About Peter Francis
Companies & Work
Revolve is building the world’s only surgical robot designed for every operating room. Its simple yet powerful design makes it the only robot that can service the 1M+ abdominal surgeries performed outside of hospitals in the US every year.
The founders met at the top surgical robotics lab in the country where they worked on next-generation surgical tools for the da Vinci Surgical System. Collectively, they’ve worked on medical robots for applications in general surgery, ENT, urology, dentistry and neurosurgery; medical imaging AI (ex-Swift Medical); rehabilitation devices, surgical instruments for pediatrics; the Ford GT; and a lunar rover.
Revolve’s surgical robotics platform has been developed in collaboration with over 50 surgeons, resulting in a system that is just 1% of the size and cost of competitor devices. The robot has been validated through animal testing, and the company has secured LOIs from Buffalo General Hospital and Pearl Women’s Center.
