OP2000 is a concept of the future of surgery, where new technologies are optimized and used in the clinical routine. This paper presents one of the key modules of the concept OP2000: simulation and visualization for the training of surgical procedures in a high immersive, virtual environment. The main parts of this module are: the Surgical Table, which is an enhanced, high immersive workbench projection, specially designed for the simulation of surgical interventions; 3-dimensional reconstruction of radiological patient data. Work in progress involves the implementation of haptic feedback devices.
