[Report Description]Minimally-invasive surgeries (MIS) create less post-operative pain, and patients receive smaller dosages of pain killers. As there are minimal cuts or stitches involved, the hospital stay is relatively shorter, and patients need not visit the hospital frequently. Traditional open surgeries involve long incisions made through the muscles, and these muscles take a considerable amount of time to heal, whereas MIS procedures involve smaller incisions, leading to a quicker recovery. Besides, the body scars involved in MIS are barely noticeable. The main advantage of MIS over the traditional open surgeries is the higher precision due to video-assisted equipment, which produces a better and magnified image of the organs or body parts being operated. These surgeries are gaining wider acceptance among the geriatric population, due to the relatively shorter recovery time. Developed countries like Germany have much more awareness regarding these advanced devices and have a much higher adoption rate than most countries. Moreover, the benefits associated with minimally invasive surgeries are also increasing the adoption rate of MIS devices. These factors are expected to increase the overall growth of the market over the forecast period.
