Virtual Knee Surgery 2

Virtual knee surgery 2 is a game which allows us to take the place of a knee surgeon and deal with knee pain and knee problems by replacing someone's knee, taking all the decisions that the surgeon has to take during the operation. Then we can compare how well we do in the knee surgery game compared to the person skilled in knee replacement surgery. With any luck we should do worse and luckily there will be no awful consequences apart from for the virtual patient!

The Virtual Knee Surgery 2 game is available at Edheads and PlayHub.com.

To be skilled in knee surgery a surgeon has to learn a number of technically difficult skills such as knee arthroscopy, knee ligament surgery and knee replacement surgery, along with the judgment to decide when and when not to operate on someone's joint. Arthroscopy demands manual skills and the ability to visualise what is being displayed on the monitors but has revolutionised knee surgery. Inpatient stay times have reduced to day cases and patients can walk normally after without aids and rarely need physiotherapy to get the best out of the procedure.
