Over 2000 hospitals use Da Vinci, and the petition has a meager 30 surgeons signing off on a desperate appeal??
Look at the bottom of this so-called surgeon group letter of appeal (really a paid press release or pump PR): The contact is Dr. Devin Garza of Austin, Texas. He is one of ISRG's pioneer surgeons, practicing DaVinci surgery exclusively. Of course he has ALL to lose with the recent negative ACOG statement. That said, this is becoming nothing more than a desperate PR campaign to discredit Breeden.....hardly a petition of the surgeon masses against ACOG's statement . Also, you would think that Garza would've had the sense to recruit at least 500 surgeons to sign this "petition" in the effort to make a meaningful impact on the ACOG. Well, the truth is that he likely couldn't find that many to support a technology riddled with lawsuits.
What a total joke, as are the longs hoping from a paid shill letter induced stock bounce.
Did you read Breenens letter??? This is NOT an official view of ACOGs. Just the opinion of Dr. Breenen who happens to be the president this year. It's a rotating position. i.e. He is using his position as president to make such a statement.
Did you read the surgeon response?? "we believe any lay person could see the benefits of the improved visualization of 3-D technology, the dexterity provided by wristed instrumentation, and the precision enabled by a computer-assisted interface."
The longs will keep making irrelevant comparisons to calm themselves down. But these are people that bought the stocks at 100 or so and are not logical or smart enough to take the huge profit. They simply don't know when to quit a lucky ride.
And cowboys know that horses are a far better way to get around than in a car. Cars cost money, can't eat grass wherever they stop for the night, eventually wear out, and cars bump into each other and don't cause deaths. Yet horses can be fed on the grass they are standing in at night, never kill their riders from an accident, breed to make more horses (let's see cars do that), and cost the most per mile of travel outside of anything other than human foot. Gee, we should all be riding horses to work and the grocery store. Old technology is far superior!
