Robotic surgery is known as a type of minimally invasive surgery that utilizes robotics to perform surgical procedures. These robotic surgery systems are operated by surgeons and consist of miniaturized surgical instruments that are mounted on robotic arms, thereby allowing surgeons to perform the surgeries precisely. The surgery field is witnessing a period of great change because of phenomenal recent advances in surgical and computer technology. Robotic surgery could revolutionize treatment by providing precise, stable, and dexterous assistance to human surgeons. Robotic systems enable the specialists to robotize the surgical strategy, along these lines enhancing efficiency and precision during the action, and limiting post-surgical complexity.
The Global Robotic Surgery Devices Market is expected to reach USD x billion by 2026 from USD x billion in 2018, at a CAGR of xx%. The main factors driving the growth of the robotic surgery market include an increase in adopting surgical robots by healthcare facilities, technological advancements being made in these robotic systems, which can be utilized for varied surgical procedures. Robotics based surgery is now at the cutting edge of precision in the surgery realm. This is due to the phenomenal advancement in the medical devices made since a few decades.
Integrated Surgical Supplies Ltd., ROBODOC was the first surgical robot that was FDA approved in August 2008. It was primarily used to place the femur, with better precision, in hip replacement surgeries, now it has been used in more than 28000 joint replacement procedures. Similarly, several other robotic systems such as the AESOP system (a voice-controlled robotic endoscope), Da Vinci, and Zeus have been approved by the FDA. Stryker by acquiring MAKO Surgical Corp. had made a major strategic move, which was a pioneer in the advancing robotic arm assisted surgery in orthopedics. This has led to a more predictable surgical experience in performing joint replacement surgery and making Stryker as a key innovator in Robotics surgery Market. In 2017, Stryker received US FDA approval for its cementless Mako Total Knee with Triathlon Tritanium. Nevertheless, Intuitive Surgical, Inc., is a world-class manufacturer of robotic surgical systems. Globally, the da Vinci Surgical System offered by the company is the most preferred system. Newly in 2017, the company has got approval for novel da Vinci X Surgical System that provides a lower-cost, robotic-assisted surgical option for hospitals, surgeons, sustaining its dominance in the market. In 2018, Intuitive Surgical announced the launch of Single Port Platform. This system is indicated for urologic surgical procedures that are appropriate for a single port approach. In Jan 2019, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has issued a warning against the usage of surgical robots in mastectomies and other surgeries for the treatment or prevention of cancer.
However, the high cost associated with robotic surgeries & robotic systems is hampering the robotic surgery market. In addition, the rise in death toll and injuries due to robotic surgeries will also impede the growth of the robotic surgery market. Further, untapped economies such as Brazil, India, China, and other developing economies will create lucrative opportunities in the surgical robotics market. There found a lot of negative publicity regarding the usage of robotic systems in surgeries. Efficacy and patient safety that is associated with robotic surgeries have been questioned many times in statements by public officials and their concerns, which may hinder the global acceptance of robotic surgical systems. This may, in effect result in decreased product demand and a decline in sales revenue. In addition, it could also lead to an increase in the number of product liability claims, irrespective of whether they are relevant.
