Virtual Incision raised $46 million in Series C funding for its MIRA surgical robot. MIRA is a miniature surgical robotics assistant designed for laparoscopic procedures such as colon resection. Virtual Incision recently announced the world’s first surgery using MIRA.
MIRA is a miniaturized solution for robot-assisted laparoscopic surgery, regardless of the site of care. The round was led by Endeavour Vision and Baird Capital, with participation from returning investor Bluestem Capital and others. MIRA is intended to address the limitations associated with current main-frame robotic-assisted surgery systems.
