Intuitive Surgical, Inc. (Intuitive) designs, manufactures and markets da Vinci Surgical Systems, and related instruments and accessories. The Company’s da Vinci Surgical System consists of a surgeon’s console, a patient-side cart and a vision system. The da Vinci Surgical System translates a surgeon’s hand movements, which are performed on instrument controls at a console, into corresponding micro-movements of instruments positioned inside the patient through small incisions or ports.
The da Vinci Surgical System provides its operating surgeons with control, range of motion, tissue manipulation solution and three-dimensional (3-D), high-definition vision. It allows surgeons to work through the small ports enabled by minimally invasive surgery procedures. Its da Vinci Surgery utilizes computational, robotic and imaging technologies. It focuses on five surgical specialties: gynecologic surgery, urologic surgery, general surgery, cardiothoracic surgery, and head and neck surgery.
