The development of safe practices and improved tools have allowed physicians to perform surgical procedures faster and safer than at any other time in history and has also reduced surgical procedure costs. Rapid adoption of laparoscopy in the 1990s was a start to this development. However, as with any industry, there are trends that continue to emerge due to advancement of technologies and issues that restrain the industry from moving forward with those advancements.
This report is a global analysis and 2013 Surgical Procedure volume estimates are provided for the following countries:
- United States

Regional segmentation is also provided for US Europe, Asia, Rest of World.
Over the past decade there has been a slow shift from all surgery done at the hospital to many surgeries done at outpatient surgical centers and surgeons' offices. Previously, the competition was limited to other hospitals in the area but that has changed creating issues for hospitals and opportunities for stand-alone surgery centers.
The days of operating as usual are over and hospitals must compete aggressively at a local level for surgical procedure volumes, which translates to income. Granted many of the large and open surgeries will not be candidates for surgery centers and physician offices but with the advancement of minimally invasive techniques there are a number of procedures moving into the capacity of day surgery and outpatient centers.
Physicians are opting to perform 60-70% of their surgeries in surgery centers, moving away from the hospital environment. To counter this, hospitals are increasing media exposure to the general public by way of bi-weekly newsletters, interactive websites and aggressive advertisement to patients. These developments are discussed in the report.
