Vicarious Surgical and CMR Surgical recently combined to raise over $1 billion from public and private investors. Big money clearly as found surgical robotics. Now what?

We connect with Per Vegard Nerseth, the new CEO of CMR. Nerseth comes to CMR from the robotics industry, so he brings deep industry understanding of what it will take to get CMR to the next level. The company closed on $600 million for a Series D, which is likely the largest private medtech investment in history.

Later, we reconnect with Adam Sachs, co-founder and CEO of Vicarious
Surgical. Sachs walks us through the process of merging with a SPAC (not for the faint-hearted.) With over $400 million in hand, Vicarious is bringing in senior talent and moving to a legacy filled new HQ to prepare for its next stage.

Chris Newmarker, executive editor of life sciences at MassDevice, brings his Newmarker's Newsmakers highlighting news from Stryker, Heartflow, Hillrom, BardyDx, TransMedics and Imperative Care.
