Bringing the Benefits of Minimally Invasive Surgery to Patients Everywhere
We’re committed to making Minimally Invasive Surgery (MIS) accessible and cost-effective so that millions more patients can benefit.
The MIRA platform weighs only two pounds, can be moved and set up easily, and eliminates the need for dedicated hospital space or infrastructure.
Optimized for MIS Bowel Resection Procedures
New technologies are accelerating MIS bowel resections and the number of patients who benefit.
Despite laparoscopic colectomy existing for 30 years, today greater than 60% of bowel resections are still performed open. Almost 300,000 patients in the USA are receiving an open bowel resection, even when a MIS approach may be indicated for them.
Over the last 5 years, innovative surgery platforms have been increasing the number of patients that are treated minimally invasively, converting both laparoscopic and open procedures to a mechanized approach. Looking forward, this trend will continue as robotic procedures are growing at a 20% CAGR while open and lap are lagging.
And Bowel resections will continue to increase as well due to growing comorbidities in the population:
- Americans with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) has grown by 44% since 1999 to reach a total of three million people
- 200,000 Americans are hospitalized annually due to diverticulitis

MIRA technology enables minimally invasive approaches that offer tremendous benefits to patients.
The investigational MIRA (“Miniaturized In vivo Robotic Assistant”) Surgical Platform weighs only two pounds and can easily be moved from room to room.
MIRA technology is designed to enable minimally invasive surgery — without the need for a dedicated space or the infrastructure typically required for “mainframe” systems.
