WinterGreen 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 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 When a surgeon needs to change an instrument the instrument is withdrawn from the surgical field using the controls at the console and a new instrument is inserted.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.
