PrecisionOS and Siemens Healthineers to Develop VR Surgical Training

PrecisionOS is now offering immersive virtual reality (VR) training in partnership with Siemens Healthineers. The module helps surgeons and technicians practice the use of Siemens Healthineers' mobile 3D C-arm Cios Spin for intraoperative quality control and surgical workflow guidance. Multi-user, peer-to-peer training sessions will enable the exchange of surgical procedure know-how on a virtual patient, with the intent to lead to an enhanced surgeon/technician collaboration.

"Providing better training for surgeons and technicians will promote better teamwork and experience for everyone in the OR," said Danny Goel, M.D., orthopedic surgeon and CEO, PrecisionOS. "The result will be better patient care and improved OR safety."

Case study results, "Novel Application of Immersive Virtual Reality Simulation Training: A Case Report," have detailed how a fourth-year resident, after practicing on PrecisionOS' training module, successfully redid a surgery for slipped capital femoral epiphysis using 10 times less radiation vs. the index procedure.
