Strong start in Q120 was negatively impacted by the double whammy of postponed elective procedures and lag in capital equipment purchases as the result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
While adoption of robotics and other enabling technologies was gaining significant momentum quarter over quarter through year-end 2019, delays in elective spine surgery due to the COVID-19 pandemic resulted in declines in capital equipment sales and fewer computer-assisted spine surgeries in Q120.
