Vivo Surgery 400x200

About us

Vivo Surgery is a remote surgical training platform that readily empowers surgeons with new skills and knowledge, to provide the best possible care for their patients.

Originally utilized by medical students seeking remote, preliminary immersion in live neurosurgery procedures, the company has transcended its origins, now disseminating various surgical specialties to surgical residents and medical practitioners spanning across 14 countries. Furthermore, in collaboration with the Ukraine ASSIST program, the platform has played a pivotal role in remotely equipping wartime trauma surgeons with advanced transplant techniques, thus leaving an indelible mark on the landscape of medical education and global healthcare innovation.

Vivo Surgery stands proudly as the inaugural recipient of the prestigious HHS Drive Spark Grant Award, marking a momentous achievement in its journey towards excellence.
