I don't think there's a huge difference between the way we approach surgery or treat patients in Canada or the United States. Certainly in Canada I think we're a little bit more conservative, and I think we do things that are a little bit more tried and trusted. So it may not be kind of the "latest and greatest" of today. It may be something that's a little bit more proven. I think another slight difference between the United States and Canada is that we have a little bit more of a connection or a heritage with Europe.

So we kind of get the best of both worlds where we get a lot of feedback because things are done differently all over the world. But the reality is in today's world we're all very interconnected. And what people are doing well in whatever part of the world we're sharing those kind of things with each other, and a meeting like this really gives us that opportunity to share those ideas of what someone might be doing in Brazil or what someone might be doing in France and put them all together.
