Virtual Reality Makes a Real Impact in the Operating Room

Educational VR makes another giant leap forward as the Johnson & Johnson Institute—a world leader in professional learning—launches a global virtual reality training program for surgeons and nurses.

The new J&J program offers unique training to orthopedic surgeons based on clinically relevant, real-life scenarios to:

  • Improve patient outcomes
  • Drive standardization
  • Reduce costs
  • Save time

80% of surgeons who used the first education module said they would use VR frequently for training. 90% said they would recommend it to their peers.

J&J has already deployed 50 VR systems and plans to install more across the globe. It’s yet another way the healthcare industry is using VR to raise the standard of care, and we can’t wait to see where J&J takes it next.
