Industry Trends The global minimally invasive spine surgery market (MIS) is considered by many to be the most exciting and controversial segment of the orthopedics industry. This market has traditionally been a segment of the orthopedics market but, due to rapid growth and a large market size, many manufacturers view spine as a key business
Industry Trends Despite many challenges, growth is expected in many market segments, as the patient demographics in the U.S. maintain a steady demand for such procedures. Growth has slowed in the last few years as newer, minimally invasive innovations gradually cannibalized the traditional spine market. The VCF segment will be the fastest growing in the
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
The full report suite on the Chinese market for spinal implants and VCF includes traditional cervical and thoracolumbar fixation devices, interbody devices, motion preservation devices, vertebral compression fracture (VCF) treatment and spinal surgery instrumentation.
The market for spine navigation systems, or spinal image guided surgery (IGS) systems, is closely linked to that of neurosurgical IGS systems. There are relatively few dedicated IGS systems for spinal procedures. Most spinal IGS procedures are performed using neurosurgical IGS systems with spinal software applications. Because spinal and neurosurgical operations are often performed by the same surgeons, this arrangement has worked well so far. Certain spinal procedures may require specialized instruments; however, these disposable instruments can be used with non-specialized systems that have the appropriate software. Many spinal IGS systems can be used to assist in trauma procedures once equipped with the right software and accessories. Spinal conditions treated with IGS include fractures, metastasis, spinal slip disc and spinal curvature. Spinal imaging software allows surgeons to perform on the thoracic and lumbar regions of the spine, while many have pelvic trauma applications. Recently, there has been a push to develop more dedicated spinal IGS and robotic systems that would be better suited to strictly spinal or trauma surgeries.
Surgical robotics has tremendous potential to increase the effectiveness of existing procedures and to facilitate novel procedure types. The surgical robotics industry is, in many ways, still in its infancy, with more products in development than currently commercially available on the market. Early surgical robotics systems were based on industrial robots; however, most new surgical robotic systems are designed for highly specialized medical applications, which is a major drawback for most facilities. The types of surgical robotic assisted systems covered in this section are minimally invasive surgery robotic systems, orthopedic robotic systems, spinal robotic systems, neurosurgery robotic systems, robotic catheters and radiosurgery robotic systems.
The full report suite on the China market for robotics and surgical navigation includes four segments in surgical navigation and four segments in robotics. The segmentation for surgical navigation includes systems with neurosurgery applications, spinal surgery applications, ear, nose and throat (ENT) applications, and orthopedic hip and knee applications. The segmentation for surgical robotics systems includes minimally invasive surgery (MIS), robotically assisted neurosurgery systems, robotically assisted radiosurgery systems, and robotically assisted spinal surgery systems.
