MILLBURN, N.J. ( Stockpickr) -- I have spent the better part of the last week sitting in the hospital with my wife, who had surgery, which gave me an opportunity to observe what goes on within a hospital and take notice of the products used by the clinicians and patients.
Heath care is currently estimated to account for about 16% of the U.S. gross domestic product. That amount is only expected to grow once the recently passed health care legislation takes effect and as our nation's population ages.

Based on my recent time at the hospital, I've gathered together a portfolio of medical devices and technology stocks. I am not a big fan of the pharmaceutical industry, but I foresee the medical devices and technology sectors as a source of stable low-risk growth in the future as more money is focused on health care and baby boomers enter their golden years.>>Also: Top-Rated Health Care Technology Stocks
