Surgery includes treatment of diseases or disorders through incision to the body with the help of various medical instruments. With increasing geriatric population and escalating lifestyle disorders, surgeries have become critical for healthcare improvement. Surgeries are generally performed on the basis of purpose/need like exploratory surgery is performed to confirm or aid diagnosis, whereas therapeutic surgery is performed for treatment of previously diagnosed condition and cosmetic surgery for appearance enhancement.
Global surgery market can be classified by procedures into amputation, replantation and reconstructive surgery and by degree of invasiveness into open and minimally-invasive surgery (MIS). Open surgery like laparotomy involves larger incisions to reach area of interest. On contrary, MIS like angioplasty or laparoscopy is performed with smaller incisions to insert miniature instruments into body cavity. Of both, MIS captures majority of the market. MIS is gaining popularity due to benefit of fast treatment and reduced recovery time. Currently, industry is witnessing developments of highly advanced technological products under MIS like stereoscopic 3D endoscopy, narrowband imaging and confocal micro endoscopes.
On basis of equipment, global surgery market is segmented into micro, laser and robotic surgery. Laser surgery employs laser for incision; microsurgery uses operating microscope for surgery; and robotic surgery implements surgical robots like Da Vinci & Zeus systems. Robotic surgery is expected to witness fastest growth attributing to its ability to implement MIS to perform complex surgeries. However, stringent regulatory process for approval and high associated risk of robot-assisted surgeries are posing limitation to the market.
With advanced developments in neuromodulation and neurosimulation techniques, neurosurgery is expected to witness promising growth in near future. Additionally, industry is currently witnessing increase in adoption of biosurgery due to its ability to minimize post and intra-operative complications. Biosurgery generally involves use of biologic and synthetic products to support the surgery related complexities.
