Surgeons are frustrated with surgical training practices today. They expect their training experiences to be dynamic, innovative, realistic, and customizable to multiple procedure/patient specifics. Marion Surgical is working with surgeons from around the globe to build a truly next generation suite of surgical simulators. Through virtual reality, Marion Surgical enable surgeons to learn, collaborate, practice, and share procedures in a realistic, safe, cloud-hosted environment.

“Imagine knowing that your surgeon has already rehearsed your surgery. Imaging the peace of mind of knowing they got a perfect score. Marion Surgical is building a virtual reality surgical rehearsal platform to do just that. Innovation means solving seemingly impossible open problems with technology or fresh ideas.”

– Ben Sainsbury, CEO, Marion Surgical
