In the case of robotically-assisted minimally-invasive surgery, instead of directly moving the instruments, the surgeon uses one of two methods to control the instruments; either a direct telemanipulator or through computer control. A telemanipulator is a remote manipulator that allows the surgeon to perform the normal movements associated with the surgery whilst the robotic arms carry out those movements using end-effectors and manipulators to perform the actual surgery on the patient. In computer-controlled systems, the surgeon uses a computer to control the robotic arms and its end-effectors, though these systems can also still use telemanipulators for their input. One advantage of using the computerized method is that the surgeon does not have to be present, but can be anywhere in the world, leading to the possibility for remote surgery.
In the case of enhanced open surgery, autonomous instruments (in familiar configurations) replace traditional steel tools, performing certain actions (such as rib spreading) with much smoother, feedback-controlled motions that could be achieved by a human hand. The main object of such smart instruments is to reduce or eliminate the tissue trauma traditionally associated with open surgery without requiring more than a few minutes' training on the part of surgeons. This approach seeks to improve open surgeries, particularly cardio-thoracic, that have so far not benefited from minimally-invasive techniques.
The global Surgical Robotics Market
is expected to reach $10.60 billion by 2023. The market consists of various product segments such as surgical systems, instruments and accessories, and maintenance services. The instruments and accessories segment had the highest market value in 2016, growing at the CAGR of 11.4% during the forecast period 2017-2023. However, services (maintenance and up-gradation) are expected to grow at the highest CAGR of 12.9% during the forecast period 2017-2023.
All the major surgical robotics systems have been covered into the global surgical robotics market volume data. The market for surgical systems by value is expected to grow at the CAGR of 12.3% during the forecast period, 2017-2023. Among all surgical systems, the da Vinci surgical system accounted for the highest installation volume in 2016 and is anticipated to reach 1,123 installation units in 2023, growing at the CAGR of 8%. This can be attributed to the increasing adoption rate of da Vinci surgical robotics system for increasing rate of general surgeries, gynecology, urology, cardiothoracic and head and neck medical complications. However, the Sensei Robotic System manufactured by Hansen Medical (Auris Surgical Robots) is anticipated to grow at the highest CAGR of 22%.
