SAN FRANCISCO – March 23, 2021 – Osso VR, a validated Virtual Reality (VR) surgical training platform, is announcing the expansion of its VR modules to additional specialties including interventional procedures and endoscopy, providing additional specialties with a safe and repeatable environment for surgeons, sales teams and other trainees.

“As an orthopaedic surgeon I have seen firsthand the need for an on demand training and assessment tool for healthcare professionals.,” said Justin Barad, MD, CEO and co-founder of Osso VR. “Initially Osso VR started mainly in orthopaedics, but what we have found is the unique platform we have built has been widely applicable across a range of specialties. We’re excited to formally launch this expansion in order to reach more healthcare professionals in order to provide value for their patients. This is an important milestone in Osso’s ambitious mission to improve patient outcomes, increase the adoption of high value medical technology, and democratize access to surgical education worldwide.“
Osso VR’s surgical training technology provides on-demand, immersive experiences that are effective, repeatable and measurable to help surgeons reach proficiency with new procedures and devices.
