Medivis Snags $20M to Enhance Surgical Navigation With Augmented Reality

Medivis recently raised $20 million in a Series A funding round that included investments from Mayo Clinic, Bob Iger and Kevin Durant. The New York City-based company's technology can be thought of as a “virtual GPS system” for surgeons — it helps them navigate complex anatomical landscapes during operations and gives them a more accurate, intuitive understanding of the anatomy with which they're dealing.
