A healthcare startup has attracted alums from Microsoft, Apple and George Lucas’ visual effects company to turn surgical training into a cinema-quality virtual experience.

San Francisco-based Osso VR experienced rapid growth during 2020 to meet the increased demand in virtual training driven by the pandemic-fueled need for digital models, the company said.

The startup has now banked $27 million to train surgeons using high-fidelity, virtual reality simulations.

The series B funding round was led by GSR Ventures with participation from Signalfire, Kaiser Permanente Ventures, OCA Ventures, Scrum Ventures, Leslie Ventures and Anorak Ventures. The company has raised $43 million to date.

The company built a surgical training library with more than 120 modules in 10-plus specialties designed for medical device companies and practicing surgeons. As part of the recent growth, the company recently expanded into additional specialties including orthopedics, endoscopy and interventional procedures.
