The digital revolution looks to be sweeping across different industries, which are now fully embracing technologies around connectivity, big data and artificial intelligence to drive innovation and better outcomes. Health care seems to have come late to this party, but changes are happening as medtech companies make a concerted effort to incorporate the advanced computing capabilities needed to turn devices into smart machines that are constantly learning and adapting. Surgery is one area that will benefit from these smart technologies and Scott Huennekens, CEO of Verb Surgical, tells Medtech Insight how the J&J/Verily joint venture aims to make this happen.
Medtech Insight recently caught up with a top executive at robotic surgery leader Intuitive Surgical at the Exponential Medicine Conference in San Diego. Check out our podcast interview with VP of Strategy, Catherine Mohr, about future plans at her company and much more.
Rivals Catching Up To Intuitive Surgical In Fast-Growing, Fast-Innovating Robotic-Assisted Devices Market
The global market for robotically assisted systems (RAS) is expected to reach $5.3bn by 2021, a CAGR of 11.7%. Meddevicetracker expects this hot market, long-dominated by Intuitive Surgical's da Vinci systems, to see rising competition from innovative companies developing robotic systems that are smaller, portable and less costly and offer surgeons innovative features that allow them to perform even more precise and user-friendly, complex surgeries. In this feature, we'll take a closer look at the overall market, highlighting the competitive landscape as well as limiters and growth opportunities. We'll also take a deep dive into RAS systems and their applications. Surgeons of various specialties provide key insights about the pros and cons of different systems.
Big Promise For TransEnterix Robotic-Surgery Device, But Probably Won't Undermine Intuitive's Market
FDA's recent clearance of TransEnterix's Senhance System signals broad potential for robotically-assisted surgeries but the device is more likely to grow its own space than compete directly with Intuitive Surgical's daVinci products in many cases, analysts suggest.
