Virtual reality combined with surgical robotics and micro-incisions is proving to be a valuable mix for the startup Vicarious Surgical. According to Mobihealth News, the company received a second round of funding from A-list investors including the Gates Foundation, Khsola Ventures and Marc Benioff (Salesforce Founder). The latest funding brings the total to $30M for the Massachusetts based company. The company aims to perfect a micro-incision approach “using miniaturized robotics and immersive [VR] to give surgeons improved capabilities” according to one investor. As technology advances, competitors are eyeing new niches and expanding capabilities in the surgical robot arena – seeking to share the market dominated by industry trailblazer Intuitive Surgical with the Da Vinci Robot.
