MAKO is a long way from doing total knee, and the total knee is most likely not going to see tremendous benefits from MAKO. Certainly they will exist. But in the end, with such high volume, it will need to cost less, or no more, or do the job substantially better. There is no getting around this. Which is one reason why MAKO went for partial knee, and not total knee I believe, even though total knee is such a larger market. And why MAKO has gone for hips before addressing total knee.

Management is not stupid. They know their technology and their markets.
