More $$ for surgical snake

December 21, 2012


Medrobotics, previously CardioRobotics, just completed a $32 million series D round of financing to help finalize commercializing the first surgical snake robot, co-invented by Howie Choset, a CMU professor.

The Flex Robotic System will enable hospitals and surgeons to expand their offering of single-site access, visualization and treatment options.

With this round of funding, Medrobotics has raised more than $60 million since its inception.
