ResearchMoz.us: Surgical Robots Industry Will Reach $8.5 Billion by 2018 – Market Research Report
ALBANY, New York, August 1, 2012 /PRNewswire/ –
New Report Added in ResearchMoz Reports Database “Surgical Robots Market Shares,
Strategies, and Forecasts, Worldwide, 2012 to 2018″
New study Surgical Robots Market
Shares, Strategy, and Forecasts, Worldwide: 2012 to 2018. The
2012 study has 263 pages, 75 tables and figures. Worldwide surgical robot markets are
poised to achieve significant growth as the next generation systems provide a way to
improve traditional open surgery.
The automated process revolution in surgery and communications is being implemented
via robots. Robots are automating systems, providing significant improvement in the
accuracy of surgery.

According to Susan Eustis, lead author of the study, “Existing open surgery can be
replaced in large part by robotic and minimally invasive surgery
(MIS). Minimally invasive surgery MIS, drug
therapies, radiation treatment, and emerging interventional surgical approaches complement
robotic surgery techniques as a replacement for or complement to open surgery.”
During a robot assisted surgical procedure, the patient-side cart is positioned next
to the operating table with the electromechanical arms arranged to provide access to the
initial ports selected by the surgeon. Metal tubes attached to the arms are inserted
through the ports, and the cutting and visualization instruments are introduced through
the tubes into the patient’s body.
The surgeon performs the procedure while sitting at a console, manipulating the
instrument controls and viewing the operation through a vision system. When a surgeon
needs to change an instrument the instrument is withdrawn from the surgical field using
the controls at the console and a new instrument is inserted. This is done many times
during an operation.
The companies that get an early foothold in the market have significant strategic
advantage. The robotic surgical technique benefits hospitals by reducing the length of
patient stays, thereby enabling better cost management. This factor is driving demand for
surgery robot systems. Since robotics provides surgeons with a precise, repeatable and
controlled ability to perform procedures in tight spaces, they are increasingly in demand.
The aging US population has supported demand, since the occurrence of health issues
that require medical devices is higher in the elderly population. Buoyed by strong demand
and sales, industry profit margins have increased considerably during the past five years.
Compared with other minimally invasive surgery approaches, robot-assisted surgery
gives the surgeon better control over the surgical instruments and a better view of the
surgical site. Surgeons no longer have to stand throughout the surgery and do not tire as
quickly. Hand tremors are filtered out by the robot’s computer software. The surgical
robot can continuously be used by rotating surgery teams.
Surgical robot device markets
at $2.4 billion in 2011 are anticipated to reach $8.5 billion
by 2018 as next generation devices, systems, and instruments are introduced to manage
surgery through small ports in the body instead of large open wounds.
