“It’s amazing how that little monkey wound up being able to help me and others become better surgeons” said an actual doctor.

At a Florida hospital, the doctors are encouraged to play six minutes of video games before surgery. Dr. James Rosser, who co-authored a study on the benefits of gaming and laparoscopic surgery years ago at Beth Israel, is now putting the policy in motion at a local Florida hospital. The end result? An area where the surgeons can relax, kick back and play some Super Monkey Ball.


Seriously though, Gamecube? Look, I know the Gamecube version of Super Monkey Ball is great, but you might wanna get something a bit newer. Maybe a little Surgeon-Simulator 2013? Get with the times, doc!
