then based on that, you can
actually learn. "

doctor who has to rely solely on simulation
rooms or cadaver training, Dr Barad
says. VR changes the equation.
Dr Barad is cofounder and chief
strategy officer of Osso VR, a training
and assessment platform that uses a
virtual OR to teach complex medical
procedures (including over 30 orthopedic
procedures). The platform offers not
only hyper-realistic visuals and hands-on
experience, but also a means to measure
surgeons' proficiency throughout
the training for objective assessment.
Research shows that using these VR
tools brings tangible results, including improved
accuracy in following procedures,
fewer errors, and faster procedural completion
time. For Osso VR, partnerships
with major medical device manufacturers,
including Johnson & Johnson, Stryker,
and MicroPort, ensure training reflects
the latest developments.
Dr Barad tells a story of a fully
trained joint replacement surgeon who
was trying to transition from posterior
hip replacement to a more minimally invasive
anterior hip replacement-a procedure
that he says can take 50 to 100
cases to fully learn. The first time he did
the anterior hip replacement following
traditional training, it took 3 hours and
30 minutes. The surgeon went through

the Osso VR curriculum, completing 91
sessions over a 2-week period. As part
of the training, an expert joined him to
provide additional guidance remotely
through the VR platform.
" At the end, he operated on the
same patient, but on the other hip, "
Dr Barad says. " That side, after the
training, took 1 hour and 45 minutes-
about half the time. Our team was so
moved. The recovery was faster, everything
was better. The surgeon told us,
'At case 10, I am where I expected to
be at case 50.' "
All you need is a smartphone
Sam Glassenberg, CEO of medical
video game studio Level Ex, argues that
VR headsets are not essential for video
game medical training. All people need
to learn is a phone.
Glassenberg-who started his career
leading an independent Hollywood video
game studio serving tens of millions
of players-says requiring surgeons to
repeat procedures so many times to
achieve competency is not necessarily
about practicing technique. Rather, the
repetition helps ensure they can identify
and deal with the rare nuances and
complications associated with any given
procedure. " Unforeseen cases are what
Examples of these " serious video
games " include Top Derm, which provides
medically accurate, computer-generated
dermatological imagery; Cardio
Ex, which turns diagnosing cardiac diseases
and performing interventions into
a game; and Airway Ex, which helps anesthesiologists,
emergency medicine specialists,
and nurses hone their skills and
manage rare complications in difficult airway
and anesthesia procedures. Players
earn American Medical Association CME
credits directly through their devices.
In addition to serious games, reportedly
played by 3 million people on
personal devices, Level Ex offers mobile
augmented reality (AR) training. AR
training involves projecting a virtual patient
into the room-something 70,000
to 80,000 people have reportedly experienced
already-as well as VR headset
applications. Tried so far by 8,000
users, VR is most useful for practicing
positioning relative to the patient, he
says.
However, games that can be played
on a mobile device are the most accessible,
Glassenberg says. They also
can be adapted in a matter of weeks
to align with specific hospital guidelines
or needs. " There are certain cases
where hospitals will come to us to build
content specific to their facilities, " he
notes. " Maybe they are ordering too
many of this test or not enough of this
test or struggling with this topic. "
Level Ex also works with major medical
societies, such as the American Society
of Anesthesiologists, to disseminate
their guidelines. " You can play and
