Robotic-assisted surgery was little more than a medical curiosity until 1999, the year Intuitive Surgical introduced the da Vinci® Surgical System. Today, Intuitive Surgical is the global leader in robotic-assisted minimally invasive surgery. The company provides surgeons and hospitals with the tools needed to improve clinical outcomes and help patients return to active and productive lives.
Headquartered in Sunnyvale, California, Intuitive Surgical serves customers throughout the United States and internationally, providing minimally invasive technology used in cardiac, urology, gynecologic, thoracic, colorectal and general surgery procedures.
The da Vinci Xi: The da Vinci Xi is the next frontier for minimally invasive surgery. With this addition, Intuitive Surgical® can now offer a full range of da Vinci Systems optimized for highly complex, multi-quadrant surgery and simpler, single-quadrant surgery.
da Vinci Surgical System: The da Vinci® Surgical System enables surgeons to perform delicate and complex operations through a few small incisions. The da Vinci System consists of several key components, including: an ergonomically designed console where the surgeon sits while operating, a patient-side cart where the patient is positioned during surgery, interactive robotic arms, a 3D HD vision system, and proprietary EndoWrist® instruments.
da Vinci is powered by robotic technology that allows the surgeon’s hand movements to be scaled, filtered and translated into precise movements of the EndoWrist instruments working inside the patient’s body.
da Vinci Si Surgical System: The da Vinci Si System retains and builds on the core technology at the heart of the existing da Vinci and da Vinci S™ Systems
da Vinci Single-Site: da Vinci® Single-Site® Surgery enables surgeons to operate through a small incision in the patient’s umbilicus during a cholecystectomy, benign, hysterectomy or salpingo-oophorectomy. The end result: virtually scarless surgery.
EndoWrist Instruments: Intuitive Surgical’s EndoWrist® Instruments are designed to provide surgeons with natural dexterity while operating through small incisions. Most EndoWrist instruments are modeled after the human wrist, offering a greater range of motion than the human hand.
