Sages Conference April 2-5, 2014___ Novadaq A Prime Presenter
Novadaq has booth #633 a 30'X30' prime booth location on the perimeter of the boths, located between Intuitive Surgicals 50'X40' (largest in Sages) and Ethicon's 40'X40' booths. There is no better location or higher foot traffic I can expect at the conference. If Novadaq can roll out its new PINPOINT, with the PILLAR II results commensurate with their seminal technology breakthrough, expect the stock price to scream higher! There is a paper being presented that may give a hint as to the PILLAR II results:
"ETP056 SINGLE-SITE ROBOTIC CHOLECYSTECTOMY
WITH INDOCYANINE GREEN FLUORESCENT
CHOLANGIOGRAPHY: 72 CASES WITH NO
COMPLICATIONS. Despoina Daskalaki, MD, Mario Masrur,
MD, Kristin Patton, MD, Francesco Maria Biano, MD, Pier
Cristoforo Giulianotti, MD, FACS; Department of Surgery, Division
of Minimally Invasive and Robotic Surgery, University of Illinois
Hospital and Health Sciences System"
Pardon me if I'm wrong but I don't believe the paper you mention has much to do with Pillar II. Pillar II concerns cases of laparoscopic colon resection surgery utilizing PINPOINT and not robotic gall bladder surgery. Nonetheless, I'm still looking forward to SAGES!
You are correct. The correlation I was referring to was not the type of surgery but surgery in general. The benefits of this new technology increases the real time efficacy of surgery for just about all theaters of surgery.
