Growth in the Surgical Device Market and Minimally Invasive Procedures

At Swiss Precision Machining, our capabilities include applications within the medical device industry. By utilizing the latest technology in CNC Swiss Style Screw Machines and CNC Vertical Machining Centers, we are able to stay competitive while still offering quality products. We’re proud to be involved in this most-important of industries. As such, we follow developments within it very closely. Below, a sampling of the latest trends:

The Surgical Equipment Market Is Growing

The market for surgical handheld instruments has recently been forecasted to grow at the highest rate of all surgical equipment through 2019. Sales for surgical sutures and staples are also expected to boom, as higher standards for hospital technology spread globally. Within this segment, absorbable sutures will be in much greater demand than non-absorbable, as the latter’s use increasingly becomes confined to long-term injuries.

Minimally Invasive Procedures Will Increase In Demand

Likewise, significant growth has been predicted for the minimally invasive surgical procedure market. Causes for such growth include an aging population and rapid advances in medical technology. Segments of the surgery market that involve minimally invasive technologies include orthopedic, cosmetic, breast, vascular, thoracic, gynecological, bariatric, cardiac, gastrointestinal and urological. As the advantages of such procedures became more well-known, they will become more and more commonplace. Some such advantages are:

  • More precise incision
  • Minimization of blood loss
  • Fewer reported complications
  • Speedier recovery
  • Shortening of period spent in hospital

By purchasing, developing, and mastering the world’s most advanced machinery, SPM is able to adapt with the ever-evolving technologies in industries such as health and medical devices. The Swiss Style CNC Turning Centers lend themselves to these types of products that require tight tolerancing, numerous dimensions and consistent high quality. Our CNC Vertical Milling Department further compliments our capabilities with the ability to run other complex parts suited to the Medical Industry.  As we enter an era of unprecedented technological growth within the surgical device segment of this field, we understand the complex specifications these products require.
