Memic Innovative Surgery Raises $96 Million

April 12, 2021

Memic Innovative Surgery notes the funding primarily supports the commercialization of Hominis® surgical robot in the United States following FDA De Novo marketing authorization. (The financing round was led by Peregrine Ventures and Ceros with participation from Ourcrowd and Accelmed).

The financing will also support continued research and development efforts including expanding the company’s portfolio of products and manufacturing scaleup, as well as provide world-class customer support and training.

“The Hominis system represents a significant advancement in the growing multi-billion-dollar robotic surgery market. This financing positions us to accelerate our commercialization efforts and bring Hominis to both surgeons and patients in the months ahead,” said Dvir Cohen, co-founder and CEO of Memic.

The Hominis system received De Novo marketing authorization from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in February 2021 for use in single site, natural orifice laparoscopic-assisted transvaginal benign surgical procedures including benign hysterectomy. It is the first and only FDA-authorized surgical robotic platform that features miniature humanoid-shaped robotic arms that provide human level dexterity, multi-planar flexibility and 360 degrees of articulation. The biomimetic instruments are designed to replicate the motions and capabilities of a surgeon’s arms, with shoulder, elbow and wrist joints. Multiple instruments can be introduced to the body through a single portal and the 360-degree articulation offers obstacle avoidance as well as optimal access and working angles.

In addition to these features, the system will be sold at a significantly lower price compared to other marketed robotic surgery systems, potentially allowing more medical facilities including hospitals and ambulatory surgical centers to access and adopt surgical robotics.

“Given the broad potential of Hominis combined with a strong management team, we are proud to support Memic and execution of its bold vision,” said Eyal Lifschitz, managing general partner of Peregrine Ventures.

“We are grateful for the opportunity to work with management on this exciting milestone for both Memic and the field of robotic surgery,” said Mark Goldwasser, CEO of Ceros.
