Surgical Procedures Market by Type (Gastrointestinal, Cardiovascular, Dental, Cosmetic, Urologic, Ophthalmic, Orthopedic, ENT, Gynecologic Surgical Procedures), Channel (Physician Offices, Hospitals, (Inpatient, Outpatient), ASC) - US forecasts to 2027
The surgical procedures market size is projected to reach 122,881.5 thousand procedures by 2027, at a CAGR of 3.0% during the forecast period. The growth of this market is mainly attributed to the growing prevalence of cancer, growth in geriatric population, rise in chronic diseases, and technological advancements in surgical procedures. On the other hand, stringent regulations and the high cost of medical devices and shortage of surgeons is expected to restrain the growth of this market. With an aging US population and an increase in the incidence of chronic disease, patients will require more surgical procedures over their lifetime. The increasing life span of the US population is also boosting the need for surgical procedures. While the demand for surgeons is steadily increasing, the supply of future surgeons is not rising at the same rate. Therefore, this shortage is likely to reduce the number of surgeries performed per year.

Surgical Procedures Market Dynamics
Drivers: Growing prevalence of cancer requiring surgical treatment
Surgery is a fundamental modality for the curative and palliative treatment of most cancers in countries across all income settings. In high-income countries (HICs) like the US, where the most common solid organ malignant cancers, such as breast & colon cancers, are more likely to be successfully diagnosed at early stages, surgical resection provides definitive locoregional control of the primary tumor. When combined with appropriately selected adjuvant systemic treatment and radiotherapy, this approach has significant curative potential.
In 2021, an estimated 1.9 million new cancer cases were diagnosed in the US, and 608,570 people will die from the disease—up from 1.8 million new cancer cases and 606,520 cancer deaths in 2020 (Source: American Cancer Society). The most common cancers are breast cancer, lung & bronchus cancer, prostate cancer, colon & rectum cancer, bladder cancer, and kidney & renal pelvis cancer. Prostate, lung, and colorectal cancers account for an estimated 43% of all cancers diagnosed in men in 2020. For women, the three most common cancers are breast, lung, and colorectal, and they will account for an estimated 50% of all new cancer diagnoses in women in 2020 (Source: National Cancer Institute). The removal of cancerous tissue using surgery is the preferred treatment choice in the case of solid tumors contained in one area.
Restraints: Shortage of surgeons
The growth in the geriatric population increases the burden on the medical system. Older individuals require more medical services and care as compared to younger counterparts. There will be increased demand for surgeons and a perioperative workforce with competency in senior care. The US is already experiencing shortages in nine of ten surgical specialties, with orthopedic surgery, general surgery, and urology having the largest surgeon deficits for specialties performing major surgery.
A 2019 Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) report predicted a shortage of 23,000 surgeons in 2032 and 28,700 by 2033 in the US. This projected shortfall range is based on a model that accounts for population projections, demand & supply projections, estimates of physician specialty choice, recently revised federal health professional shortage area designations for primary care and mental health, and lower projections of future insurance coverage expansion. More than two of every five active physicians in the US will reach 65 or older within ten years; such factors within the US population drive the need for more healthcare workers. For example, from 2019 to 2031, the population is projected to grow by 10.6%, increasing 42.4% of those aged 65 and above.
Opportunities: Increasing adoption of outpatient surgeries
Outpatient surgery, also known as ambulatory surgery, day surgery, day case surgery, or same-day surgery, is surgery that does not require an overnight hospital stay. The term outpatient means patients may enter and leave the facility on the same day. The advantages of outpatient surgery over inpatient surgery include greater convenience and reduced costs. Common procedures that are often done on an outpatient basis include
- Hernia repair
- Gallbladder removal
- Some kinds of cosmetic surgery
- Cataract surgery
- Mole removal
- Arthroscopy (provider looks inside a joint using a special camera)
Medical procedures are moving into outpatient facilities due to technological advances such as minimally invasive surgical procedures and value-based care incentives. Health plans and government program payment policies support providing services in lower-cost care settings, including outpatient facilities. Health systems have also been acquiring or partnering with physicians and physician practices, further driving the volume of services performed in outpatient settings.
Challenges: Surgical errors
Surgical errors are a serious public health problem and a leading cause of death in the US. Medical errors are a leading cause of injury and avoidable harm in health care systems. Globally, the cost associated with medication errors has been estimated at USD 42 billion annually, and unsafe surgical care procedures cause complications in up to 25% of patients. According to NCBI, at least 4000 surgical errors occur each year in the US. Some of the causes of surgical errors include the following:
- Lack of adequate surgeon training and education: Inadequate skills and training are frequently the cause of surgical errors.
- Insufficient planning: Occasionally, surgeons and other operating room professionals may not adequately prepare for procedures. Proper planning and preparation ensure that all necessary instruments are sterile and available for use, all required equipment is available and in working order, and that each step in the procedure has been thoroughly discussed.
- Human error: Human error is one of the most frequent causes of surgical mistakes. Surgeons may make mistakes regarding incisions or using improper techniques. Additionally, nurses and anesthesiologists responsible for monitoring patients during surgery may forget to check vitals or administer too much medication.
- Fatigue: Even though many hospitals place mandatory limits on the number of hours surgeons can go without rest, doctors are often overworked and exhausted. This lack of rest can result in serious errors during surgery.
