Disclosed herein is a portable device designed to be used for the training and practice of video-laparoscopic surgical techniques. The device permits practicing surgical techniques that closely simulate actual surgical situations by capturing the surgical work area on a self-contained video camera or digital imaging device and transmitting the captured image to a television monitor, LCD screen or computer, thus allowing the surgical technique to be viewed remotely as well as permitting the procedure to be recorded, and viewed and critiqued later.
