Lead Unity Developer

full-time Touch Surgery London

Digital Surgery has a vision: to save lives through the power of pioneering visualisation, data and Artificial Intelligence

Our first product, Touch Surgery, successfully revolutionised the surgical training space. The Touch Surgery platform is an interactive surgical simulator for healthcare professionals; providing a realistic and detailed guide to every step of a procedure. Users can quickly learn surgery, instantly test their knowledge, and rehearse for surgery. With over 4 MILLION downloads, we are the global leader in mobile surgical training and our platform is the largest and fastest growing community of surgeons learning and rehearsing operations digitally.

Having revolutionised surgical training, we moved inside the Operating Room to help surgical teams and health systems optimise surgical services through data and analytics.

With our award winning Touch Surgery application and newly built GoSurgery product, it is the dawn of digital surgery. Digital Surgery has created a digital data-driven ecosystem that uses the latest and cutting-edge technologies like AI, augmented reality and computer vision to modernize surgical training, orchestrate surgical teams in the OR and deliver safer surgery around the world
