ISRG integrates Novadaq's technology (Firefly) into the da Vinci. You need to read NVDQ's newest PR which touts their PILLAR II Results. The da Vinci improvements and adoption/integration of these types of technologies from Novadaq is only making the da Vinci much safer than it already is. It's only a matter of time before all of the studies and numbers come together to silence the critics once and for all.
This is one company I think ISRG should buy - IMO.
I just wanted to clarify why I really think ISRG should be buying this company. Other than being a good investment for ISRG, these types of *safety* PILLAR results should be coming from ISRG rather than NVDQ - thereby directly counteracting much of the recent negative publicity. ISRG has lost way more in market cap in the past few months than it would take to buy this company outright.
