We’re transforming training and assessment for healthcare professionals.

We envision a world where doctors and hospital staff can train whenever and wherever they need. No matter where they work. No matter the procedure. A world where device companies and medical teams can practice together from anywhere, and empower themselves to grow with accurate assessment and insightful data. So they can deliver better outcomes for patients everywhere.

Osso VR is making that world a reality.

Our VR training and assessment platform enables healthcare professionals to train on any procedure and to stay on top of the latest advancements in medical technology. So the people we count on to restore our health and save our lives have training as advanced and effective as the procedures they perform.

Our Mission
Improve patient outcomes, increase the adoption of higher-value medical technologies, and democratize global access to the latest surgical techniques.
Our Values

Our values define what we believe in and why we do what we do. We earn our
place in the medical community by making things that advance them.

Justin Barad
Co-Founder & CEO

Justin is a board-eligible orthopedic surgeon with a Bioengineering degree from UC Berkeley, and an MD from UCLA, where he graduated first in his class. He completed his residency at UCLA and his fellowship in pediatric orthopedics at Harvard and Boston Children’s Hospital.

Originally interning to become a game developer at Activision-Blizzard, he decided to find a way to combine his passions and use his technology background to solve medical challenges after a personal family health incident introduced him to the world of healthcare. During his residency, he identified what could be one of the most pressing medical challenges of this century: how we are training our surgeons and proceduralists. With a strong interest in gaming and a first-hand understanding of the challenges facing residents and experienced doctors, he co-founded Osso VR with a mission to improve patient safety and democratize access to modern surgical techniques.

Justin has contributed as an editor at Medgadget for over a decade. He has spoken at multiple conferences including TEDMED, CES, Exponential Medicine, and Health 2.0. He also currently serves as a member of the Consumer Technology Association’s Health Technology Division Board of Directors.

He currently resides in sunny Northern California with his two great danes. In his freetime, you can find him enthusiastically singing karaoke and searching for the perfect slice of pizza.
