Knowing that the number of open and invasive procedures shrunk as da Vinci operations rose can be a huge factor when one is determining what route to take when having surgery.

This report is but one piece in the puzzle for investors looking to own a part of a company that is changing the way some soft-tissue procedures are carried out, both in the U.S. and abroad.
