    Comparing mako to ISRG is ridiculous. What will happen to mako when ISRG engineers write a hip-replacement program.

    • ISRG IS NO COMPETITIVE THREAT

      " The MAKOplasty solution incorporates technologies enabled by an intellectual property portfolio including more than 300 U.S. and foreign, owned and licensed, patents and patent applications. Additional information can be found at www.makosurgical.com . "

    • You are an idiot. People are not comparing MAKO (today) to ISRG (today). They are comparing MAKO (today) to ISRG (8 or 9 years ago).

      Can you comprehend that, you idiot?

      MAKO is on the same path as ISRG 8 or 9 years ago.

      Psst...you do realize that ISRG was not profitable earlier on, right? They didn't have enough systems out there to support their fixed costs at one time. See this procedure count shown below? Where do you think this is headed in 5,6,7,8 years, you moron?
      What's smarter...to get in now while MAKO has a small market cap or wait until this trend is 8 or 9 years further down the line, when the stock is much, much higher?
