Train One, Classify One, Teach One:
Cross-Surgery Transfer Learning for Surgical Step Recognition
In this report, we analyze, for the first time, surgical step recognition on four different laparoscopic surgeries:
- Right Hemicolectomies
- Sleeve Gastrectomies
Inspired by the traditional apprenticeship model, in which surgical training is based on the Halstedian method, we paraphrase the “see one, do one, teach one” approach for the surgical intelligence domain as “train one, classify one, teach one”.
