About Intuitive Surgical
Intuitive, headquartered in Sunnyvale, California, was founded in 1995 to create innovative, robotic-assisted systems that help empower doctors and hospitals to make surgery less invasive than an open approach. Since da Vinci became one of the first robotic-assisted systems available for general laparoscopic surgery, it’s taken robotic-assisted surgery from concept to reality.
Working with doctors and hospitals, Intuitive is continuing to develop new, minimally invasive surgical platforms and future diagnostic tools to help solve complex healthcare challenges around the world. Innovating for minimally invasive care is the passion that drives Intuitive.
Intuitive believes that minimally invasive care is life enhancing care. By combining ingenuity and intelligent technology, they expand the potential of physicians to heal without constraints.
Intuitive provides comprehensive program services, training pathways and technologies for surgeons and Operating Room staff, including simulations for skills and procedures. Through professional education, practice and peer guidance, they invest in the people who bring da Vinci surgery to life.
Device Technologies delivers this robotic education program, in partnership with Intuitive and healthcare providers, in Asia. This allows healthcare professionals to work with da Vinci Surgery Systems in high quality educational environments.
More than 500 Surgeons in Asia have undertaken da Vinci education to become robotic surgeons.
