Abstract Arthroscopic surgery is one of the most difficult surgeries, so even if an orthopedic resident trains a lot, it is difficult to perform surgery well. In addition, a resident does not have many opportunities to perform surgery before becoming a licensed orthopedist. In order to help train residents, we created a virtual arthroscopic surgery simulator. Our goal is to improve the residents’ surgical proficiency in repairing rotator cuff tears and Bankart lesions. We carried out nine usability tests with an orthopedist, and are improving the simulator based on the results.
