    Sorry, but a machine will always reduce error rates and improve efficiency over human hands. It is simply a matter of the amount of practice the surgeon gets on the machine. Machines are less invasive, less likely to cause infection, and procedures can be done faster as operators become more familiar with the system. Where I work I saw a resident practicing on a DaVinci machine, and the practice RIO was right next to it. I work at a large hospital system that does offer these procedures. They pay off in the long run, and as new surgeons replace oldscool ones, technology will hold prime realty in every O.R. MAKO will do just fine, but is still a ways from profitability.
