Surgical robots market shares, strategies, and forecasts, worldwide, 2012 to 2018

  1. 1. Surgical Robots Market Shares, Strategies, and Forecasts, Worldwide,2012 to 2018Surgical Robots Work Sometimes From a Single Surgical Port, Providing less Cost, Providing aFlexible Operating SystemWinterGreen Research announces that it has published a 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 systemsprovide 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 partby robotic and minimally invasive surgery (MIS). Minimally invasive surgery MIS, drug therapies, radiationtreatment, and emerging interventional surgical approaches complement robotic surgery techniques as areplacement for or complement to open surgery."During a robot assisted surgical procedure, the patient-side cart is positioned next to the operating tablewith 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 visualizationinstruments are introduced through the tubes into the patients body.Get your copy of this report @ Details:Published: July 2012No. of Pages: 452Price: US$6300The surgeon performs the procedure while sitting at a console, manipulating the instrument controls andviewing the operation through a vision system. When a surgeon needs to change an instrument theinstrument is withdrawn from the surgical field using the controls at the console and a new instrument isinserted. This is done many times during an operation.The companies that get an early foothold in the market have significant strategic advantage. The roboticsurgical technique benefits hospitals by reducing the length of patient stays, thereby enabling better cost
  2. 2. management. This factor is driving demand for surgery robot systems. Since robotics provides surgeonswith a precise, repeatable and controlled ability to perform procedures in tight spaces, they areincreasingly in demand.The aging US population has supported demand, since the occurrence of health issues that requiremedical devices is higher in the elderly population. Buoyed by strong demand and sales, industry profitmargins have increased considerably during the past five years.Compared with other minimally invasive surgery approaches, robot-assisted surgery gives the surgeonbetter control over the surgical instruments and a better view of the surgical site. Surgeons no longerhave to stand throughout the surgery and do not tire as quickly. Hand tremors are filtered out by therobots 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 nextgeneration devices, systems, and instruments are introduced to manage surgery through small ports inthe body instead of large open wounds.Companies ProfiledMarket Leaders  Accuray  Intuitive Surgical  Medrobotics  Freehand 2010Market Participants  Curexc Technology Corporation  Freehand 2010 / Prosurgics  Hansen Medical  HealthCare Robotics Lab  iRobot  MAKO Surgical  Otto Bock HealthCare  Restoration Robotics  Titan Medical  UC Berkeley  Vecna RoboticsKey Topics Covered:  Surgical Robotics  Medical Devices  Healthcare Robotics
