The United States spine navigation system market is poised for growth, according to a new iData Research report.

Here are five key trends:

 

1. The use of navigation systems for spinal surgeries is expected to grow over the next few years as the technological innovations improve imaging modalities and navigation software.

 

2. The improvements will expand system applications to a wider range of spinal procedures, leading to overall market growth.

 

3. Many spine surgeons are still performing free-hand procedures, meaning there is a large potential for growth in the market.

 

4. The spinal navigation systems with spine surgery often have both neurosurgical and spinal applications.

 

5. Navigation systems can simplify and decrease procedure times, but it can also complicate and increase procedure time in certain circumstances without any clear benefit for the surgeon. OR staff must also attend a training course for each different system, which adds cost to purchasing equipment and limit the number of procedures performed if trained staff aren't available.
