Surgical Theater secures $9M Series A from HTC, SCI

Surgical Theater

Surgical Theater has raised $9 million Series A round of financing, led by HTC and Shanghai Creation Investment Management Co.

The company makes Virtual Reality and Image Guidance software for healthcare that is transforming the way surgeons consult with patients, plan complex surgical procedures, and use medical imaging to navigate during surgery and post operative review with their peers.

Surgical Theater has already tested its technology at UCLA Department of Neurosurgery. At the time of that test, researchers used Oculus Rift, but with HTC providing funds for the company, chances are that some future test, or real-world application, will include the HTC Vive glasses, instead.

“Surgical Theater’s Virtual Reality and Image Guidance also extends into the operating room, coupled with intra-operative navigation systems we are providing dynamic visualization capabilities in real time, allowing surgeons to perform a real-time ‘fly through’ of the surgical pathway, establish multiple views, rotate and interact with the navigation image,” stated Moty Avisar, Surgical Theater CEO and Co-Founder. “Additionally, the software suite allows HIPAA-compliant peer to peer consultation in specific cases.”

The company will use the funds to expand its business, get new clients and ultimately bring its technology to more surgeons.
