5G is expected to have a major impact on the healthcare industry, especially due to the industry’s digital transformation (which is being driven by the COVID-19 pandemic). While several application areas exist for the technology, Frost & Sullivan looks at the niche (but important) area of surgery and how 5G may revolutionize this space. Frost & Sullivan compares the different potential use-cases of 5G in surgery, that is, remote/telesurgery, real-time data access in the operating room (OR), preceptorship and proctorship, and specialized training. Different digital OR application areas are also compared, and the ones most likely to be impacted by 5G are ranked. In addition to examining the history of 5G surgical applications, Frost & Sullivan benchmarks 11 countries for their likely adoption of 5G for surgery. Various ecosystem participants, including robotic surgery companies, digital OR solution providers (OR integration, OR management), AR/VR-based surgical solution providers, and surgical navigation solution providers, are likely to be impacted by the adoption of 5G, but to varying degrees. The analysis precedes a few growth opportunities for the vendors that participate in this space.
