As part of our ongoing effort to promote U.S. Manufacturing, we highlight each month products and companies that provide innovative and unique products that make a difference in people’s lives. We encourage our readership to both buy and promote products made in America. Here’s our hip find for the month:
If you have ever had doubts about surgery and the capability of surgeons while under the knife, than Intuitive Surgical’s daVinci Surgical System should put your worries to rest. This robotic surgical machine can make incursions much smaller than a regular surgeon to minimize scarring. Intuitive Surgical’s da Vinci® Surgical System combines superior 3D high definition vision with the patented EndoWrist® Instruments allowing for enhanced dexterity, precision and control. The end result: a breakthrough in surgical capabilities.
“The idea of surgical robotics was little more than a curiosity until 1999, the year Intuitive Surgical introduced the da Vinci® Surgical System. Today, Intuitive Surgical is the global leader in the rapidly emerging field of robotic-assisted minimally invasive surgery. Since its inception, the company has consistently provided surgeons and hospitals with the tools needed to improve clinical outcomes and to help patients return to active and productive lives”.
With its corporate headquarters located in Sunnyvale, California, Intuitive Surgical serves customers throughout the United States and internationally, providing technology and procedural innovation across cardiac, thoracic, urology, gynecologic, colorectal, pediatric and general surgical disciplines. Since its first da Vinci System shipment, Intuitive Surgical has expanded its installed base to more than 1,936 academic and community hospital sites.
“Intuitive Surgical is proud to be fulfilling its mission to extend the benefits of minimally invasive surgery to the broadest possible range of patients, while providing extraordinary value for its customers, investors and employees.”
The da Vinci can and will improve surgeries for all hospitals. It is just one medical advance of many and can be improved on to maybe one day be completely automatic.
