Established in 1995, Intuitive is developing cutting-edge, robotic-assisted systems to empower hospitals and doctors to make surgeries less invasive than an open approach. Since the success of one of the first robotic-assisted systems — the da Vinci surgical system for general laparoscopic surgery cleared by the FDA, the company has taken robotic-assisted surgery from science fiction to reality. Working continuously with hospitals and doctors, Intuitive creates new, future diagnostic tools, and minimally invasive surgical platforms to solve complicated healthcare challenges globally. The company is pairing human ingenuity with technology and, in 2019, has completed over 7.2 million Da Vinci procedures across 67 countries. Headquartered in Sunnyvale, California, Intuitive has principal offices globally, marketing products directly in the U.S., Japan, Western Europe, South Korea, and indirectly through distributors in other countries. The company is an equal employment opportunity employer offering various perks, additional benefits, and other employee resources to help its employee's health and welfare.
