An Outlook on Minimally Invasive Surgical Instruments Market

Minimally Invasive Surgery – Introductory Summary

Minimally invasive surgery can be defined as a technique in surgery that allows the examination of internal organs without large incisions thereby reducing the damage to human tissues when performing the surgery. For instance, in this type of surgery – a surgeon makes several small ¾-inch incisions and inserts thin tubes called trocars. Carbon dioxide gas may be used to inflate the area thereby creating a space between the internal organs and the skin. The minimally invasive surgical instruments are placed through the other trocars to perform and complete the surgical procedure.

The minimally invasive surgery is also known as “Laparoscopic Surgery” got a major boost when in 1981 – Kurt Semm performed the first laparoscopic appendectomy and from then on all standard surgical procedures began to be performed laparoscopically especially in developed countries of Europe and North America. The potential benefits of minimally invasive surgery led to the demand for minimally invasive surgical instruments leading to an enormous growth of the market for minimally invasive medical devices.

The potential benefits of minimally invasive surgery procedures as compared with traditional open surgery have resulted in hospitals and healthcare centers opting for minimally invasive surgery procedure. Some of the benefits of minimally invasive surgery procedure include:

  • Less major bleeding when performing surgery
  • Fewer post operation infections
  • Fewer complications
  • Short length of stay
  • Less scarring
  • Quicker recovery time
  • Lower cost for patients undergoing minimally invasive surgery
