The hottest thing going right now. Loading up with with experienced, successful reps and paying them through the nose. They are sitting on a pile of cash and have great leaders. I look forward to what they do to the others in the space once they launch and how quickly they do it.

Mako is the only play in this market and soon they will work with Stryker's Spine products. Zimmer could be a player but they keep tripping over their own feet.
