In 1986 IBM's Thomas J. Watson Research Center and researchers at the University of California, Davis began collaborative development of an innovative system for Total Hip Arthroplasty (THA).On November 7, 1992, newly founded Integrated Surgical Systems, Inc. (ISS), unveiled the ROBODOC® Surgical System which made medical history by assisting in a THA procedure. That year, ISS was awarded the prestigious Computerworld Smithsonian Award for Innovation in the Arts and Sciences for Medicine.ISS became a publicly traded company (NASDAQ - Symbol RDOC) in 1996. In 1997, ISS purchased Innovative Medical Machines International, S.A. (IMMI), manufacturer of the NeuroMate™ System, a robotic device for neurosurgical applications. Later that year, ISS entered into a distribution agreement with Ktec Group in Japan to sell ROBODOC®, ORTHODOC®, and NeuroMate™ systems in Japan.
