|By:, SA News Editor

Also getting a boost Wednesday from the Stryker-Mako (SYK, MAKO) deal was Hansen Medical (HNSN) which posted double-digit gains (+14%) for the session.

Intuitive Surgical (ISRG) and Accuray (ARAY) finished the day higher by 1% and 1.9% respectively.

Meanwhile, commentary continues to come in regarding the seemingly high price SYK paid in the deal. BMO's Joanne Wuensch says that despite the lofty premium, "it makes a lot of sense [as] SYK takes a step forward into robotic surgery and consolidates its orthopedic silo."
