Simulated Surgical Systems, LLC

Dec. 8th, 2010 : David Parish, President

Simulated Surgical Systems, LLC, has developed and is selling the Robotic Surgery Simulator, or RoSSTM, which trains surgeons on the fundamentals of robotic surgery. The company was founded by Khursid Guru, MD., Director of Robotic Surgery at Roswell Park Cancer Institute in Buffalo, NY and Thenkuruss 'Kesh' Kesavadas, PhD, Director of the Virtual Reality Lab at State University of New York at Buffalo. Their four year development cooperation has lead to the patented RoSS, which has a physical interface similar to that of an actual surgery robot, and uses virtual reality to present the user with training exercises that develop robotic control skills.

Simulated Surgical System's core competence is in curriculum design and associated software development. The company's patented Hands on Surgical Training (HoSTTM) technology enables creation of procedure specific training modules for a fraction of the cost of conventional methods.

The company currently has five systems installed at major teaching hospitals and orders for four more that are in production. Simulated Surgical Systems is seeking $600k in investment to finance engineering of additional software modules, and expansion of our marketing and sales effort.
