Our vision for the future of surgery

Ceevra is helping usher in a new age of digital surgery, one in which 3D imaging becomes standard of care for many types of robotic and laparoscopic surgeries. And not just preoperatively, but also intraoperatively.

What lies ahead (and underneath)

Among other product advances, our team of machine learning and computer vision software engineers is developing technology to overlay our 3D models on the live endoscopic view of the patient’s anatomy, enabling robotic surgeons to virtually see beneath the operating field. We’re making surgical augmented reality a reality.
