Dr. James Chen: In 2024 and beyond, we are going to continue to see the integration of enabling technologies in healthcare to improve efficiencies. For my subspecialty in total joint replacement surgery, robotic-assisted surgery will continue to grow, and we will continue to refine the use of these enabling technologies to further personalize the procedure and entire episode of care.
