    That hip procedures would have lower margins than knees is not news. That was clear when they discussed the hip implants well over a year ago, While the Restoris knee implants are in-house products, the hip implants are made by a third party. I wrote September 6, 2011:

    "Also, they have spent a lot of money gearing up for hip which should see triple the volume of knee (with a lower gross margin for the implants). Hip should boost the utilization rate from the current 6.4 per month. 2012 or 13 could see an important inflection point. They plan on launching hip towards the end of this year."
