Neurosurgery is the process of diagnosis & treatment of neurological disorders for instance Alzheimer’s disease, strokes, Parkinson’s disease, degenerative diseases, aneurysms, and trauma to the spinal cord & brain. Neurosurgery surgical robot aids surgeons in performing composite surgeries with more flexibility and precision. These surgical robots are preferred in minimally invasive surgeries or MIS and for the better precision. MI robotic neurosurgery or robotic neurological minimally invasive surgery (RNMIS) adds to an ideal option over the medical centers, patients and surgeons. The surgeon monitors the system by a computer console placed in the operating room. The console has a camera that gives detailed three dimensional or 3D images of the operating site. Some benefits are increased accuracy, better outcomes, lower risk of surgical site infection, sooner recovery and shorter hospital stay etc.
According to study, “Global Neurosurgical Robotics Market 2016-2025: Market Size, Share, Forecast and Strategy” some of the major companies that are currently working in the global neurosurgical robotics market are Brainlab AG, Renishaw plc, DePuy Synthes (Johnson & Johnson), Shenzhen Institutes of Advanced Technology (SIAT), KUKA AG, Mazor Robotics Ltd, Medtronic Inc., SONOWAND AS, Simbionix USA Corp., THINK Surgical Inc., Auris Surgical Robotics, Inc, Zimmer Biomet Holdings, Inc. / Medtech, Smith & Nephew Plc., Stryker Corp. / MAKO. All these vendors are deploying advanced techniques & strategies to increase novel processes for manufacturing of technologically improved neurosurgery surgical robots.
Some current neurosurgical robotics systems are ROSA robot, Renaissance guidance system and Neuromate robot system. ROSA has been used widely for stereo electro encephalography (sEEG) electrode implantation through a high degree of accuracy. Renaissance guidance system uses in spinal surgery, to support with pedicle screw placement. Furthermore, Neuromate robot system consists of a gadolinium-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and may also contain other forms of functional imaging or vascular imaging. Additionally, some other robotic systems include Puma 200, Pathfinder, Neuromate, Neuroarm, Steady hand system, the spine assist, Neurolocate, Expert, iArmS, Da Vinci, Spinal robotics, SOCRATES, Augmented reality systems, Isys1 ROBOT, and Neurosurgical lasers etc.
The market of global neurosurgical robotics is primarily driven by rise in the number of neurosurgery performed, followed by growth in geriatric population, rise in minimally invasive surgeries, rapid increase in the number of robotic surgeries, increase in the purchasing power of hospitals and increase in incidence of neurological disorders. Additionally, some restraint factors are lack of skilled professions and high cost of neurosurgery surgical robots.
In 2017, North America accounted for the foremost share of the global market as a result of rapid progress in the health care industry and high adoption of advanced health care devices in the region. Moreover, Latin America and Asia Pacific are expected to be highly lucrative markets on account of increase in the number of hospitals, large population base, and rise in government investment for the development of health care in the regions. The global neurosurgical robotics market is anticipated to grow at a compound annual growth rate or CAGR of 18.8% through 2025. In upcoming years, it is estimated that the future of this market will be bright due to augment in adoption of technologically advanced health care devices.
