While most thoracolumbar procedures are increasing in number over the forecast period, competitive pricing pressure and capped pricing from hospitals are exerting a strong downward pressure on prices, leading to declining market values. The degenerative and deformity markets will be most significantly affected by cannibalization from the MIS market, and are expected to decline.
Thoracolumbar spinal fusions and their associated fixation implants represent the largest segment of the U.S. spinal implant market. Spinal fusion is a surgical procedure designed to combine two or more vertebrae together, eventually forming a fused bone. Spinal fusion is primarily used for eliminating or significantly reducing the pain caused by abnormal movement of the vertebrae through immobilization.
