Custom virtual educational modules provide a powerful medium for surgeons and trainees to make decisions, evaluate their outcome and repeat, improving their surgical skill through practice volume.
The Precision preoperative tool enables surgeons to upload complex, peri-articular fractures to structure a pre-planned approach to their case. They are then able perform virtual surgery and analyze the resulting data.

"Game Changing. The potential for Precision OS to take off and change countless lives for the better is real and the limits could be boundless."
Bruce Carruthers, ConmedSenior Director - Marketing CONMED CANADA
"Surgical Skills training in a non-operating room environment will become increasingly critical for residents in Orthopaedic Surgery to obtain the skills they need. As cost continues to come down and technology improves I believe that simulation through Virtual Reality will increasingly be a part of our skills educational programs."
Dr. JL Marsh, MD Department Head Professor and Carroll B Larson Chair Department of Orthopedics and Rehabilitation - University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics
"Virtual reality has the potential to positively impact and advance the way surgery residents are trained by offering more frequent and in-depth operating room experience. We are looking forward to exploring this technology and introducing the Precision OS platform to our residents and fellows."
Dr. Joaquin Sanchez-Sotelo, MD Professor in the Department of Orthopedic Surgery at the Mayo Clinic
"The next generation of surgeons will have to learn advanced skills and decision-making with limited time for their training. Virtual reality offers an impactful way to create value by improving surgical skill and reducing errors. Precision OS will deliver value to all stakeholders in healthcare: educators, industry, hospitals, insurers, and patients. The timing of such a technology could not be more perfect!"
Dr. Jon J.P. Warner, MD Founder of the Boston Shoulder Institute, New England Shoulder and Elbow Society
"VR training is the way of the future. It will enhance patient care by having a more skilled and well-prepared surgeon. The software and training unit of Precision OS is brilliantly put together and is a major advance for our residency and fellowship training program!"
Dr. Peter MacDonald, MD Professor and Head Section of Orthopedics at the University of Manitoba
“The technology within PrecisionOS far exceeded my expectations. As a pediatric orthopedic surgeon, I was able to practice a particular portion of a common operation I have found challenging, and with the immediate feedback was able to improve my technique within minutes. The ability to practice an operation for either training, learning new technology, or pre-op practice of a particular case is immeasurably valuable. Precision OS was easy to learn, fun to use, exceptionally accurate and will undoubtably be the future of surgical education and practice.”
Dr. Brent Weatherhead, MD FRCSCPediatric Orthopedic Surgeon Clinical Instructor, UBC Department of Orthopedic Surgery Medical Director, RebalanceMD
"As an experienced Trauma surgeon, I have seen the learning curve for learners change for many years. This new technology can really help shorten this curve and make learning Trauma surgery quicker and safer for the patients."
Dr. Richard Buckley, MD FRCS Former Head Orthopedic Trauma Professor, University of Calgary
“Virtual Reality represents a technological advance that will be revolutionary in the training programs for surgical residents as well as in the pre-operative planning phase for surgeons at any level of skill or experience. The seemingly limitless potential that comes with this technology will empower residents and surgeons alike, and is sure to enhance the care we give to our patients.”
Dr. Paulose J. Paul, MD Assistance Clinical Professor, Division of Orthopedic Surgery, University of Alberta Edmonton Zone Clinical Lead for Orthopedic Surgery
"Being able to practice a surgery as many times as I want, and being able to see what I'm doing right and wrong immediately has led me to feel far more confident when I enter a real operating room. Free time is very limited as a resident, and having the ability to practice anywhere in an interactive, efficient, and fun way lets me learn and not feel overwhelmed."
Dr. Ryan Lohre, MD PGY3 University of British Columbia
”Working with virtual reality for a spectrum of orthopaedic surgeries demonstrated a valuable learning modality for people who learn procedures best with hand-on experience. This well structured, interactive process with responsive feedback throughout will bring value to learning procedures for surgeons of all levels and comfort with technology.”
Dr. Mark Steeves, BSc BEd MD FRCSCOrthopaedic Surgeon, University of Ottawa Foot and Ankle reconstruction fellowship preceptor.
"I believe Precision OS technology will significantly enhance the surgical education of residents and staff in the future."
Dr. W D Regan, MD FRCSCAssociate Professor, Department of Orthopedics, University of British Columbia Division head: Arthroscopy, Joint preservation and Reconstruction
“The 'realism' of Virtual Reality has advanced tremendously in recent years. I think this technology holds significant potential in surgical simulation training for surgical residents, both now and in the future.”
Dr. Chad Coles, MD FRCSC Associate Professor of Surgery, Dalhousie University
“I am very excited about virtual reality surgical training development . Through virtual reality training, orthopedic residents and surgeons in rural areas and in countries with limited resources can access updated surgical experience for even the most complicated procedures, without the cost prohibitive need for travel abroad or for hands-on cadaver workshops. Virtual reality promises to change the way we do training and to help improve and standardize the quality of surgical healthcare in even the poorest countries.”
Dr. Alaaeldin (Alaa) Azmi Ahmad, MDPediatric Orthopedic Surgeon Associate Professor, Orthopedic Department, Annajah Medical School, Palestine Secretary General, World Orthopedic Concern (WOC)
"As it becomes increasingly challenging to provide a high standard of operative teaching, a tool such as VR is a hugely valuable addition to the way we educate the next generation of surgeons and ultimately to the way we ensure optimal patient care."
Dr. Ruth Delaney, FRCSFounder, Dublin Shoulder Institute Assistant Clinical Professor of Surgery, University College Dublin
“In my practice, I could see this being a very useful tool in pre-op planning of complex fracture reconstructions and could be used to improve residents’ understanding of complex three-dimensional injuries.”
Dr. Geoffrey Wilkin, MD FRCSCOrthopaedic Surgeon Practising in Orthopaedic Trauma & Hip Preservation Surgery Assistant Professor, Division of Orthopaedic Surgery, University of Ottawa
"The use of virtual reality allows young trainees and older experienced surgeons to train, to improve and to plan complex cases ahead in an immersive way which is close enough to the reality to have a real clinical value. This is only the beginning and there is absolutely no doubt that this is the future of surgical training."
Jean-David Werthel, MD, MSOrthopedic Surgeon Paris Shoulder Unit Hopital Ambroise Paré, Boulogne-Billancourt, France
