Activ Surgical is pioneering digital surgery imaging
Our mission is for every surgical imaging system to deliver intelligent information that reduces surgical complication rates, ushering in a new standard of patient care and safety.
The company’s technology expands human capability allowing surgeons in the operating room to view critical physiological structures and functions, like blood flow, that cannot be seen with the naked eye.
Having completed the world’s first autonomous robotic surgery of soft tissue in 2018, the company is focused on enhanced, real-time visualization capabilities for surgeons that combine advanced augmented reality (AR), artificial intelligence (AI), and machine learning (ML) technology.
Our vision is to transform the collective surgical experience by leveraging emerging technologies and data into insights that make world-class surgery accessible for all.

Innovation in the surgical vision category is long overdue; the most commonly employed surgical imaging process, ICG, uses fluorescent dye invented more than 70 years ago and does not offer real-time, objective physiologic information to surgeons when they critically need it during procedures,” said Dr. Peter Kim, co-founder and chief science officer, Activ Surgical. “Activ Surgical is designed to empower surgeons to make better informed decisions by offering real-time intelligence and visualization to dramatically reduce medical complications and surgical errors.”
