LONDON – September 16, 2019 – Today we announced the expansion of our executive team with the appointment of Kim Parkins as Vice President of Client Solutions & Partnerships for North America.
“Over the last year, we have expanded Fundamental Surgery into the United States and had the privilege of working with prestigious institutions, such as the Mayo Clinic and UCLA, to help their surgeons and trainees practice and improve their skills as well as work with the organizations to create new simulations and capabilities for our platform,” said Richard Vincent, co-founder and CEO of FundamentalVR. “With Kim Parkins’ impressive background and experience in medical device, orthopedics and surgical simulation spaces, we are looking forward to working with him to continue to foster and expand our relationships within the medical community.”
Today, Fundamental Surgery is deployed with a number of medical institutions including Mayo Clinic and UCLA in the U.S., UCLH in the U.K. and Sana in Germany with initial training packages focused on the orthopedic surgical disciplines. The procedures it currently supports include Spinal Pedicle Screw, Total Hip Arthroplasty (Posterior), Total Hip Arthroplasty (Anterior) and Total Knee Arthroplasty. All Fundamental Surgery simulations are accredited by the Royal College of surgeons as an activity that demonstrates sufficient educational value to contribute to individual surgeons’ CPD, for which 6 CPD points can be claimed.
