In this episode of Medtech Matters, a podcast focused on the medical device manufacturing industry and the factors impacting it, we speak with Justin Barad, orthopedic surgeon and founder of Osso VR. Barad shares insights on the advantages of leveraging virtual reality technologies for the simulation of surgical procedures for training, introducing new products, and other applications. He also offers his thoughts on the influx of new, “smart” technologies that are enhancing the traditional implants in orthopedics. Specifically, we pose the following questions to him.  
 
  • Please tell us about Osso VR and specifically, your virtual reality based surgical training platform?
  • I’ve definitely seen a shift in orthopedics even within the last five years where sensors, virtual and augmented reality, robotics, and other non-traditional orthopedic advancements are impacting this sector. As both a surgeon and a medical device professional, what’s your impression of this influx of new innovations?
  • How do these technologies impact the way we care for patients?
  • From your point of view, what has the pandemic revealed about the orthopedic industry? Beyond the negative impact on surgical procedures, are there lessons to learn that we can use going forward?
  • Is the rapid adoption of telehealth going to have a significant impact on orthopedics?
