About Us  |  Team |  Contributors

AVATAR MEDICAL™ was founded in 2020 by a French and American team of entrepreneurs, physicists, engineers, and surgeons to enable shorter, safer, and less invasive surgeries.

With AVATAR MEDICAL™’s VR solution, surgeons can better prepare their procedures by interacting with an ultra-fluid, photo-realistic VR representation of their patients’ medical images.

Our multi-awarded solution stems from 4 years of research at Institut Pasteur and Institut Curie.
