The benefits robotic surgery provides the patients as well as the surgeons with have been extensively analyzed and the increasing need for automation in the healthcare sector has been real behind the cause why this advanced surgical technique has started ruling the industry.
Robotic surgery is a type of surgery that takes recourse to minimal invasive technique of utilizing miniaturized surgical instruments mounted on a robot’s arms. A magnified HD 3-D camera is placed on its arms and this is how it gets guided through the surgical procedure. In the past few years, robotic surgery has actually transformed the way surgeons used to operate.
Following are the three good reasons why the market of robot-assisted surgery is expected to go a long way-
Less invasive– The fact that the surgeons don’t need to utilize their hands to get an access to the affected part of the body makes way for smaller incisions than the ones made in conventional surgery. The minimally invasive surgery, as it is, allows the surgeons use a robot to aid them in the surgical procedure. The taut spaces in the body that would otherwise only be reachable through long incisions can now be accessible by the robot’s hands, and that too, with a high level of deftness. Also, the robotic arms happen to be absolutely perfect in the job and thus, diminishing the chance of accidental cuts that could cause infections. As the hard-to-reach areas in the body are surrounded with major blood vessels, it becomes very risky for the patient to go for conventional surgeries. In order to get a closer view of such areas and to have more room for the surgery, the surgeons need to opt for larger incisions that might be quite agonizing for the patient. This is exactly where robotic surgery peeps in and proves its flair by being minimally invasive.
Less prone to infections– As it’s not highly invasive, robotic surgery, quite naturally, takes less time to recover. There is always a chance for contamination in conventional surgeries that may delay recovery. Though the healing properties in body tend to vary individually, most of the patients become able to get back to their normal lives within few weeks. So, with this shorter recovery time, one can not only save the typically sky-high costs charged at nursing homes, but can also resume their daily activities within a short notice. On top of that, there will be no scar in your body- something almost all the patients tend to worry about.
Less blood loss– Blood loss can cause severe complications at times. Robotic surgery makes sure there is minimal loss of blood in the process, thereby avoiding the need for blood transfusions as well. So, the potential infections that come with open surgeries will actually be less.
The surgical robotics market is expanding at a rapid pace and is expected to mount up yet more in the years to come. According to Allied Market Research, the global surgical robotics market that was estimated at $56,294.9 million in the year 2017 is anticipated to hit $98,737.0 million by 2024. And, the CAGR of 8.5% during the forecast points out to its inevitable market growth indeed. The high cost associated with the market might work as an obstacle initially, but the promising potential of the technique is definitely going to propel its growth to a significant extent.
