Medtronic Recalls

17 hours ago

probably because most full time employees and managers don’t even work 20 hours a weeks, from what I saw, while treating the contractors like doormats and an easy excuse to save money after recalling about 160, 000 and hiding this from once

CVG Falling Apart?

1 day ago

Fantastic how we try to be on the forefront of technology with iPhones syncing with our pacers but then recall 157,000 dual chambers because they lose the ability to pace. This goes back to the company trying to cut costs but be on the leading edge. Hint: it doesn't work that way.

IN.PACT Admiral FDA Alert

These results have been known about for a while and hasn't changed usage in my region at all. Much to do about nothing.

Stealth Station Recalls

5 days ago

The field has known this for a while but there was another one as well more recently.

Medtronic is recalling the Synergy Cranial Software and StealthStation S7 Cranial Software used with the StealthStation Surgical Navigation System due to reports of incorrect information displaying during biopsy procedures that could result in serious or life-threatening patient harm.

I will say, this robotics platform has one of the larger R&D divisions within Medtronic behind it. I only wish the launch was in the US first and not OUS. The concern is if there are any significant challenges, we may not see it in the states until '22....

Medtronic CEO Compensation

7 days ago

Omar's JP Morgan presentation last week was embarrassing. In fact so embarrassing that his presentation caused the stock to tank. A CEO should be more polished and not have everyone fearing that he's going to **** up the stock because he can't communicate. Look how much money he makes.

Boost sales with a simple 7 step pre-call plan

2 years ago

Pre-call plans are one of the most effective tools a sales rep can use in preparing for a sales call. However, in our experience, sales reps bypass using them unless they happen to be on a field ride with their manager.

Medtronic RTG - Restorative Therapies Group

2 weeks ago

I found this about layoffs in RTG. Outside of Spine, the rest of RTG is doing great. Omar is pushing the Mazor story to cover up the rest of Spine's lackluster business. I've also heard Mazor's corporate employees are on the clock.

It's a 3cc microstimulator and allows MRI anywhere in the body. Marketing told us it won't hit the market until after 2020 so you do the math. I'm being conservative in my guess.

Let’s hope Omar touches on the robotic program at his JPMorgan talk tomorrow. It’s guaranteed to be a question from analysts.

Selling against Nevro

3 weeks ago

Your tech has not “caught up”. You’re just lucky that Nevro is run by an egomaniac that has no clue how to manage an SCS sales organization. If Nevro had been launched correctly, you would be begging your docs for their scraps. Instead, Nevro has burned through so many reps, and pissed off so many customers, that your cheap-***, sorry therapy is appealing compared to the Nevro BS. Happy New Year!
