Intuitive Surgical Declines as Revenue Misses Estimates

Intuitive Surgical Inc., the maker of a $1.5 million robotic surgery system, fell the most in three months after third-quarter profit declined on lower sales of its devices and related equipment.

Revenue decreased 7.2 percent to $499 million, missing the average estimate of $525.9 million from 18 analysts compiled by Bloomberg. Sunnyvale, California-based Intuitive sold 101 da Vinci robot systems compared with 155 a year earlier, according to a statement yesterday.
