Intuitive Surgical, Inc. designs, manufactures, and markets da Vinci Surgical Systems and related instruments and accessories. Products da Vinci Surgical System A da Vinci Surgical System consists of a surgeon’s console, a patient-side cart, and a vision system. The da Vinci Surgical System translates a surgeon’s natural hand movements, which are performed on instrument controls at a console, into corresponding micro-movements of instruments positioned inside the patient through small incisions, or ports. The da Vinci Surgical System is designed to provide its operating surgeons with intuitive control, range of motion, fine tissue manipulation capability and three dimensional (3-D), high-definition (HD) vision while allowing surgeons to work through the small ports enabled by minimally invasive surgery (MIS) procedures. The company has commercialized three generations of da Vinci Surgical System—the da Vinci Si Surgical System, the da Vinci S Surgical System, and the standard da Vinci Surgical System. da Vinci Surgical Systems include the following components: Surgeon’s Console: The da Vinci Surgical System allows surgeons to operate while seated at an ergonomic console viewing a 3-D image of the surgical field. The surgeon’s fingers grasp instrument controls below the display with the surgeon’s hands naturally positioned relative to his or her eyes. Using electronic hardware, software, algorithms, and mechanics, the company’s technology translates the surgeon’s hand movements into precise and corresponding real-time micro movements of the EndoWrist instruments positioned inside the patient. Patient-Side Cart: The patient-side cart holds electromechanical arms that manipulate the instruments inside the patient. Approximately four arms attached to the cart could be positioned as appropriate, and then locked into place. Approximately two arms hold the company’s EndoWrist instruments, one representing the surgeon’s left hand and one representing the surgeon’s right hand. A third arm positions the endoscope, allowing the surgeon to move, zoom, and rotate his or her field of vision. An optional fourth instrument arm extends surgical capabilities by enabling the surgeon to add a third EndoWrist instrument to perform additional tasks. The fourth instrument arm is a standard integrated feature on the da Vinci Si and da Vinci S Surgical Systems and is available as a field upgrade on three-arm standard da Vinci and three-arm da Vinci S Surgical Systems and da Vinci Si-e Surgical Systems. 3-D Vision System: The company’s vision system includes its InSite 3-D endoscope with two separate vision channels linked to two separate color monitors through video cameras and specialized image processing hardware. da Vinci Skills Simulator: The Skills Simulator is a practice tool for the da Vinci Si Surgical System that gives a user the opportunity to practice his or her facility with the surgeon console controls. The Skills Simulator incorporates 3-D, physics-based computer simulation technology to immerse the user within a virtual environment. Majority da Vinci Skills Simulators have been sold in connection with new da Vinci Si Surgical System sales. Firefly Fluorescence Imaging: The company offers its Firefly product for use with the da Vinci Si Surgical System. This imaging capability combines a fluorescent dye with a specialized da Vinci camera head, endoscope and laser-based illuminator to allow surgeons to identify vasculature in three dimensions beneath tissue surfaces to visualize critical anatomy. Adoption of Firefly is progressing with use across the categories of urology, gynecology, and general surgery. In 2013, the company received the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) 510(k) clearance to market its Firefly fluorescence imaging product for real-time imaging of bile ducts (cystic duct, common bile duct, and common hepatic duct). Instruments and Accessories EndoWrist Instruments: The company manufactures various instruments, majority of which incorporate wrist joints for natural dexterity, with tips customized for various surgical procedures. EndoWrist instruments are offered in various sizes,
