    My surgeons just swapped all of their Thunderturd disposables back to my Ligasure Maryland. Those generators will be collecting dust in the supply closet. Nice try guys.

    Based on what hospitals in my territory are paying for thunderbeat disposables (under $400) and generators (free) I bet the margins on this business are a lot lower than what was forecasted when it launched. Given the fact that EVERYONE makes a vessel sealer now, not to mention reprocessing, the days of selling on "technology" are a thing of the past. I'd be surprised to see Olympus throw much more weight behind this product.

    No doubt. Too late to the game. Now what to do with all this inventory we can barely give away?

    I agree and wanna quit but I make 200K a yr. Where the hell else can I go and make that much with the same work/life balance? I'm stuck. Oh well could be worse I guess.

    This is total BS. What a troll you are. I have not had a single surgeon revert back to ligasure or harmonic after switching to Thunderbeat. Not one. Go troll somewhere else.

    Maybe you're the troll? You guys have to give this stuff away for people to use it.

    Next thing you'll tell me is that you've converted people to Sonicbeat too?

    Enjoy your spot as a distant #3. You'll probably drop to #4 once Applied comes out with their device.

    You probably thought you won the lotto once you got hired on at Ethicon or Covidien as an "Energy Expert" making 125K. Leader of the energy market. Way to shoot for the top. :)

    I know of two for certain. Thermal injuries to the bowel. Thunderbeat gets a little hot.

    Listen to all of you...bragging about a commodity product that a monkey could use. "Hey doc, clamp down, activate, and let the tissue fall away. Aren't you glad that I'm in the room to help you? I'm important!" Shut it.

    I've been selling energy for 10 years and it has pretty much sucked. The stress level is so low that I don't feel very important. Also, being involved in my kids' lives and playing golf three days a week really sucks too. The worst part is the money. We can barely survive on $175 a year and don't get me started on the free car my company gives me. Shitty deal. Man, I feel like a loser.

    I've been a case where a surgeon burned bowel with the monopolar tip of the Ligasure Advance - does that mean the Advance is unsafe? Any energy device can cause damage if not used properly.

    Funny thing is you should feel like a loser. While trying to be sarcastic you instead described being complacent in a job for 10 yrs because it pays decent and offers a free car. Kudos to you bud. You made it. Too bad no one ever told you to aim higher. Being average for 175K and a "free car"? You sound like a pharma rep. I'll pass.

    Funny thing is I'm good with where I'm at. Don't really need the bigger, better thing to be happy. If you gotta be the boss, with the latest car and biggest house, that's all right with me. I'll never understand why people like you gotta hate if someone else is happy with their situation.

    Hey sensitive guy, no one is "hating" on you. YOU were the one bragging about your 175K job, being able to golf 3X a week, and having a free car. I simply stated there are better opportunities out there is all. Sorry that ruffled your feathers. Hey...if you're happy selling energy your entire life, that's fine. Don't "hate" on me if I aspire more.
