Reportlinker Adds Spinal Surgical Devices: Technologies and Global Markets
Date:9/23/2010

changes can be evidenced radiographically in nearly all people, although only a small percentage of these changes will produce symptomatic conditions. The world's population is aging at an unprecedented rate, and as this continues, the rate of degenerative spinal conditions is also expected to escalate.

Surgical treatment of spinal conditions has been marred in controversy. Fusion, a treatment largely abandoned by other orthopedic disciplines because of the resulting limited range of motion, is still the treatment of choice for spinal surgical intervention. Innovation in both devices and techniques in spine surgery was largely stagnant in the 1980s and early 1990s. Technological advances in both surgical approaches and spinal implants, however, are once again flourishing, making spine the fastest-growing segment of the global orthopedics market. 

This growth, although driven in part by escalating procedural volume, is also the result of excitement in emerging technologies in the non-fusion, or motion-preservation, segment. Initial euphoria has been dampened both by hardware durability issues and reimbursement challenges, but hope persists that the motion preservation market will drive future expansion in the spine industry through positive patient outcomes and economic efficiencies resulting from less-invasive surgeries. Biologics is another rapidly evolving segment of spinal orthopedics that is garnering great enthusiasm. Its growth prospects are high for making current techniques more effective and possibly altering the future landscape of spine surgery with the creation of technologies that actually regenerate spinal components.

STUDY GOALS AND OBJECTIVESThe technologies in this report—implantable spinal prosthetics and hardware—are pivotal to improving the quality of life for the tens of millions worldwide who suffer from back pain and neurological deficit resulting from common spinal co
