“We saw immediate results in our draping, docking and turnover metrics. Within just two days of their [Genesis] consultation, we saw a reduction of our docking time from 23 minutes to 9 minutes. They have trained our clinical team to successfully build a robotic program that is efficient, safe and high quality.”

Nothing in Intuitive Surgical training curricula makes expressed or implied promises or commitments to the persons attending. This includes any promise or commitment that the trainee will be provided any specific product or technology in future or that the trainee will be certified to perform a procedure related to the curriculum.

Some of the training described in Intuitive Surgical promotions may be provided by organizations or entities other than Intuitive.

Surgeon proctors are independent contractors. The prices listed for proctoring are for services rendered by the independent surgeon proctors. A list of surgeon proctors can be provided upon request. Intuitive Surgical does not take responsibility for proctoring services provided by independent surgeon proctors. The hospital/surgeon purchases the proctoring service as part of training they have independently determined to be part of their credentialing requirement; Intuitive Surgical’s role is merely to coordinate between the hospital/surgeon and the proctor. The proctors and the hospital/surgeon are always free to negotiate with each other directly.

Third-party products shown interacting with the da Vinci System and its instrumentation have been validated by Intuitive for use with the da Vinci System. Validation is for compatibility only and does not imply endorsement of the product by Intuitive.
