Medical robots ‘will revolutionise surgery’

Surgical robots will transform the face of many surgical procedures, according to business consultancy company Frost & Sullivan. 

According to the firm, demand is particularly high for prostatectomy and hysterectomy procedures, as well as other minimally invasive surgeries.

Surgical robots are gaining worldwide acceptance as they appear to enhance a surgeon’s abilities in terms of surgical imaging, navigation, planning and instrument manipulation.

Manufacturers of these machines are attempting to reduce the footprint of existing robotic systems and are finding ways to lessen the invasiveness of surgical procedures by making advancements in single port, natural orifice, and swarm robotic technologies.

The analysis from Frost & Sullivan has discovered that the global surgical robotics market is top heavy, with leading companies possessing cutting-edge technologies and large patent libraries. 

In addition, the consultancy firm found that the industry had a wealth of smaller participants also working on innovations in medical robotics.

According to Frost & Sullivan, the technology has now entered every major surgical discipline, despite the extended time-to-market, which is caused by strict regulatory requirements, complex manufacturing processes, and extensive research and development.

Geethu Roshan Verghese, technical insights research analyst at the firm, said: “The global demand for surgical robots is particularly high for prostatectomy and hysterectomy surgeries, as they are believed to offer greater safety, accuracy, and precision, and in turn leading to better clinical outcomes for the surgeon, patient and hospital management.”

She added that the market is set to prosper further due to rising awareness, higher per capita income, and a growing aging population.

However, a lack of randomised trials coupled with an absence of appropriate comparison and outcome registries for robotic surgeries has raised questions regarding the efficacy of surgical robots. 

Frost & Sullivan believe this will only be a short-term restraint as the amount of robust clinical evidence to support the use of the machines is likely to increase over the coming years. Companies within the market are attempting to resolve this issue by seeking feedback from customers.
