MISSION

Making Surgery Safer

We embrace a 'one-size-fits-one' coaching paradigm made scalable through technology. Our insights fortify the entire network, enhancing its safety and resilience.

We work for a future where surgery evokes the same trust as stepping onto an airplane – a universally consistent experience.

"The OR Black Box was created to make surgery more transparent, precise, predictable and ultra safe. Our goal is to replace dogmas and traditions with data-driven decisions. To promote the culture of high-reliability, team collaboration and psychological safety. We want to change the way we study, teach and practice surgery and continuously improve."
