Making mistakes is human and a natural part of any learning process. But for doctors and patients, the stakes are incredibly high. In open orthopedic surgery alone, millions of preventable surgical errors happen globally every year. These errors create costs in the billions worldwide for hospitals, doctors, patients and insurance providers. And the human toll is immeasurable.
Dr. Arne Schlenzka is a training surgeon and the founder and CEO of Osgenic, a pioneering company on a mission to find a cure to this growing problem.
By partnering with Varjo to deliver a solution that allows surgeons to train for complex open surgeries in human-eye resolution VR, Osgenic aims to reduce open surgical complications saving patients pain and suffering and saving hospitals and insurance providers in costs.
