Sr. Manager Manufacturing Engineering
Multi-Port Systems Southeast

Intuitive has been a pioneer in minimal invasive surgical robotics since 1995. Our product portfolio ranges from the da Vinci surgical system which has been used by thousands of surgeons to deliver a less invasive approach to many types of surgeries, and the endoluminal system which enables biopsies of small, hard to reach nodules in the lungs. Every day Intuitive is working with physicians and hospitals around the world to solve difficult problems in healthcare. In this seminar, I will be highlighting some of Intuitive’ s amazing technology, how it’s manufactured and distributed to hospitals. To deliver our surgical systems and consumables the application of real world mechanical engineering concepts are evident throughout the process and some case studies will be highlighted. I will be bringing with me some system subassemblies and instruments for some interactive show and tell as well. Finally I’ll finish off the discussion highlighting Intuitive’ s facilities and where we’re actively recruiting.

Daniel Olivero is a Sr. Manager of Manufacturing Engineering at Intuitive leading engineering organizations supporting the manufacturing of da Vinci Xi systems in Peachtree Corners, GA and the remanufacturing of da Vinci X systems in Durham, NC. He received is B.S. degree in Mechanical Engineering from University of Florida in 2009 and his M.S. in Mechanical Engineering from Georgia Tech in 2011. He has been in the medical device industry for over a decade in a variety of roles. At Intuitive, Daniel has spent his time in the Process Engineering organization working on advanced technology instruments, new product introduction for Intuitive’ s first remanufactured system, and establishing east coast production facilities in both Durham and Peachtree Corners.
