Pros

Imaginative products and procedures available to doctors. Far reaching implications for surgical health care.

Cons

Not responsive to physician requests for upgrades, product improvements, special designs or modifications to promote ease of use. Not responsive to recommendations of sales force. Slow to get products to market fully tested and glitch-free. No plans to support Orthopedic Residency programs and recruit younger physicians. No adequate Physician training venues in an easily accessed facility. No Nationally ranked physician champions to recruit other physicians. No long term follow up studies available for highly sold products. No adequate failure hot-line or reporting system. Under-Trained, Non-Responsive and Incompetent customer service reps.

Advice to Management

If failure or design problems are known to management, why not share them with field sales so as to prepare them for the worst. Corporate support needed at the University level for entry Physician/ Surgeons.
