applicants,

Surgical Simulations are now an integral part of General Surgery training. At South Nassau Communities Hospital, we provide one of the most robust simulation experiences at our South Nassau Simulation Center and at our offsite Fusion cadaver center.

At Fusion, the residents operate on abundant human cadavers simulating real-time laparoscopic and open, minor and major operations across all subspecialties with real operating room instruments, laparoscopic towers, energy and stapling devices provided by our industry partners. The operations are proctored by an attending surgeon. This relaxed environment has been the most exciting and rewarding to our residents.

In addition to our cadaveric simulation curriculum, we have curriculums for the required Fundamentals of Laparoscopic Surgery (FLS) and Fundamentals of Endoscopic Surgery (FES). Both take place at the on-campus South Nassau Simulation Center, which is also available to the residents off-hours.

We also have a curriculum for Robotic Surgery, which will certify and allow our graduating residents perform robotic surgery upon graduation. We are proud to be one of the 5% of residency programs with the robotic education curriculum in the USA.

Our simulations provide a relaxed, fun, unhurried environment to practice over and over, until you get it right.

I would be happy to discuss our simulation curriculum with you. For questions, please contact our residency coordinator.

Sincerely,

Robert Amajoyi, MD FACS, FICS, FASCRS
Director of Simulations
Associate Program Director, General Surgery Residency Program
