You do not seem to understand that ISRG has grown by numerous TALC's......prostate, then GYN, then whatever is next. MAKO has gotten stuck at the chasm with its unicompartment strategy. Duma, I think that's a mistaken view of "TALC." The "T" in TALC stand for technology not for specific applications of the technology. You would not talk about the "TALC" of "narrow city trenches for last mile optic fiber to the home." That might be a bowling pin in the hydraulic excavator's TALC. Also TALC is not company specific but technology wide.Of course, in real life things are much more messy than in text books. Are we talking about the "robotic surgery" TALC or is there separate ones for soft tissue and bone surgery. If so, the CyberKnife Robotic Radiosurgery System which is aimed at soft tissue is not doing so well while da Vinci is. What might be holding back CyberKnife? Complexity? Is CyberKnife just a bowling pin that has not yet fallen or is it a different technology altogether?Denny Schlesinger
