This innovative app provides a user-friendly platform that helps medical professionals from all backgrounds train effectively for procedures. The 3D simulations and surgical content have been developed in collaboration with leading surgeons and academic institutions worldwide to ensure the utmost accuracy and validity. The platform is the largest and fastest growing community of surgeons learning and rehearsing operations digitally.

The interactive simulations and virtual patients teach specific techniques for all phases of medical and surgical procedures. This practical approach helps improve engagement for a deeper level of understanding, and has been proven to yield better results than more traditional methods.

Physicians, nurses and healthcare professionals can train and test their knowledge of surgery with clear and informative content at every step of a procedure. They can master specific exercises or freshen up on their skills before an operation.
With the largest database of over 150+ simulations across multiple surgical specialties, including Orthopedics, Ophthalmology, Plastic, Neurosurgery, Oral, Vascular and many more, this mobile app is the most comprehensive tool for medical professionals.

Considered as hosting “the best surgical simulations” by TopOrthoApps and “an integral tool for surgeons across the world to learn, and rehearse operations” by MedGadget.

Great app; problematic last update. No offline access.


In latest iOS update, two problems: the bottom info screen will no longer swipe up to show the longer explanations at all. I am now also forced to create an account and log in in order to use the app, which was not the case before.

In addition, the fact that must have internet connection in order to use the app severely limits its utility, especially in the hospital.

If could fix the explanations bug, enable offline access, and perhaps remove the new account-creation need, is a great start and will get better as more procedures added. Some more features which would be great: ability to hide the answers in quiz mode before you are shown the multiple choice, to make it more realistic memorization test. Also the ability to skip to specific points in the operation instead of having to swipe through the whole thing again to get to a specific step.

Medicine is your profession? Then try this!


This simulator is too awesome. I’m a medical assistant in training. I was looking around in the App Store for any good medical materials I could download and utilize. I don’t regret downloading Touch Surgery (along with TS player), I love it! I have a test coming about the cardiovascular system and this simulator is an amazing advance technology to experience virtual surgery. And also, I was so amazed as to why this app was free with such great quality. For all the other medical and anatomically apps I’ve download, it requires me to pay up if I wanted to continue or want more lessons available.



If you are having the issue of the app not allowing you to make an account, just enter in the email and password you would like, click the "make account" button, and then back out to where it says "already have an account? Login" click "login" and type the same email and password. Once inside the app it will ask you which hospital is yours, I just used the one nearest to me.
