Patients in today’s healthcare facilities are experiencing the benefits of advanced technology, as evidenced by higher quality-of-life scores after minimally invasive surgery (MIS) compared to traditional open surgery.

Video, high-tech and integrated OR equipment market is rebounding as OR practices undergo an efficiency face-lift following the economic downturn. In 2011, the total market was valued at $1.74 billion. The market is expected to rebound from the 2008 recession, growing to over $2.3 billion in annual sales by 2018, due to increased OR integration, which will further fuel sales of related equipment such as image-capture devices and high-definition surgical cameras. In addition, the increased popularity of minimally invasive surgical procedures (MIS) is fueling sales of booms, displays and PACS monitors.

The video, high-tech and integrated OR equipment market includes:

• integrated ORs,
• surgical camera systems,
• image capture devices,
• surgical displays,
• medical printers,
• light sources,
• surgical headlights,
• surgical lighting,
