General Surgery Devices market covers wide-ranging devices used in diagnostic and surgical procedures primarily for the gastrointestinal tract, abdomen, and pelvis. Image-guided surgery (IGS) is a surgical procedure where the surgeon uses tracked surgical instruments in conjunction with preoperative or intraoperative images in order to directly or indirectly guide the procedure. IGS systems use cameras, ultrasonic, electromagnetic or a combination of fields to capture and relay the patient’s anatomy and the surgeon’s precise movements in relation to the patient, to computer monitors in the operating room or to augmented reality headsets. The device is used to assist surgeons with identifying anatomic landmarks and surgical planes between the prostate and neurovascular bundles during nerve-sparing procedures.

Innovations in the medical devices sector are linked to the development of new approaches, processes, or technologies for treating, diagnosing, and managing disease in response to demand from healthcare for better patient outcomes and reduce healthcare costs.

Based on an analysis of GlobalData’s Medical Intelligence Center pipeline product database, these actively developed Image guided surgery pipeline devices are all expected to be approved within the next ten years.

Currently, private organizations, public entities and institutions are working on the development of Image guided surgery devices. Overall, most of these Image guided surgery pipeline devices are being developed by private entities.
