Orthopedic devices are used to treat the disorders and injuries of the musculoskeletal system of human body. Spinal surgery includes devices used in the surgical treatment of degenerative disc diseases, intra-vertebral fractures and scoliosis. Spinal fusion is a surgical procedure that involves joining two vertebrae in the spine to form a single solid bone, with the involvement of certain devices, in order to relieve pain.

Understanding market size can be crucial to evaluate opportunities and make informed decisions about market entry and exit. Medical device companies can identify attractive segments in respective markets as well as develop marketing strategies based on forecasts for those segments.
The spine is made of 33 individual bones known as vertebra. The vertebrae are numbered and divided into regions: cervical (7), thoracic (12), lumbar (5), sacrum (5-fused), and coccyx (4-fused). Spinal fusion procedures are mainly performed on cervical and thoraco-lumbar regions. Spinal fusion is a surgical procedure that involves joining two vertebrae in the spine to form a single solid bone, with the involvement of certain devices, in order to relieve pain. Spinal fusion is performed by conventional and Minimally Invasive Surgery (MIS) methods. Conventional methods include all open surgical methods that used for performing spinal procedures. Depending on the site of incision (surgical approach), thoraco-lumbar fusion procedures are divided into anterior, posterior and lateral fusion procedures. Depending on the level of surgery performed, cervical fusion procedures are classified into one-level and two-level whereas thoraco-lumbar fusion procedures are classified into one, two and three-level. One-level, two-level and three-level surgeries involve the fusion of two, three and four vertebral segments respectively. Conventional methods of spinal fusion procedures are tracked whereas MIS fusion procedures are excluded. Spinal plating systems, Pedicle screw systems, Interbody devices are the devices used in conventional spinal fusion procedures. Spinal plating systems, Pedicle screw systems and Interbody devices are covered under this segment. The Spinal Plating System is an implant used to treat patients with degenerative disc disease, spondylolisthesis, spinal stenosis or fractures. Pedicle Screws are placed above and below the vertebrae in a spinal fusion procedure to add extra support and strength during the healing process. Interbody fusion cage devices use a hollow threaded titanium or carbon fiber cylinder to fuse two vertebrae together to treat degenerative disc disease to provide fixation.
The spinal fusion market in the UAE can expand or contract due to a variety of reasons including population demographics, disease incidence and prevalence, macroeconomic issues, and geopolitical considerations. Disruption to a market could be caused by a sudden, unexpected change in these factors, but it could also be driven by changes in clinical practice, leading to a change in diagnosis or treatment of patients, as part of a process to generally improve medical practice.
