Chief Executive Officer
Peter Carnegie has 14 years of experience in minimally invasive surgery. His robotic surgery experience spans 10 years, primarily in the area of robotic cardiothoracic surgery program development.
While at Intuitive, Carnegie held positions as Cardiothoracic Sales Manager, Clinical Sales Manager and Account Manager. He refined and promoted robotic thoracic surgery with a focus on robotic lobectomy. Currently, robotic thoracic surgery is the fastest growing specialty in the history of robotic surgery. He worked with robotic pioneers in thoracic surgery like Mark Dylewski MD, South Miami Hospital and Robert Cerfolio MD from the University of Alabama Birmingham. Additionally, he refined and promoted the robotic aortic valve procedure featuring percutaneous valve technologies applied robotically through a port-only approach.
Prior to Intuitive, Carnegie worked at Ethicon Endo-Surgery of Johnson & Johnson. Awarded the Douglas McArthur Leadership Award as the 1st Regimental Commander, Peter graduated with an undergraduate degree from the U.S. Military Academy at West Point as a Life Sciences major. He went on to serve as an Armor Officer in three combat tours in the Balkans; two consecutive tours in Bosnia and one in Kosovo. A decorated veteran, Peter holds the distinction of being the only Armor lieutenant in the history of the Armor Branch to earn the Order of St. Maurice, the Patron Saint of the Infantry.
His achievements in the for profit world are balanced by his commitment to giving back to the community. He spearheaded the development and execution of the Medical Robotics Technology Symposium (MRTS) in partnership with the United Negro College Fund (UNCF), the Links Inc., Professional Opportunities Program for Students (POPS), the University of Central Florida, the University of South Florida, and Valencia College. The MRTS provides college and high school students with rigorous hands on and academic exposure to cutting edge robotic technology used in neuro-spine, urology, GYN/GYN Oncology, general, ENT, and cardiothoracic surgery.
