Growth in the utilization of spine surgery technologies will be driven by a number of factors, including:


  • The ageing population worldwide
  • Increasing incidence of obesity
  • A growing middle class in developing countries, with the ability to pay out of pocket for spine surgery
  • Improving worldwide economy
  • Technological device enhancements, leading to improved surgical results
  • Developments in minimally invasive spine surgery (MISS) devices driving a strong increase in MISS, with its numerous advantages
  • In the US, improvements in reimbursement as clinical trials demonstrate the efficacy of treatments using the devices
  • US healthcare reform leading to medical insurance coverage for more people, allowing those suffering from intractable back pain to receive surgical treatment
