ROBOTICS: How many robotic surgery procedures per year?

This is an infographic with interesting tidbits about the dispersion of the da Vinci surgical robot – the market leader in robotic laparoscopic surgery.  Here is a look at the market (there are other vendors, but this is looking at the da Vinci):

  • One quarter of US hospitals have one or more da Vinci robots
  • 79 percent of procedures using a da Vinci robot are done in the US
  • 570,000 da Vinci robotic procedures worldwide in 2014
  • This is a 178 percent increase worldwide in 5 years
  • 450,000 da Vinci robotic procedures: US 2014
  • Here is a distribution of the types of da Vinci robotic procedures: 52 percent are gynecological; 24 percent are general surgery; 20 percent are urological; and 4 percent are other
  • Incremental cost per procedure using da Vinci ranges from $3,000 to $6,000.
