Surgical Robotics Use Up

A new JAMA study shows that surgical robotics use is up by up to 15% since 2012:

Findings  In this cohort study of 169 404 patients in 73 hospitals, the use of robotic surgery for all general surgery procedures increased from 1.8% to 15.1% from 2012 to 2018. Hospitals that launched robotic surgery programs had a broad and immediate increase in the use of robotic surgery, which was associated with a decrease in traditional laparoscopic minimally invasive surgery.

This market is estimated to grow to $100 billion dollars by 2024.
