Take care of a virtual patient suffering from morbid obesity
Determine the best bariatric procedure to treat your patient
Use your patient data to create a curriculum suited to your educational needs
The obesity surgery module has been developed with health professionals based on a patient-specific anatomy reacting to surgical interactions on the diSplay system thanks to biomechanical simulation.
Scalable and interactive, this module will be an educational tool of choice for your courses in bariatric surgery.
Example of a patient-case
Become the actor of the care of
our patient-specific cases
Choose among the proposed patient-cases and analyse Brice Obee case thanks to the 3D model of his anatomy built from scanner images and reacting to surgical procedures thanks to biomechanical simulation.
Test, measure and visualise the consequences of different surgical strategies on this virtual patient without any risks and learn how to choose the best approach.

Learn how to master bariatric surgeries planning step by step thanks to the curricula!
Ideal to animate tutorials, a curriculum enables the students to take care of a clinical case and to plan the whole surgery step by step to understand all the stakes.
Create your tailor-made structured exercise to teach your students precise pedagogical notions.
Perform your first virtual surgery trial, by applying a pattern of sutures on the inner wall of the stomach to significantly reduce its volume.
STEP 2 – RANKING EXERCISE
Visualize and compare different surgical results proposed. Then, try to rank them from the top down (from the best, to the worst).
STEP 3 – VIRTUAL SURGERY: 2ND TRIAL
Perform once again a virtual surgery on the virtual patient, and try to improve your first trial seen in step 1.
The curriculum BEST is the result of a successful collaboration the IHU Strasbourg – Institute of Image-Guided Surgery. It has been used during sessions with participants to the BEST training conducted by IHU Strasbourg.
Pr Silvana Perretta, digestive surgeon and professor for the University of Strasbourg, works with InSimo for the development of bariatric surgery module, especially the endosleeve procedure, and validate medical and educational aspects.
