Leadership Team

Our executive team is reinventing healthcare simulation technology and innovation.

Our History

After a long career as a trauma surgeon, Dr. Robert Buckman founded OPERATIVE EXPERIENCE with the goal of developing the world’s first patient simulators upon which major surgical hands-in-the-body operations could be performed using standard surgical instruments.

The U.S. Army Medical Research and Material Command had been in need of a new training paradigm and issued a series of SBIR grants toward the fruition of this approach.

In 2016, healthcare simulation pioneer, Lou Oberndorf joined the company and brought with him an executive team with extensive healthcare simulation experience, quickly accelerating product development and growth to transform the company into a leading simulation company with an extensive portfolio of innovative and highly-competitive simulation-based training solutions for healthcare providers, first responders, and the military.
