We Learned About the Many Innovations at Intuitive
PowerToFly is lucky enough to partner with some truly amazing companies but sometimes we work with an organization that is not only changing but truly saving people's lives. One such company is Intuitive, maker of the da Vinci surgical system. Intuitive truly is the pioneer and a global leader in robotic-assisted, minimally invasive care and it was fantastic to hear directly from the women tech leaders and allies who make this all possible.
Hosted by PowerToFly's Amanda Bender, our impressive lineup of speakers from Intuitive included:
- Bob DeSantis, SVP/GM Instruments and Accessories
- Catherine Mohr, President of the Intuitive Foundation, and distinguished TedTalk speaker
- Maggie Nixon, VP Product Quality
- Philip Thompson, VP Product Design
- Iman Jeddi, VP Systems Manufacturing & Sustaining Engineering
- Nicky Goodson, Director NPV & Packaging Engineering
Catherine delivered the evening's keynote address, entitled "Surgery's Past, Present & Robotic Future" and guests had a chance to sign up for a future demo to see the groundbreaking robot in person. Our attendees, also had a chance to take advantage of a fun photo booth while they networked over refreshments.
Intuitive was founded in 1995 to create innovative, robotic-assisted systems that help empower doctors and hospitals to make surgery less invasive than an open approach. Since da Vinci® became one of the first robotic-assisted systems cleared by the FDA for general laparoscopic surgery, it's taken robotic-assisted surgery from "science fiction" to reality.
