Surgery remains one of health care’s most effective means for treating disease.
At Intuitive Surgical, our goal is to harness the power of advanced technology to improve surgery and its outcomes – for surgeons and their patients. We’re passionate about creating new kinds of minimally invasive surgical systems and tools that give surgeons more precision, greater dexterity, extraordinary vision and a much more comfortable and intuitive way to perform life-saving and life-enhancing procedures.
We know surgery can – and should – be less traumatic and invasive for patients. That’s why we research, create, problem-solve and deliver breakthroughs designed to help surgeons advance human health and well being. We believe in the power of hard work, ethical behavior and deep scientific rigor. It’s good practice and good business. We’re proud of what we have accomplished. But we’re not done. Far from it.
da Vinci Xi Surgical System
The da Vinci Xi Surgical System advances minimally invasive surgery (MIS) for patients like never before by offering revolutionary anatomical access, crystal clear 3D HD vision and a platform built for advanced technologies. With this addition, Intuitive Surgical can now offer a full range of da Vinci systems optimized for highly complex, multi-quadrant surgery to simpler, single-quadrant surgery.
The da Vinci Xi Surgical System provides a natural extension of the surgeon’s eyes and hands into the patient. As with all da Vinci Surgical Systems, the surgeon is always in control.
The da Vinci Xi Surgical System combines the functionality of a boom-mounted system with the flexibility of a mobile platform. This hybrid architecture enables placement of the surgical cart at any position around the patient while allowing four-quadrant anatomical access.
Visualizing anatomy in highly-magnified 3D HD is a hallmark of performing surgery with the da Vinci Xi Surgical System. A new digital architecture provides the best surgical image ever developed by Intuitive Surgical.
Take control of advanced and future technologies with the built-in expansion capabilities of the da Vinci Xi surgeon console. The system is designed to seamlessly integrate future innovations, such as advanced instrumentation, software upgrades, and other advancements into one dynamic platform.
Through dedication, collaboration and innovation, our employees strive to create and support technology with the goal of improving patients' lives worldwide. This philosophy means we do everything we can to produce products that provide the best possible outcomes for patients. We firmly believe that by maintaining this focus success will continue to follow. Therefore, the success of Intuitive Surgical is due to its technology, its vision, its staff and foremost, its focus on patients first.

I have been working at Intuitive Surgical full-time (more than 3 years)Pros
The technical challenges range from generic to seriously innovative and there is plenty of opportunity to stretch oneself. Managers are generally respectable and helpful. All of this with the goal of easing some horrible ailment for mankind, what's not to love?Cons
The compensation system is based on your title, length of tenure and what some contract firm tells them is fair for the industry. This is fine if the work you do is comparable to your years of experience but may be too coarse for those outside of the norm.RecommendsApproves of CEO

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks – interviewed at Intuitive Surgical.Interview Details
The interview process is pretty straight forward. The one thing that they should work on is doing their internal interviews first and then external. The job I applied for was filled by an internal candidate. The interview process felt like a waste of time for me since they already had their sights set on someone they wanted to hire. They did offer for me to come back and interview for another position, but I didnt want to be a fill in for whatever requirement they had for interviewees.Interview Questions
