Medtronic Enters Robotic Surgery Market with Mazor Robotics Agreement

4 months ago

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!

Nevro Senza vs. Medtronic

4 months ago

This is exciting news! However, the data suggests the patient would be able to walk 40% more steps per minute with HF10 therapy.

The Medtronic Spine Downfall

4 months ago

Well this time is different. Omar made it official with Mazor and is going all in on spine so you crybabies can't complain any longer. Omar has no excuses either. The big splash at NASS is only the start.

Medtronic Puerto Rico Recalls

4 months ago

The Juncos, Puerto Rico plant is responsible for manufacturing the ICDs that led to the recent recall. Talking heads say the hurricane last year isn't to blame. So what's the real story here? Potential arcing inside the device is a big deal and led to many being removed prophylactically. The FDA hasn't closed the issue either.

Try explaining this to a surgeon after the BSC rep came in an trashed us about the recall. Pulling product out of a hospital and explaining the situation to a customer is …

How can I disable AirWatch location tracking on my iPad?

Medtronic combined bag position?

Medtronic doesn't have to lay-off or restructure if they combine sales positions. It's genius.

Kevin T. Foley and Medtronic

The new data came out and it's tough to tell if things have changed. Medtronic USA reduced payments but look at Vascular...

Employee engagement survey

Pretty insightful post and not terribly off from what has happened at Medtronic over the last two years.

Medtronic Reveal LINQ

7 months ago

I disagree my friend. I end up being the one who deals with the surgeons when the patient returns with an infection at the implant site, pocket revisions, explants. My favorite is when Reveal erodes through the skin. Great conversations with your customers when that happens.
