You can thank Intuitive Surgical for robot surgeons. The Sunnyvale, Calif., company has been pioneering the field for two decades. Intuitive’s da Vinci robotic surgery machines give human surgeons control over four surgical arms—and human surgeons like using them. Intuitive’s stock and revenue have soared over the past two years owing to strong global demand for the systems. The company’s market value has shot up more than 70% so far in 2017.
