DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/5fc74h/u_s_minimally) has announced the addition of the "U.S. Minimally Invasive Spinal Implant Market - 2015" report to their offering.
The U.S. market for minimally invasive surgery (MIS) spinal implants includes spinous process fixation, facet fixation, MIS interbody fusion, MIS pedicle screws and MIS sacroiliac joint fusion.
This U.S. Minimally Invasive Spinal Implant Market report analyzes and evaluates the current state of the market including existing and potential markets, product average selling prices, and unit volumes. The report also highlights the opportunities and potential hazards involved, and presents strategies for successfully navigating the market landscape.
Growth in the minimally invasive spinal implant market is largely driven by the advantages of minimally invasive surgery over open surgery; these include reduced trauma, shorter hospital stays, lower post-operative medication use and earlier return to work. However, growth is expected to slow over the forecast period as a result of the increasing penetration of MIS procedures into the traditional fusion market and increases in the competing motion preservation market.
The vast majority of patients, when given the option, will choose minimally invasive procedures rather than traditional open fusion surgeries. Patients are drawn to the advantages of less invasive techniques. MIS reduces muscle and tissue damage at the surgical site, decreases complications and limits intraoperative time. Clinical outcomes have been largely positive, further favoring the use of MIS techniques over open procedures.
From a practice standpoint, more surgeons are looking into MIS approaches to not only market their practice competitively, but also to increase their potential revenues. MIS procedures often require less intraoperative and hospital time for the patient. As a result, surgeons would theoretically be able to perform more procedures within the same allotted amount of time than if they were to perform the procedures via an open approach.
