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.

- No OfferNegative ExperienceAverage Interview
When speaking to the recruiter at a job fair, I was told that I hadn't done enough engineering classes, even though they stated they would recruit sophomores. The recruiter was rude at first, asking me briskly for my resume and not introducing herself or shaking my hand. She proceeded to talk down to me, saying how I wasn't trying hard enough classes and assuming I wasn't motivated to do extra lab work or learn more about the field. I was also told that I need to do hard classes early on and senior year to make sure I wasn't struggling to graduate. For context, I could graduate in 3 years if it wasn't for the sequential nature of engineering courses; I will not be struggling to get the required number of credits. Additionally, she hadn't even looked at my resume, just looked at my graduation date and assumed I hadn't done anything engineering-related before. I was basically given career advice and not taken seriously about my interest in the company. When I asked about internships, she basically told me I wasn't qualified because I'm a sophomore without even looking at my resume, where she could have seen that I have worked on engineering projects more advanced than "rolling a marble down a hallway to determine its speed" (an actual example she gave when saying they wanted more experienced interns). I am at a very high level institution. While I may not be the craziest person there with the most elaborate course schedule here, this does not mean I do not push myself or that I will automatically not be qualified because I am not a senior. She might have been right - I may not be qualified at this point in time - but talking down to someone at a job fair is not a good way of recruitment. I was highly interested in this company on paper, but I will not apply for internships this year or any other year of my university career, nor am I likely to want to work here in the future. Warning, college students: beware the condescending recruiters!
- "You should make sure you take hard classes and get involved in lab work. You seem like you have an idea of where you want to be. But good luck at our company, where we won't take you seriously." (not exact words) Answer Question
