skepticism on the practicality of the daVinci robot in ENT head and neck surgeries.
However, that does not mean that I do not doubt its effectiveness in certain unique situations... as well as market forces that use such high (and expensive) technology to market a given hospital's services.

There are... and here are two that I am aware of.
