What's the Outlook for Intuitive Surgical?

Although most real-world applications so far have been industrial, Intuitive Surgical (NASDAQ: ISRG) has been slowly changing that. The company's da Vinci surgical systems only assist trained humans, but they have become synonymous with the term "robotic surgery." After so much success, interested investors will want to determine whether the future can be as bright as the past, or if the combination of COVID, regulatory hurdles, and competition will chip away at the dominance this company has established since going public in 2000.
