Minimally invasive surgeries (MIS) cause less post-operative pain, when compared to normal open surgeries and, hence, receive smaller dosages of pain killers. As there are no cuts or stiches involved in the surgery, hospital stay is reduced, and patients are not required to visit the hospital frequently. Traditional open surgeries involve long incisions that have to be made through the muscle, and these muscles take significant time to heal. Whereas, minimally invasive surgeries procedures involve smaller incisions, and leading to quicker recovery. Moreover, the body scars involved in MIS are barely noticeable. The prime advantage that MIS has over traditional open surgeries is the higher degree of precision, owing to the video-assisted equipment involved, which generate better and magnified images of the organs or body parts that are operated upon.
There is also wider acceptance rate among the old adult population, due to the relatively shorter recovery time. Benefits, such as improved patient quality of life, and the increasing patient acceptance and preference over traditional open surgeries, along with the increasing prevalence of chronic disorders, are driving the minimally invasive surgery device market. And endoscopy devices are also expected to experience a positive growth rate, due to their extensive use by the surgeons as the guide for the movement of surgical instruments and also for locating the surgical site.
