Facing health difficulties at a young age, Surbhi Sarna determined early in life that she wanted to change the status quo for female healthcare.
“I’m generally not very good at accepting things the way they are,” Surbhi says in today’s interview.
Several years ago, she tapped into that impatience to create nVsion Medical. Backed now by venture capital, the company is running clinical trials for a new imaging device to address the leading cause of infertility—fallopian tube blockage. The company is also working on tests to diagnosis ovarian cancer early.
“Our long term goal is to create the pap smear for ovarian cancer,” she says after painting the bleak outlook those with the disease face today.
Surbhi has been listed as one of Forbes Magazine’s 30 under 30 in Science and Healthcare. Today she tells her story.
