About Intuitive Surgical, Inc.
Intuitive Surgical is engaged in the designing, manufacturing and marketing of the da Vinci Surgical Systems. The Company’s da Vinci Surgical Systems consist of a surgeon’s console, a patient-side cart, a vision system, wristed instruments and surgical accessories. The da Vinci Surgical System controls Intuitive Surgical endoscopic instruments, including rigid endoscopes, blunt and sharp endoscopic dissectors, scissors, scalpels, forceps/pickups, needle holders, endoscopic retractors, electrocautery, ultrasonic cutters and accessories during a range of surgical procedures. The da Vinci Surgical System translates the surgeon’s natural hand movements on instrument controls at the console into corresponding micro-movements of instruments positioned inside the patient through small puncture incisions, or ports.
The Company’s da Vinci Surgical System provides the surgeon with the intuitive control, range of motion, tissue manipulation capability and three-dimensional (3-D) vision characteristic of open surgery, while simultaneously allowing the surgeon to work through the small ports of minimally invasive surgery (MIS).
As of December 31, 2007, Intuitive Surgical had sold 800 of its da Vinci Surgical Systems.
