Can TransEnterix dethrone Intuitive Surgical in the robotic surgery race?

TransEnterix just announced a pathetic sales quarter, only selling 1 Senhance robot. To the OP, how can TransEnterix "Dethrone" us if they can't even selling a robot? They'll be closing their doors by December!

The New Hiring Standard at Intuitive Surgical

1 month ago

I see nothing wrong with this strategy. The kids get good sales training at companies like Enterprise and come in willing to learn. We teach them our way of doing things and they aren't jaded by previous device companies who may not train their reps very well.

It could be much worse.
