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.

The world has changed in the past few weeks.
We're watching corporations and organizations across the world come out in support of Black lives in droves. Many of those organizations are doing so for the first time in their history.
Farnaz Azmoodeh used to dislike running. She was really, truly, actively not interested.
But after suffering through it for a few months, it's now one of her favorite things to do. "I get so much joy out of it," says Farnaz. The same thing happened when she started making pottery: she says the first month was "terrible" as she struggled to shape the clay with no success but shares that she came to love the process of building after getting through an initial period of learning and adjusting.
