Validation!

Posted in play by Greg on the February 22nd, 2007

This article basically says that surgeons that play video games are better at surgery.  It has inspired me to send my resume to hospitals to work as a specialist.  I’ll just come in, do the laparoscopic camera thing, get paid, and get out.  Minimal knowledge necessary, just superior hand-eye coordination in abstract environments represented on a video screen. Any takers?

    I’m sorry, Greg, I don’t want you to do surgery on me anytime soon.

    Oh man, good thing my husband will never see this page. He’d be all up in my face. Phew! ;)

    Dude, my spleen has been KILLING me. At least, I think it’s my spleen. Or maybe it’s one of my livers. It’s one of those things floating around in there. I’d love it if you just blasted that sucka outta there.

    It’s an interesting article. So, in other words, somehow my ability to totally kick ass in computer golf has facilitated my ability to do premium circumcisions. That is pretty cool.

    on all my surgical rotations in med school, the residents would all play video games, mostly the violent fighting ones. i still think that the coordination comes from practice, and that they just say that their abilities are improved by the video games, because then they can justify playing them at work.

    Yes, dear, you’re right. No need for “knowledge” to get in the way. Driving the laproscope is a breeze – it’s ok if you cut a nerve or artery instead of an adhesion because they look pretty similar and are in the same general area. I’m sure killing pretend aliens and doing remote microsurgery while ordering OR staff around both use the same brain areas that govern daring(cockiness) and imagination and the need to be in charge and kick ass, so it would make sense that these surgeons would be attracted to both. Then again, I think even the surgeons that said they don’t play the video games are just not willing to admit that they’re 47 and still slave to their Playstation.
