San Francisco-based PeerWell, which makes a mobile app to help patients prepare for surgery, has raised $2.1 million in seed funding in a round led by XSeed Capital.

PeerWell’s PreHab platform helps people who are about to get hip and knee replacement surgeries prioritize their health both physically and mentally before the operations happen. By maximizing pre-op health in the form of educational lessons, step-by-step instructions and peer-to-peer networking, patients use PreHab to ease them through the process. The ultimate goal is to reduce risk (both during and after the surgery), as well as get patients discharged directly home after a joint replacement, which can translate to significant cost savings for physicians who are dealing with bundled payments.
