Titan Medical and JNJ Partnership or Acquisition

13 hours ago in Johnson & Johnson board

There is a rumor going around that JNJ may be in the process of partnering with Titan or even working on something more substantial. Can any JNJ employees with knowledge confirm whether this is true or not?

I can't see anything like this being real considering the partnership with Alphabet (Google) and JNJ. Verb surgical is working in stealth mode and appear to be doing their own thing. I don't know why JNJ would need anything at all from Titan.

On the flip-side, I've heard this from a couple of …

Nevro vs. Stimwave

15 hours ago in Nevro board

Stryker wants proof of concept. Saluda is yet to have shown that but admittley so, they do have a cool system that Saluda clinical trial sites are speaking very favorably about. I think the company that is showing growth numbers, despite them being small in comparison to the big four, is Nuvectra. With sacral coming in Q4, Nuvectra offers potentially, more than any other player right now and is the front runner for acquisition by stryker

Depuy Attune use in Ireland

17 hours ago in Depuy Synthes board

I'm not making a joke with this question. I'm sincerely wondering why there are so many Attune MAUDE reports in Ireland and so much less (relatively speaking) here in the states? Obviously there are more procedures in the U.S. than Ireland so this makes it odd.

Is the technique that much worse in Ireland or do the reps in the U.S. just not report them on a regular basis like they do in Ireland?

Stryker and Novadaq Meeting

Blame the ERP

18 hours ago in Patterson Dental Supply board

The ERP sucks but does management have to blame a bad quarter on it? Have some accountability and take the blame for mismanagement of the dental side of the business.

One thing for sure is the ERP isn't making sales reps more effective. It's a headache but Walchirk should blame himself for the bad quarter and not realizing how hard it would be to transition to this new system.
