Endoscopic surgery for minimally invasive surgery is a useful technology to diagnose and treat a variety of diseases. Epiduroscopy is a renowned procedure in effective diagnosing and curing lumbago patients. However, surgeons should observe complex internal organ of a human body through searching narrow view of endoscopy shown in 2D monitors. For this reason, it requires dexterity to control the surgical instruments adequately. In this paper, we propose an epiduroscopy training simulator using virtual fixture. The proposed erpiduroscopy training simulator provides important surgical procedure of epiduroscopy using virtual fixture. The performance of surgical training simulator is enhanced by providing 3D human model view and C-ARM view which is used in an actual surgery .
