Intuitive Surgical Tour, March 26, 2015

April 6, 2015

Intuitive Surgical in Sunnyvale hosted a SME SV tour on March 26, 2015 with 30 engineers attending.  Everyone had a “hands-on” operating a surgical robot for training purposes!  The manufacturing was very impressive, completely paperless, and utilized lean principles throughout the plant.

Intuitive Surgical is global technology leader in minimally invasive robotic-assisted surgery. The Company’s da Vinci Surgical System enables surgeons to operate minimally invasive through a few small incisions or the belly button from a nearby ergonomic console.  The da Vinci System teatures a 3D HD vision system and tiny wristed instruments that bend and rotate far greater than the human hand. As a result of the technology, da Vinci enables surgeons to operate with enhanced vision, precision and control.
