VANCOUVER, British Columbia—December 03, 2021—PrecisionOS has expanded its Clinical Advisory Board with the addition of Ruth Delaney, M.D., F.R.C.S., orthopedic surgeon and Associate Clinical Professor, University College, Dublin, Ireland.
Delaney’s special interest is the shoulder, which is the entire focus of her practice, and will work with PrecisionOS to develop advanced virtual reality (VR) training in this interest area.
After beginning her shoulder practice in Dublin at the Sports Surgery Clinic and Beacon Hospital, Delaney opened the Dublin Shoulder Institute. She takes care of many high level athletes and is currently serving as shoulder consultant to Munster Rugby, a professional rugby team. She also addresses the needs of a variety of other types of complex degenerative shoulder problems.
An active researcher, Delaney won the Neer Award for her work on shoulder instability surgery. She was also the first surgeon in Ireland to perform a superior capsular reconstruction, to perform a pyrocarbon hemiarthroplasty and to use mixed reality technology for shoulder arthroplasty.
As a leading authority on the shoulder, Delaney is regularly invited to speak to international audiences. She has published extensively and currently serves as Deputy Editor for shoulder and elbow research for the Journal of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons.
Delaney is currently chairperson of the 2022 European Society for Surgery of the Shoulder and Elbow (ESSSE/SECEC) Congress. She is a founding committee member of the Irish Shoulder & Elbow Society (ISES). Delaney is also a member of such prestigious organizations as the American Shoulder and Elbow Surgeons (ASES).
Delaney obtained her M.D. from University College Cork, Ireland, and followed this with an orthopedic residency at the Harvard Combined Orthopaedic Residency Program in Boston. She undertook additional training with a shoulder fellowship at Massachusetts General Hospital and Brigham and Women’s Hospital, as well as in Lyon and Annecy, France.
PrecisionOS was founded in partnership with clinical orthopedic surgeon educators and an expert group of XR (virtual reality, augmented reality and mixed reality) developers to create training for orthopedic surgeons. The company’s immersive simulations are scientifically validated, peer-reviewed and published in leading medical research journals. Participants engage in a realistic operating environment, alone or in collaboration with other trainees anywhere in the world, test their knowledge and desire to try alternate approaches, receive instructive feedback and repeat procedures until achieving proficiency.
PrecisionOS is based in Vancouver, BC, with collaborative affiliations with more than 40 major medical institutions in the U.S., Canada. Their software has been used in more than 35 countries and 500 cities worldwide.
