Demand for Spine Surgery Robots to garner Huge Gains from Vast Promises of Robotics to up Surgical Outcomes

Published On : Jan 11, 2019 | Category : Pharmaceutical

Over the past several years, operating room procedures have witnessed unprecedented technology advancements, harbored increasingly by the use of robotics in the medical device systems. Spine surgeries are no different, and robots have been witnessing rising utilization by surgeons. Perhaps, the most compelling proposition for the use of robots comes from their effectiveness in robotic-assisted screw trajectory. There is a rising demand for spine surgery robots in medical centers typically in spine fusion, scoliosis correction surgery, vertebroplasty, and spinal biopsies. Some other compelling propositions promoting the use of spine surgery robots in the healthcare sector are better performance mapping and increased therapy customization.

The drive stems from the adoption of robotics to bring down the hospitalization period, reduce complications, and enhance convenience of the patient population. Furthermore, spine surgery robots hold great promise in complementing the expertise of surgeons on complex surgeries, where they can be considerably useful proponent in surgical outcomes. 

Powered by the vast strides in robotics technology, the global spine surgery robots market will see an exciting growth trajectories in the next few years. To put things in perspective, the global market is projected to reach a worth of US$320 million by the end of 2026.

Rising Demand for Minimally Invasive Surgeries sets Pace for Adoption of Robotics in Spine Surgeries

Minimally invasive surgeries are more convenient and also favor surgical outcomes. Minimally invasive surgeries have gained traction among surgeons and patients alike. The rising demand for these surgeries has been propelling the use of robotics in spine surgeries, where robots are increasingly capable of helping positioning tools. These tools need to fulfil the needs of complex manipulations of tissues and robots have emerged out as potentially powerful assistive devices for surgeons.

The spine surgery market stems is expected to make lucrative gains from the rising communization of spine surgeries in various parts of the globe. The demand will also witnessed a big push from constant advancements in tissue recognition imaging modalities. Despite the vast promises the use of robotics bear in spine surgeries, robots have still not seen widespread commercialization in routine operating room procedures.

Substantial Early Adopters of Robotics in Spine Surgeries make Developed Nations Potentially Lucrative

Of the various regions where the spine surgery robots market is witnessing potential, North America has emerged as prominent. Sizeable shares of revenue will come from the rising applications of robots in spine surgeries in medical centers in the U.S. The demand will gain the most from favorable reimbursement policies and substantial numbers of early takers. Relentless research and development in the surgical devices used in spine surgeries, coupled with growing number of clinical studies to assess their role, is expected to create new avenues in the regional market. Several small hospitals in the U.S. seeking advanced operating room technologies for spinal treatments are leveraging the potential of robotics, thereby generating lucrative prospects.

Meanwhile, developing regions are expected to be no less promising in the coming years. A great deal of progress toward this is pinned by the rising use of automation or robotics in healthcare infrastructures and advancement in operating rooms modalities, respectively. Regions at the forefront of this trend are member states of the Gulf Cooperation Council, and numerous economies of Asia Pacific, notably India and China.
