Intuitive Surgical, Inc. Research Report

On December 19, 2013, Intuitive Surgical, Inc. (Intuitive Surgical) reported results from a national, multi-institutional database study, which showed that readmission and complication rates were significantly lower for robotic-assisted prostate surgery than for open prostate surgery. According to the Company, the retrospective study utilized the National Surgical Quality Improvement (NSQIP) database to analyze data on patients who received a prostatectomy in 2011. The Company stated that a total of 5,471 patients were included in the study, of which 1,097 (20%) had an open procedure and 4,374 (80%) had a minimally invasive robotic-assisted procedure. "Readmissions for Medicare patients alone currently add $17.4 billion each year in health care spending," said Lead Investigator, Robert Nadler MD, Northwestern Medicine Vice Chair of Urology. "The findings from this study show that beyond the patient benefit, robotic-assisted surgery may be relevant to reducing health care costs as it results in reduced readmission rates compared to open surgery."
