Medtronic about to have problems with adverse events from Mazor? This is what happens when untrained reps cover cases and sales teams push devices as a marketing tool. How many times have we heard Mazor's reps are barely out of diapers?

Perfect timing if you're a lawyer. The largest medical device company in the world acquires you and all of a sudden more adverse events start popping up. Coincidence? I think not.

Medtronic just acquired Mazor for $1.64 billion.

I'm with Zimmer and I want to let you know that Medtronic and Mazor don't have to worry about ROSA because our world-class engineers insisted on requiring k-wires even though no one will have them once ROSA hits the market. When's that? Who the f knows!

I haven't seen it yet but will at NASS. It sounds cool but are they pretending there's a problem when there really isn't? Surgeons have been using guidewires forever and I rarely hear them complain. Scrubs get it, surgeons get it. They're safe and cost effective.

The big robotic surgery push is adding some unnecessary cost. How are you going to address the cost effective argument with a surgery center or hospital when guidewires are insanely cheap compared to what it will cost for the Mazor X with Stealth integration?

Good luck with that!

Can someone knowledgeable in the subject respond to this?

One would only assume that robotic surgery is the wave of the future and as surgical technology evolves, surgeons, scrub techs and facilities will have to get on board however would be nice to know for those of us interested in the space to know how much weight this "guidewire argument" really holds?

Is the Mazor X Stealth Edition going to be everything Medtronic is hyping? Big introduction in September.

Acquisition imminent.

There is no reason for Medtronic to purchase Mazor when they already control a significant amount of: pricing, distribution and sales. With all that power, why would Omar feel the need to acquire everything? It seems like a great deal for Medtronic and kind of a pain in the *** for Mazor.

Is Medtronic ever concerned with Mazor Robotics having 25 yr old reps with no prior OR or Spine experience Fully Plan and Run a Robotic Spine Procedure?

Nope. That's the new normal in medical device sales and is hasn't stopped Mazor from performing over 33k cases and achieving 27% growth.

And what's the issue with having hot chicks in the o.r. with you???

post

Has there been confirmation Medtronic has an internal robotics program? I think most of that is rumor and the Mazor deal is their way of entering the market without developing a product on their own.

Yes, it's called Hugo.
