DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "US Market Overview for Minimally Invasive Spinal Implants 2017 - MedView" report to their offering.
The spinal implant market is considered by many to be the most exciting and controversial segment of the orthopedics industry. This market has traditionally been a segment of the orthopedics market, but due to rapid growth and a large market size, many manufacturers view the spine as a key business division separate from traditional orthopedics.
Historically, the majority of spinal implants were implanted in open surgical procedures through large incisions. However, open surgery can cause considerable tissue damage and lead to a large number of complications. Minimally invasive techniques, which require only small puncture wounds, have been developed for the implantation of a number of spinal implant types. Minimally invasive surgery (MIS) methods are frequently used for implanting traditional spinal implant devices, such as interbody devices and pedicle screws. However, new technologies such as facet fixation and spinous process fixation have also been developed using MIS techniques.
Rapid growth is expected in all segments of the U.S. minimally invasive spinal implant market as a result of the physiological and surgical advantages of MIS procedures over open procedures.
One of the key drivers for the MIS spinal device market is the increase in the target population, which is composed of aging baby boomers. The majority of procedures are performed on those individuals in the final third and quarter of their lifespan, usually over the age of 60. This age group is the fastest growing demographic cohort in the United States. The biggest limiting factor for the MIS spinal device market is the complexity of the procedures and the skill required to master them.
