Middle-age Nintendo Mutant Surgeons

[Welcome Industry Radar readers!]

(Patient) "Say doc. Just how many of these gallbladder surgeries have you done?"

(Doc) "On real people?"

(Patient) "Well, yeah . . ."

(Doc) "Including you?"

(Patient) "Yes . . ."

(Doc) "One."

Far fetched? Maybe not.

playing certain video games on the Nintendo Wii helps surgical residents to hone their fine motor skills and improve their performance on a serious surgery simulator.

Sounds like a Doogie Howser episode.

Or maybe Revenge of the Nerdy Doctors.

OK, maybe "mutant" was a bit over the top.
