Healthcare Robots Market Segment Analysis Drivers

Growing Demand For Minimally Invasive Surgeries:

Minimally invasive procedures (MIS) are becoming more popular around the world as a result of the advantages they provide, such as smaller incisions, fewer cuts, less scarring, less discomfort, increased safety, faster recovery times, and significant cost savings. Robotic minimally invasive surgery amplifies these advantages by ensuring greater accuracy, reproducibility, control, and efficiency. The straight-stick laparoscopy to open surgery conversion rate was 26%, according to a 2020 publication on a gynecological investigation of laparoscopy hysterectomy. The conversion rate for procedures performed on a robotic platform, on the other hand, was less than 5%, resulting in less morbidity and blood loss. Robotic surgery also has improved visualization capabilities, allowing surgeons to see up to small structures using high-definition cameras and have a better perspective of the operating area. These technologies have better dexterity than the human hand; their capacity to spin 360 degrees and superior mobility allow surgeons to reach even the most difficult-to-reach locations.

Preference Of Non-Invasive Procedure

Medical robotic system uses non-invasive surgeries in the field of gynecology, cosmetology, open surgery, laparoscopic procedures, and others.
