Computer-assisted navigation systems or orthopedic navigation systems incorporate intra-operative execution and pre-operative planning information by demonstrating three-dimensional computer images in relative patient anatomy that is image-guided surgery systems. These image-guided surgery systems consist of a computer workstation with surgical planning and image-processing software, a display monitor, and a digitization system. Computer software allows the surgeon to measure angles, volumes, and distances and to zoom and rotate. This helps in determining the cutting planes and implant positioning. Orthopedic navigation systems are used in surgeries for knee, hip, spine, joint, and shoulder replacement. Total knee arthroplasty, revision of total knee arthroplasty, kinematic evaluation, and uni-compartmental arthroplasty are the applications wherein these navigation systems can be used. In case of hip surgeries, these systems can be used in total hip arthroplasty. In spine surgeries, orthopedic navigation systems can be used to treat defects caused by degenerative disc diseases, spinal stenosis, fractures, and spondylolisthesis.
Orthopedic Navigation Systems Market: Dynamics
In recent years, the popularity of orthopedic navigation systems has been rising among surgeons in developed countries. Increasing usage of navigation software by physicians and surgeons due to availability of cost-effective solutions and higher awareness are factors projected to boost the orthopedic navigation systems market in the near future. In addition, the rising adoption of minimally invasive surgeries is likely to promote growth of the market during the forecast period. Technological developments in surgical navigation systems, rise in the funding for R&D activities, and increasing incidence of osteoarthritis are other factors expected to augment the orthopedic navigation systems market in the next few years. Associated advantages of navigation systems such as shorter hospital stay, easier rehabilitation, and low blood loss are a few more factors expected to propel the market during the forecast period. Computer-assisted surgeries offer improved functionality, accurate implant alignment, and fewer complications. They cause less pain and less tissue damage, which improves the quality-adjusted life year (QALY).
