Where will Intuitive find future growth? Abbott’s Moat on how population boom will boost demand

In this episode of the DeviceTalks Weekly Podcast, we’ll talk with Intuitive Surgical’s Julian Nikolchev, senior vice president, corporate development and strategy and Oliver Keown, MD, director of Intuitive Ventures, about the new $100 million venture fund. How will the capital be invested? Where does Intuitive see the opportunity, and how does the program fit into the robotic surgical company’s broader mandate to expand the profile of its product offerings? In our opening keynote, Neal Moat, MD, chief medical officer of Abbott’s structural heart business, talks about the success of the MitraClip and the impact COVID-19 is having on patients and Abbott personnel.

Chris Newmarker, executive editor of MassDevice, will roll out his Newmarker’s Newsmakers including news about Abbott, Masimo and Stryker. Sean Whooley, assistant editor, will also give an earning wrap on the show highlighting interesting reports from Inspire Medical, Hologic, Stryker and Coloplast.

DeviceTalks listeners are also invited to nominate their own Newmarker’s Newsmakers of 2020. Use this online ballot to make your suggestions. We’ll send out a ballot of the finalists later this month.
