From the smallest biotech to the biggest pharmaceutical stock, The Motley Fool's Market Check-Up covers the health-care sector's biggest headlines, hottest market movers, and Obamacare's ongoing rollout.

In this segment from Monday's episode, health-care analyst David Williamson discusses a recent article in The Wall Street Journal that reported an increase in injuries and deaths this year linked to Intuitive Surgical's (NASDAQ:ISRG) da Vinci surgical system. The company, however, argues that there is no statistically significant link between the system and increased adverse incidents. David looks at both sides of the case, the company's potential growth avenues going forward, and the headwinds it faces.
