Surgical instrument is a specially designed devices mainly used to perform particular action or functioned to produce desired effects during surgery .Several kinds of surgical instruments and tools have been discovered which are generally used in surgery, while others are designed for specific procedures during surgery. Though there are various types of surgical instruments are available but some of surgery requires defined surgical instrument that must work together to perform whole process of surgery successful and effectively. Surgical probes are among the many surgical instruments that are very important in the operation processes. Surgical probes are the instruments are specially designed to help in performing specific functions to help in achieving the desired goals in a surgical operation. Surgical probe is a slender rod of flexible or rigid material, with a blunt bulbous tip. Surgical probe is a precisely designed implement used during surgery that helps in modifying the biological tissues and for exploring wounds, fistulae, sinuses, and other cavities. As, It is concerned with patient health doctors became very much cautious to carry all procedures in the operation orderly and effectively by using specific instrument .Therefore, Surgical probes market has been in demand as it helps in displaying the body tissues in any image guided surgery as it finds the probe position and that are beneath it. . Each probe tip is equipped with a custom fit detection crystal to maximize the sensitivity. Selection of the probes is differ according to application of surgery .It has been observed the gamma probes have excellent tungsten side shielding, so activity from nearby sources won’t interfere with your actual measurements.
The market is driven by increase in the number of surgical procedures which leads to rising in the demand for specific surgical tools and equipment. Moreover, increasing in incidence of chronic diseases especially with geriatric based population also leading to increase demand for surgical instruments. Additionally, taking account of higher expenditure on healthcare, rising demand of reconstructive and plastic surgery and advancement of technology are expected to boost surgical probe market in the near future. On the other hand, lack of sufficient reimbursement and stringent government regulations may restraint the growth of the market during the forecast period.
Based on product type, the global Surgical Probes market is divided into following
Based on the application, the global Surgical Probes market is divided into following
Based on End user, the global Surgical Probes market is divided into following
On the basis of the product type the global Surgical Probes market is segmented into High Probe, Flex probe, Wireless probe, Laparoscopic probe, Midi probe, Beta probe, PET probe and Crystal control unit probe etc. A wide selection of probes is designed for different surgical applications such as in the cases of chronic diseases biopsy for melanoma, in surgical treatment of cancer like breast cancer, prostate cancer. Currently, High sensitivity straight probe are available in a wireless gamma probe optimized for biopsy for Melanoma. Flex Probe is used to detect whether a straight or angled probe is more suitable for the localization of lymph nodes in the breast cancer. Midi probe is an especially in open surgeries with small operation wounds and is also used for the head and neck region.
Based on the end user, the global Surgical Probes market is divided into following into Tertiary hospitals and clinics. Tertiary hospitals are expected to have market share than the clinics over the forecast period.
On the basis of geography, the global Surgical Probes market is segmented into five key regions: North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia-Pacific and the Middle East & Africa. North America represents major share in the global surgical equipment market followed by Europe and Asia-Pacific. The growth in North America and Europe is primarily driven by favorable regulatory framework, advent of new technologies, high disposal income of the consumers and growing ageing population. However, Asia-pacific is expected grow gradually owing to increase in prevalence of chronic diseases that require surgical procedures, rising unmet healthcare needs, improving healthcare infrastructure in the region.
Major players in the global Surgical Probes market include Carefusion Corporation, Censis Technologies Inc., Conmed Corporation, Getinge Group, Haldor Advanced Technologies, and KLS martin group, Zimmer Holdings Inc., Medtronic Inc., Mindray DS Inc., Smith & Nephew PLC, Stryker Corporation and Surgipro, Inc.
