NEW YORK, Oct. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue:

Global Minimally Invasive Surgery Market.(2010 - 2015)

Global Minimally Invasive Surgery Market (2008 – 2015)

The technology shift from invasive to minimally invasive surgery (MIS) has brought about significant changes in the field of medicine. MIS techniques improve surgical outcomes, reduce associated risks, and also minimize the time required for post-operative recovery and hospitalization. These factors have led a rapid growth of MIS procedures over open surgeries. While minimally invasive cosmetic surgeries are witnessing growth due to the rising levels of health- and beauty-consciousness, and minimally invasive cardiac surgery offers greater safety and cost-effectiveness than invasive techniques.

However, the high initial investments for MIS devices form a significant cause for concern. This is the case even in developed markets such as the U.S., where healthcare reforms are expected to reduce Medicare and Medicaid payments to hospitals. This is expected to reduce hospital expenditure on medical equipment. In addition to the comprehensive information on the macro-markets, this report gives a detailed analysis of critical micro-markets, which have so far remained unexplored.

Scope of the reportThis research report categorizes the global market for minimally invasive surgery devices on the basis of products, applications, technology and geography; forecasting revenues and analyzing trends in each of the following
