Orthopedic surgeon's VR company to double in size by 2023

Alan Condon -  

Osso VR, a virtual reality surgical training company, now employs more than 200 people and aims to double in size by 2023.

Led by orthopedic surgeon Justin Barad, MD, Osso VR develops training modules that allow providers to train in certain procedures before performing surgery. The company has more than 200 modules in over a dozen specialties, according to a July 20 news release. 

Surgeons can use the modules to train with complex technologies, and medical device companies are using the modules to address challenges of in-person education, such as conflicting physician schedules, remote staff and costly travel.

"Osso VR's platform provides a unique opportunity to deliver care improvements at a level rarely seen outside of major therapeutic advances," Dr. Barad said in the news release. "As a fully-remote, VR-enabled team, we're pioneering a new way of working that supports our mission to improve care quality and outcomes, lead the adoption of higher-value surgical techniques, and democratize access to next generation surgical training."
