Theator Partners With The Academy for Surgical Coaching to Provide Surgeons With Surgical Intelligence
The Academy for Surgical Coaching will leverage Theator’s smart annotation and video analytics technology to bring surgical performance improvement to the next level
Theator, the Surgical Intelligence platform leveraging AI and computer vision to improve surgeon performance, announced a new partnership with The Academy for Surgical Coaching – a nonprofit organization that equips every surgeon with a Coach to support life-long learning and evaluations of surgical performance. The Academy for Surgical Coaching will utilize Theator’s smart annotation and video analytics technology to enable surgeons to review and learn from their own past surgeries, facilitating improvement so that they enter the next operating room as better surgeons.
Surgeons today no longer have sufficient time to teach trainees, leaving them with limited performance feedback, which is subjective at best and usually confined to the operating room. This issue extends well beyond surgical training: today, even the most skilled and seasoned surgeons rarely get to review key moments from their own surgical procedures, let alone those from other surgeons. Without access to objective, scientific insight into their own performance, surgeons are less likely to widen or deepen their expertise beyond what they personally experience along their career paths.

“Surgical coaching is proven to enhance surgeons’ performance in the operating room,” said Dr. Tamir Wolf, CEO and Co-founder of Theator. “Nevertheless, in recent years, and especially during this pandemic, face-to-face coaching has been neither feasible nor most effective. That’s why we’re excited to partner with the experts at the Academy for Surgical Coaching to enable continuous learning, self-evaluation, and peer-to-peer coaching through our surgical intelligence video-based platform.”
Theator’s innovative Surgical Intelligence platform, powered by advanced AI and computer vision technology, enables surgeons to gain deep scientific insight into their own performance and those of surgeons worldwide. By extracting and annotating every key moment from real-world surgical procedures, the platform improves surgeon performance from every angle – pre-operative preparation and post-operative analysis and debrief – and enables deeper department-wide visibility: raising standards and performance across surgical departments. Now, Theator’s collaboration with the Academy for Surgical Coaching brings the Academy’s esteemed peer surgical coaching to the platform.
