I just tweeted the news to Herb Greenberg, the original guy who broke the news and sunk the stock, and Jim Cramer, another CNBC guy who probably shorted the stock.
There are about 30 doctors in that letter versus one old guy. Let's see who wins the battle. GLTA
I am one of those who performs Da Vinci Robotic Gynecoloic surgical procedures at least 5-6 every week for past 3 years. I feel that to perform these procedures in experinced hands are SAFE with QUICK recovery. Like anything else EXPERINCE AND PRACTICE are very much needed.
How comfortable do you feel allowing a "doctor" to perform a surgical procedure of any type on you after he has twice demonstrated that he does not know how to properly spell the word "experience". Kind of scary, isn't it?
Can anyone with a stocktwits account post this on the ISRG thread? Let the trading community know, and it will also be on the Yahoo marketpulse for ISRG.
I wonder why this is not in the headlines for the stock. Will it be out tomorrow and will any broker respond in kind?
Because these groups of surgeons have no credibility, much like a #$%$ sticking up for its pimp.
I suspect these surgeons fall into groups, 1) they have a vested interest in ISRG and Robotic Surgery doing well. For example, they have a working relationship with ISRG, they act as consultants or proctors, or they are shareholders in ISRG and are therefore, not impartial. OR 2) these surgeons work for hospitals and are employed by them and paid by them. Obviously, these surgeons pay is based on the amount of revenue they bring into their institutions and the extra $2500 per case is a MAJOR CONFLICT OF INTEREST.
The JAMA article was peer reviewed, non biased, OBJECTIVE scientific evidence. The LETTER you site is just SUBJECTIVE FEELING, ie #$%$
