Who We Are
Medical Realities was formed in 2015 by an expert team of surgeons, designers, and technologists to address the shortcomings of traditional 2D curricula with cutting-edge immersive teaching and training solutions.
Medical Realities is a multi-award-winning platform for immersive surgical training using interactive 360° video and still photography.
Founded in 2016, Medical Realities has made a name for itself by creating the World’s largest surgical VR video content library. Initially, we broadcast the World’s first VR surgery to 60,000 viewers globally and trailblazed by providing a high degree of interactivity.
In recognition of the power of our training content, the Royal College of Surgeons has accredited the Medical Realities platform. We remain the World’s largest publisher of 360° video surgeries.
