  • “By assembling a cadre of top surgeons and researchers for each type of orthopedic practice to help us, we will also capture the ways different surgeons learn, get different perspectives on how procedures are best taught, and be able to keep updating and adding information in new techniques and technologies to our training modules.

PrecisionOS® has expanded its Clinical Advisory Board with the addition of six prominent orthopedic surgeons specializing in shoulder and elbow surgery and research.

The new members are: George Athwal, M.D., Professor, Hand and Upper Limb Center, Western University; Ruth Delaney, M.D., F.R.C.S., Orthopedic Surgeon and Associate Clinical Professor, University College, Dublin, Ireland; Bassem Elhassan, M.D., Professor of Orthopedics, Harvard Medical School; Bernard F.

Warner, M.D., Chief of Shoulder Service, Professor of Orthopedic Surgery, Harvard Medical School.

Each physician was invited to join the PrecisionOS team because of their individual expertise and will work with PrecisionOS to develop advanced virtual reality (VR) training in their particular interest areas for the shoulder and elbow.

The six surgeons are all highly-respected in the orthopedic community and have either served, or are currently serving, on numerous prestigious organization boards and committees. All six have published extensively, as well as lectured to national and international audiences on their respective areas of expertise while being educators to hundreds of residents and fellows.
