Training in robotic surgery includes observation of videos of robotic surgeries, watching live surgeries, dry and wet labs, and also simulation with the various Da Vinci simulators available. These devices are described, with advantages and disadvantages. Training skills in simulators is key for adequate development of robotic surgery ideal performances.
