Vision

Being an orthopeadic, Danny experienced some of the major challenges that in medical education. The current mode of teaching surgery, according to him, is still heavily dependent on apprenticeship, where students learn under the tutelage of an experienced master. 

In an interview with one of the orthopedic digital platforms, he said:

“After their five years of residency training, new surgeons haven’t always received the training they need to be fully autonomous or ready for independent practice. At the same time, virtual reality has advanced to the point where the software, hardware and artistry have come together to allow us to create extremely realistic, high-fidelity experiences. That gives us the opportunity to change how surgery is taught."

This motivated Danny to lay the foundations of PrecisionOS, a medical - grade learning platform to advance surgical readiness. 

In a recent interview with Dinis Guarda, he said:

"We all learn and model things, but if there is a technology that actually shows the skills that are transferrable to the OR, that's the part to me that's most important. That means, we can take a non-expert or an inexperienced person and make them into an experienced one with an intervention like VR. 

With technologies like VR, we can make the learning more personalized, rather than time-based. We can provide a safe medium for people to make mistakes, using a principle known as productive failure, which obviously isn’t possible with a living patient.”
