Co-founder and CEO of Osso VR, Justin Barad, MD- a board-eligible orthopedic surgeon with a Bioengineering degree from UC Berkeley, and an MD from UCLA – originally wanted to be a game developer and has been a lifelong coder and even has a game credit with Activision. When a personal family health incident introduced him to the world of healthcare, he decided to find a way to combine his passions and use his technology background to solve medical problems. During his residency, he identified what could be one of the most pressing medical challenges of this century: how we are training our surgeons. 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.
Osso VR uses virtual reality to provide the platform, content and tools to bridge the surgical training gap. The mission is to improve patient outcomes, increase the adoption of higher-value medical technologies and democratize access to surgical education around the globe. Today, Osso VR is working with many of the world’s top orthopedic hospitals and device companies.
Osso VR is not just for surgeons. Sales reps and OR staff can benefit from its technology with its team training scenarios.
To have an impact on patient outcomes, you need training solutions that measure, compare, and improve key performance indicators.
(We do this.)
To increase utilization of higher-value medical technology, you need solutions that deliver validated clinical training and product awareness at scale.
(Yep, we do that, too.)
To open up access to the latest techniques and innovations, you need solutions that remotely connect surgeons, sales teams and hospital staff in VP-and in the OR.
(We do all the things.)
