For many procedures, the use of an IGS or robotic system increases the duration of the operation. Facilities and surgeons will therefore lose money as they are forced to schedule fewer procedures. This delay has decreased with newer models; however, any increase in time may reduce the number of operations that can be scheduled in a facility. This negatively impacts both surgeons and facilities, and can make potential clients less willing to pay the high costs associated with robotics systems. The Chinese surgical robotics market is extremely new; while several systems have regular sales and growing installed bases, a number of companies are planning to enter the market throughout the forecast period. This means the technology is still unfamiliar to the majority of surgeons. Since not all surgeons will be comfortable with using a robotics system, this may limit the number of procedures performed. Surgical navigation systems are often marketed by implant companies and bundled with other products, while robotics companies have traditionally been smaller and focused on a narrower range of technologies. However, partnerships have led to a series of acquisitions of smaller robotics companies by larger, more established medical device companies. Since the technologies can be considered competitors, this trend is expected to continue as robotic technology becomes more widely adopted and accepted.

Abstract
Surgery has progressed from a risky art into a sophisticated and ever-evolving scientific discipline capable of treating many diseases and conditions. Until the industrial revolution, surgeons struggled with three principal obstacles which plagued the medical profession from its infancy: bleeding, pain and infection. Recent technological advances have increased the types of procedures that are able to be performed and, more importantly, revolutionized the way in which these procedures can be performed.
