Advancements in robotic technology have influenced the way surgeons are performing knee and hip joint arthroplasty. With these advances come the need to train surgeons on new procedural workflows and techniques. VR technology is an immersive new medium for meeting this need, offering collaborative, digital, data-based education. The combination of VR and robotic technology is more than just a fun and effective way to learn; it also helps shape an evolving educational paradigm for the future.
