Surgeons who are better with their hands in general simply are predisposed to playing video games because their manual dexterity is well-suited to them?
This study doesn't surprise me at all, and I highly doubt the correlation goes that direction. I have seen first time gamers play CS for a year and then get owned by a first time CS player who had played games for years. Skill at a particular genre of game is often more important than skill at a particular game.
Laparoscopy involves using controls to move something on a screen. Sometimes the thing on the screen moves the same direction as the control and sometimes the opposite. In my opinion and experience just having years of exposure to moving things on screen via controls will give you a huge leg up over someone who hasn't. Even if the other person has a jump start on Lap itself.
Just my opinion, of course.http://www.bandega.com
