Kevin Hykes stepped down as president and CEO of Augmedics, the company said Jan. 31.

Mr. Hykes left the company to "pursue other professional opportunities," according to a news release. Rick Anderson, the company's board chair will oversee interim leadership.

Mr. Hykes joined Augmedics in January 2022 and oversaw milestones including the company's first artificial intelligence application, the acquisition of Surgalign's digital health business and an $82 million Series D financing. During his tenure Augmedics also reached its 5,000th augmented reality-assisted spine surgery.

This is the second time since 2022 that Augmedics shuffled its leadership. In 2022 the company's founder, Nissan Elimelech, stepped down as CEO. When he left, Mr. Hykes took his place.
