Industry Trends The shift from open cavity procedures to minimally invasive procedures has already occurred within the United States, Australia and Europe. For hospitals to attract top talent, they must be equipped with the latest in high-tech equipment and facilities in order to increase efficiency for the surgeon. Incorporating surgical navigation and robotic systems into
Overall, the U.S. surgical robotics market was valued at $X billion in 2018. This is expected to increase over the forecast period to reach $X billion in 2025. On the other hand, the surgical navigation market was valued at $X million in 2018. This value is projected to increase over the forecast period at a
Neurosurgery navigation, or neuronavigation, requires the use of computer-assisted technologies to guide or navigate neurosurgeons during cranial procedures. This type of surgery evolved from stereotactic surgery, which gained popularity during the 1940s. Stereotaxy was developed to better locate specific small targets within the patient using a three-dimensional coordinate system. The current form of neuronavigation was established in the 1990s but has significantly improved due to the implementation of new neuro-imaging technologies, real-time imaging capabilities, advancements in 3D localization and visualization, intraoperative capabilities, robotics and dramatic improvements in software. Neuronavigation has been at the forefront of image guided surgery (IGS) and computer assisted surgery (CAS) due to the level of sophistication associated with the procedures. It is continually evolving with the introduction of new technologies as well as the increased number of procedures for which it can be used. An example of a new technology emerging in this field is surgical virtualization. Neurosurgeons can essentially perform a trial virtual surgery using software which creates a 3D model of the surgical area, allowing them to assess the possible complications that may arise during the surgery and try alternative approaches to determine which will result in the most accurate results.
