ROSA Robot

Any input from reps on how Rosa is being integrated into the sales cycle? Zimmer wanted to take business away from Mazor in Spine but Mazor just released X last week and they appear to be doing great with the help of Medtronic.

Is Rosa even being pushed much yet?

ROSA is growing around the country as the preferred robotic platform for total knees. I know Columbus Regional in the Carolinas just implemented a system and more are in the pike.

Slow and steady is the way to win the race, boyz. ROSA is now the only robotic system with clearance for Brain, Spine and Knee.

The Globus Medical ExceliusGPS is hands down the better option and hospitals are spending actual money on it....unlike the free options from Stryker and Zimmer.

That's great except no one is using it. I know more Mako's sitting in the corner of their storage closet.

You can't say the same for Rosa, now with the brain application --The neurosurgery team at Summit, N.J.-based Overlook Medical Center of Morristown, N.J.-based Atlantic Health System is using the ROSA Brain robot for minimally invasive brain surgery, reports ROI NJ.

Since launch, Stryker has trained over 1,600 surgeons on the Total Knee.

Took long enough to launch. Mako's had like what...a two year head start?

The brain app is cool but the total knee with ROSA is what will make a difference for Zimmer.

At what point do surgeons and hospital administrators wake up and realize spine navigation is a waste of money and a joke?

Well, let's hope not considering we're expecting approval for spine and rolling it out at the end of this year.

There are years of evidence backing up up robotic surgery with the da Vinci. Try finding a good surgeon doing a prostatectomy without a robot these days. You can't.

Spine "robots" though? Tell me what benefit a spine "robot" has on a patient or a case? They are useless.

Prostatectomy is the only davinci procedure for which there was not already a widely adopted, minimally invasive option. There is no data to suggest that performing a particular surgery robotically produces significantly better outcomes than performing the same surgery with the traditional laparoscopic technique.

The same thing could be said about the majority of robotic surgeries performed in other specialties, and yet the hype-train rolls on.

Exactly.

Hanson knows ROSA won't even have an impact in spine until 2020 and then everyone else will be on nex-gen feature sets.

Not having 510(k) for the nexgen ROSA has turned the Zimmer booth at NASS into a cluster f. Good luck answering questions all day at the booth and thanks again to Zimmer leadership for giving us another disadvantage against the competition.
