if i was to buy them, but i dont, i pay 650...
i do them in the hospital.

parallax are ok, those stupid trocars are cumbersome,

Smith and Nephew is just like everything Smith and Nephew makes, junk.

I use Stryker. Price is negotiable and depends who is your rep and how much work you do with them. My understanding is also that you can buy cement separately and that Stryker is buying now cement from Kyphon
