Capstan Medical Attracts $31.4 Million in Series B Funding

Oct 16, 2023

Company will use the money to bring the benefits of robotics to structural heart, one of the few remaining untouched areas of medicine. Michael Barbella, Managing Editor10.16.23 Capstan Medical  has received an oversubscribed $31.4 million Series B investment led by  Eclipse . Additional participating investors include Intuitive Ventures and Puma Venture Capital, a new firm founded by Amit Hazan, a veteran Wall Street medical technology analyst, and Dr. Vipul Patel, a renowned robotic surgeon who has performed more robotic procedures than any other surgeon worldwide. Since 2020, Capstan Medical has carefully curated a team of heart valve implant experts and seasoned robotics engineers to address the rising need for minimally invasive options for treating heart valve disease. CEO Maggie Nixon brings more than 20 years of experience at Intuitive Surgical to the company, and co-founder and Chief Technology Officer Dan Wallace has dedicated his career to creating products that reduce the pain and complications of surgery, having developed solutions at Intuitive Surgical, Hansen Medical, Auris Health, Cephea Valve Technologies and more. Heart disease continues to be a leading cause of death in the U.S., claiming nearly 700,000 lives annually. While many cardiovascular treatments have improved and become less invasive, traditional heart valve surgery remains highly invasive and is associated with lengthy recovery times. Given the risks associated with open heart surgeries, many patients delay treatment, unwittingly increasing their health risks as well as the chances they may be too weak later on for open heart surgery. “Open heart surgery is traumatic and an unrealistic treatment option for many—there is significant need for better options for patients to address their heart valve disease. Capstan Medical is creating a new standard of heart valve intervention by bringing a minimally invasive treatment option to patients who need it most,” Nixon said. “There is rarely such strong alignment between a group of investors and a leadership team on the value robotics can bring to minimizing patient impact, while enabling exceptional outcomes.” Catheter-based treatment enables heart valve disease to be addressed with a small incision in the groin, without stopping the heart or opening the chest as required in open heart surgery. This technique speeds recovery from months to weeks and is likely tolerable for even the sickest of patients. Yet, there are no commercially available catheter-based mitral and tricuspid valve replacement options on the market today—less than 2% of the more than 5 million eligible patients are currently receiving treatment—leaving a rapidly growing patient population with few options to treat their valve disease before it is too late. Along with its Series B investment, Capstan Medical also appointed Eclipse partner Justin Butler to its board. “The Eclipse team is thrilled to support and work with the Capstan Medical team to solve a massively unmet need in medicine,” Butler said. “The team’s understanding of structural heart intervention and surgical robotics will help millions of people across the globe better recover from heart valve disease and live healthier, longer lives.” In the coming months, Santa Cruz, Calif.-based Capstan Medical will expand its engineering, clinical development and operations teams to progress the technology through the next stage of development into first human use. Founded in 2020, Capstan Medical is developing next-generation heart valve implants and a catheter-based robotic delivery platform. With more than $4 billion in assets under management, 70-plus portfolio companies, and investors with deep operating expertise in technology, manufacturing, supply chain, logistics, healthcare, and consumer products, Eclipse is a leading U.S. venture capital firm. Eclipse partners with companies that make physical industries more efficient, resilient, and profitable.
