Dr. James Clarkson
Chief Medical Officer
Dr James Clarkson MD (MBBS, MSc, FRCS (Plast), FRCSC) is an Assistant Professor of Surgery at Michigan State University and our Chief Medical officer. He was trained as a Plastic Surgeon in the United Kingdom, followed by a Hand Fellowship at the Christine Kleinert Institute Louisville Kentucky. He has been faculty at the Department of Surgery at MSU since 2010. Since 2016 he has been using VR to enable his office hand surgeries under local anesthesia and conducted a successful trial of this process using commercially available material. Driven by the need for a streamlined medical VR system that could deliver more tailor-made experiences for his patients he looked outside of medicine and approached industry for a solution.
