Some truth to that. Coming from a medical family, there is always the pull of the new surgical toy to try and also the pressure to be cutting edge (sorry for the pun) to differentiate the surgeon. The tide is turning on that for now.
I just do not see a return to greater growth until after next year. When the mass of people get dumped from insurance provided by the employer, the turmoil in the market is going to pressure conservative organizations (insurance and hospitals) to contain expenditures until the Obamacare mess is sorted out.
