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
Image guided surgery (IGS) assists ENT (ear, nose and throat) specialists in performing interventions where the shape of the sinus and airways can cause potential complications. The majority of ENT IGS systems are designed for ENT procedures only. However, some companies who do not manufacture a standalone ENT IGS system will bundle their ENT software with cranial software. Lacking some of the specialized features designed for neurosurgery procedures, ENT systems are relatively simple and less expensive. However, ENT procedures are more difficult to visualize than other IGS procedure types as they involve much smaller and hard-to-reach areas of the human body.
IGS was initially developed in the neurosurgical field to assist in accurately navigating the path to tumors in sensitive cranial areas. Many neurosurgical procedures could not be performed without the aid of some kind of a navigation system. As a standard of care procedure, IGS systems have a high penetration rate in the neurosurgical market, with most facilities that perform neurosurgery already having a system. As a result, neurosurgical IGS products have the highest proportion of expert surgeons using these devices.
The orthopedic segment of the IGS market has the greatest overall potential because of the sheer number of procedures performed due to the population growth, a growing elderly population, and increasing obesity rates in India. Over the forecast period, the use of orthopedic IGS systems is set to make inroads into sport orthopedics, expanding to include more shoulder and knee procedures.
The use of IGS has not become standard of care in spinal surgeries. Navigation systems require a reference point and due to excessive movement of skin surrounding the spinal column, the rigid spinal anatomy itself is usually used as the frame of reference. One of the main limiters to IGS is the preparation time necessary prior to the surgery.
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. Most new surgical robotic systems are designed for highly specialized medical applications, which is a major draw-back for most facilities. The types of surgical robotic assisted systems covered in this section are: minimally invasive surgery robotic systems, orthopedic robotic systems, neurosurgery robotic systems, spinal robotic systems, and radiosurgery robotic systems.
The full report suite on the India market for surgical robotics and navigation includes four segments in surgical navigation and three segments in robotics which includes an appendix. The segmentation for surgical navigation systems 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) and orthopedic robotically assisted systems. The robotics appendix contains qualitative information on the neurosurgery, spinal, and radiosurgery robotics markets.
