Intuitive Surgical
Background
Intuitive Surgical, Inc. designs, manufactures, and markets da Vinci surgical systems for various surgical procedures, including urologic, gynecologic, cardiothoracic, general, and head and neck surgeries. Its da Vinci surgical system consists of a surgeon’s console or consoles, a patient-side cart, a 3-D vision system, and proprietary ‘wristed’ instruments.

The company’s 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. It also manufactures a range of EndoWrist instruments, which incorporate wrist joints for natural dexterity for various surgical procedures. Its EndoWrist instruments consist of forceps, scissors, electrocautery, scalpels, and other surgical tools.

In addition, Intuitive Surgical sells various vision and accessory products for use in conjunction with the da Vinci Surgical System as surgical procedures are performed. The company’s accessory products include sterile drapes used to ensure a sterile field during surgery; vision products, such as replacement 3-D stereo endoscopes, camera heads, light guides, and other items.

The company markets its products through sales representatives in the United States, and through sales representatives and distributors in international markets. The company was founded in 1995 and is headquartered in Sunnyvale, California.

Intuitive Surgical Analyst Outlook
A quick look at the numbers of surgeries performed annually in the US, especially who the patients are—most notably their age—is enough to hint at why investors are more than a little overjoyed with their new-found wonder stocks: Intuitive Surgical and MAKO Surgical, both with skyrocketing share values with seemingly no end in sight.
