  • Intuitive Surgical: The Perfect Time To Buy - A Doctor's Perspective [View article]
    TrufflePig- I wouldn't say that doctor want to be better than robots...I think at this stage it's like NASCAR drivers getting worried that the google car will take over their job.

    Goalkick9- I work in the operating room as an anesthesiologist and have seen robotics being used in a vast array of cases from OB/GYN to general surgery and orthopedics. I have a background in surgery as well. I have consulted with all of these specialties in writing this article and have cited a few references to prestigious journals.

    Thank you all for the comments. Please let me know if you have any others

    yamalori-that is true that it is "inherently longer" to perform with robots. At the same time, medicine in general in a balance between risks and benefits, just like medications. There have been many studies (a few are cited) that show the obvious benefit of using robotic surgery. It is clear in most cases that robotic surgery has more benefit than risk. Also, it does not take "double" the time to do surgeries robotically. Please cite a study which shows this.
    Additionally, many surgeons do "suck" at doing procedures laparoscopically, however they are still surgeons and are operating. Most residency programs do not test dexterity while interviewing patients for residency. I am happy the member of your family is proficient in it.
    Also, often times both the resident "youngster" and his/her attending will alternate on the robot so both become experienced. This is similar to the way all surgeons become surgeons, they work alongside someone more experienced.

    If I'd like to get in NVDA before earnings, would you recommend waiting for another pullback to $12 or do you think people are realizing that it's already incredibly low priced?
