Osso VR is a company that uses virtual reality to teach surgeons how to use medical devices and perform surgeries and assessment. Imagine being able to practice many times over before performing on a live patient. Imagine what this level practice will do prevent medical errors and save lives.
With me is Dr. Justin Barad, a pediatric orthopedic surgeon who also has a passion for gaming. Originally interning to become a game developer at Activision-Blizzard, Justin decided to find a way to combine his passions and use his technology background to solve medical challenges after a personal family health incident introduced him to the world of healthcare. During his residency, he identified what could be one of the most pressing medical challenges of this century: how we are training our surgeons and proceduralists. With a strong interest in gaming and a first-hand understanding of the challenges facing residents and experienced doctors, he co-founded Osso VR with a mission to improve patient safety and democratize access to modern surgical techniques.
