Intuitive Surgical and Power Medical Collaborate

Intuitive Surgical Inc. (Sunnyvale, CA) and Power Medical Interventions Inc. (Langhorne, PA) are developing a surgical stapler that can be used with Intuitive's da Vinci robotic system. The attachment will enable the da Vinci to cut and staple tissue. Power Medical will also be the exclusive supplier and manufacturer of the staple reload cartridges for the device.
