Even if the economy sees sales stymied now, that will change over time. I think the biggest predictor of success over the long term is the fact that new doctors are trained on the DaVinci extensively and actually rely on it. In our hospital, the urologists are having a very tough time recruits new partners because the hospital does not have a DaVinci and the doctors fresh out of residency don't want to come work without it. Even though it is expensive, it is the way that trends are going now. Most large hmospitals are going to need one in the next 5 years.
