Intuitive Surgical, Inc. designs, manufactures and markets da Vinci Surgical Systems, advanced robotic surgery systems. This is a large company with a 54 Billion dollar market cap but I believe it has a long way to go. There is evidence that demand is growing as the company’s overall installed base rose 13% year-over-year which should accelerate sales of accessories and consumables for their systems. If accelerated growth can continue now could be a fantastic time to buy ISRG.

Intuitive Surgical reported a 15% rise in procedure volume for the first quarter. And the placement of 185 new da Vinci systems—the biggest rise since 2010—points to higher demand ahead. Although upgrades and trade-ins factored into demand, the company’s overall installed base still rose 13% year-over-year. General surgery, particularly hernia repair and colorectal procedures, continue to drive growth, although strong early adoption for bariatric procedures also contributed to growth. But the company is also seeing strong international demand across indications. International system placement, aided in part by more favorable currency exchange, doubled from a year ago.

Perhaps the most exciting news from the company is its upcoming flex catheter system, designed to go deep into the lung and take biopsies. The company is planning an FDA 510(k) filing this year, paving the way for a launch in the next nine months or so. The company also anticipates the launch of the da Vinci SP (for single port procedures) later this year.

That’s a lot going on, but management continues to caution that they expect more competition to appear in the months ahead, a reference primarily to Medtronics’ (NYSE: MDT) robotics platform that it hopes to launch outside the U.S. later this year. (Medtronic management did reference some delays, however, in their last call). Verb Surgical, the joint venture of Johnson & Johnson (NYSE: JNJ) and Alphabet (Nasdaq: GOOGL), could also become a factor with its computerized surgery platform, but it is still in the prototype stage.
