Surgical simulation offers a solution to the problems of reduced training time and surgical exposure by allowing trainees to develop surgical skills outside of the operating room in a safe, cost-effective environment. We developed a highly detailed, procedure-specific shoulder arthroscopy simulator using 3-dimesional printing with the aim of providing greater access to cost-effective simulation support to trainees.
