Neurosurgery is most challenging surgical specialties due to the limited maneuverability imposed by the small surgical fields of modern minimally invasive techniques. Additionally, high-precision standards are required to achieve maximum therapeutic effect without compromising the function of noble anatomical structures of central & peripheral nervous system. There are many benefits to using robots in neurosurgery including decreased operative times, increased accuracy during intervention, smaller incisions and lower overall associated procedural costs. Furthermore, robotic systems help the surgeons in preoperative planning and executing all tasks during surgery with high degree of dexterity. Thus, robotic systems can play an important role in performing a wide range of neurosurgical procedures such as Stereoelectroencephalography (sEEG), stereotactic biopsies, spinal instrumentation, and neuroendovascular interventions.
As per analysis, “North America Neurosurgical Robotics Market 2020-2027 by Product, Equipment Type, End User and Country: Market Size, Share, Forecast and Strategy” the key companies operating in the North-America neurosurgical robotics market include SONOWAND AS, Renishaw plc, Simbionix USA Corp., DePuy Synthes (Johnson & Johnson), Synaptive Medical, Inc., Shenzhen Institutes of Advanced Technology (SIAT), DePuy Synthes (Johnson & Johnson), Zimmer Biomet Holdings, Inc. / Medtech, Renishaw plc, Mazor Robotics Ltd., Renishaw plc, Brainlab AG, Siemens Healthineers and among others.
Robots can perform technically complex, repetitive tasks with great precision, making them suitable for use in a wide range of neurosurgical procedures. In functional neurosurgery field, robotic systems have simplified the sEEG electrode insertion process by eliminating human interpretation and manipulation of wireframe and arc coordinate systems, this reduces orientation errors and thus improves precision. The robots are also suitable for performing DBS electrode placements on deep-seated targets with sub-millimeter precision. Robots provide the surgeon with various degrees of freedom and also provide unique and frame-based & frameless registration techniques for pre-operative imaging landmarks. These robots also gives the surgeon haptic feedback and enables the surgeon to freely manipulate the surgical arm.
The economic advantages, higher precision and improved quality in the industrial robotic applications have stimulated robot applications in the neurosurgery. Some other applications of robotics in neurosurgery include spinal surgery, intracranial biopsy and functional neurosurgery. These neurosurgical robots have considerable operational advantages over neurosurgeons. These types of robots are very reliable neuro-robots that allow to perform the same procedure over & over without change, fatigue or boredom. These robots have near absolute geometric precision and are impervious to bio-hazards & hash environments. They can work through very narrow & long surgical corridors, which are more suitable for brain surgery, an organ especially suitable for robotic application. These types of robots can also see around corners, which are out of the neurosurgeon’s line of sight during operations, and somehow the robots extend the visual and manual dexterity of neurosurgeons beyond their limits.
It is predicted that future of the North-America neurosurgical robotics market will be bright on account of increase in incidence of neurological disorders, rise in the number of neurosurgery performed coupled with increase in the purchasing power of hospitals during the forecast period.
