Virtual Incision is the pioneer of in vivo mini-robot surgery, enabling minimally-invasive colon resection and other abdominal procedures. Colorectal cancer is the second-deadliest form of the disease, and along with conditions like Diverticulitis and Crohn’s, treatment often requires a colectomy, almost 400,000 of which are performed each year in the U.S. alone. Two-thirds of these procedures are still performed open, requiring a long, gruesome incision. VIC’s simpler/easier/cheaper approach is to insert a mini-robot into the insufflated abdomen via a small umbilical incision, after which the highly-dextrous robot arms are freely manipulated at the nearby surgeon console. VIC enables MIS colectomy using well-known laparoscopic tools, onboard vision, and leading multi-quadrant capabilities. After 70+ pig labs and with 60+ patents/applications, VIC is seeking a $15M Series B financing to achieve First-in-Man and prepare for CE Mark and FDA 510(k) submissions.Something looks off?
