Is Medtronic Handling Adverse Events Differently Than Mazor Did?

I do hope Medtronic management is taking note of the adverse events with Mazor and how the company was not reporting them properly. Training for reps and surgeons needs to improve and if Medtronic is the 800 pound gorilla in the medical device industry, they need to take the lead and address these issues head on. This patient story is not a good look for Mazor, Medtronic, and the robotic surgery industry. Clean it up, Medtronic.

The reason we ask for your email address is to ensure the reporting feature is not abused. Once you report a thread a confirmation email will be sent to you requiring that you did in fact mean to do this action. This also gives us a way to get in touch with you privately to discuss your reasoning if we feel the thread has been reported without merit.

Your email address will never be used for any other reason and will never be sold to email marketers.

Now that it appears the entire company is reading this website, maybe corporate can address the ongoing issues with Mazor?

From the Mazor Board -

The reps plan the pedicle screw placements for the robot to position for the patient and surgeon. The surgeon drills as directed by the robot (rep). Mazor will never admit (be honest) on this. It’s SOP for the clinical reps. So many other issues with Mazor and the robot. Needs to be looked into.
