Intuitive Surgical (ISRG -3.2%) slips after a cautious mention on Twitter by Citron Research, saying hospitals are beginning to question the value of robotic surgery. The tweet links to an article in the Monterey Herald that infers ISRG's da Vinci system is nothing more than "razzle-dazzle marketing," and questions whether the $2m price tag is justified.

    AS WITH MOST SURGERIES, THE FINAL COST IS CALCULATED BY MANY FACTORS BEYOND THE SURGICAL COST. VERY CLEARLY, THESE AFTER SURGERY COSTS ARE MUCH LOWER WHEN THE DA VINCI ROBOTIC OPERATING MACHINE IS USED BECAUSE HEALING IS MUCH FASTER. THIS ROBOTIC METHOD PORVIDED BY INTUITIVE SURGERICAL'S ROBOTIC DA VINCI MACHINE IS CLEARLY SUPERIOR THAN ALL ALTERNATIVES. ALL THIS IS FULLY SUPPORTED BY ALL AVAILABLE DATA. CWS.
