And now, robotic hernia surgery
First it was prostate removals, then it was hysterectomies, then it was gall bladder removals, and now (tah dah!), Intutive Surgical offers robotic hernia surgery. Again, another procedure that is already offered at low cost and with excellent results.
Please watch over the coming days as people start to correlate the names of surgeons who have endorsed these "advances" with payments from this company.
