Co-founder and CEO of Osso VR, Justin Barad, M.D., is a board-eligible orthopaedic surgeon with a Bioengineering degree from UC Berkeley and an M.D. 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. Dr. Barad is currently practicing at the Orthopaedic Institute for Children.
Dr. Barad, who has been a lifelong coder and has a game credit with Activision, originally wanted to be a game developer. When a personal family health incident introduced him to the world of healthcare, he decided to find a way to combine his passions and use his technology background to solve medical problems. 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.
