US Procedure Numbers for Laparoscopic Devices 2017 - MedPro - Research and Markets

The "US Procedure Numbers for Laparoscopic Devices 2017 - MedPro" report has been added to Research and Markets' offering.

There are two related overarching trends that apply to the majority of the procedures included in this report. Firstly, in almost every procedure included, the proportions of cases done using laparoscopy are increasing at the expense of the open approach. Secondly, because the key benefit of laparoscopy is the reduction in recovery time following surgery, the average hospital stay is effectively reduced; many of these procedures are able to be performed in an outpatient setting. This is beneficial because outpatient surgery often ends up costing significantly less than inpatient surgery.

Two notable patterns emerge from the data that support the validity of two important trends. The included procedures are increasingly being performed laparoscopically and in outpatient settings.

Since its inception, minimally invasive surgery has become increasingly advanced as more sophisticated technology continues to be developed in order to maximize the clinical benefits of this approach. Laparoscopy is the most popular form of minimally invasive surgery. This technique continues to gain traction as an increasing number of surgeons continue to recommend this approach based on its notable clinical benefits. Many procedures that have been traditionally performed using an open approach are now often performed using laparoscopy.
