    Student Question


    I'm a student at the University of Virginia, and I'm researching NUVA for a class. Does anyone mind commenting on patent issues for this company? Can a company like Medtronic easily imitate this kind of technology? Basically, what are the barriers to entry for this new procedure/technology that would give NUVA durable competitive advantage?

    Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated. I hope NUVA becomes the next ISRG.
