Orthopedic Soft Tissue Repair Surgeries Ensure High Recovery Rates: Market Treads on a Promising Growth Path
Soft-tissue injury management is a challenging and ever evolving field of orthopedic surgery. While the basic rule of addressing life-threatening conditions before limbs in the initial evaluation of patients with critical injuries has not changed, and will perhaps never change, many new microsurgical techniques and orthoplastics approaches have made limb recovery possible even in the most severe cases of soft tissue injuries.
New developments in the myriad of surgical procedures practiced for the recovery of a variety of soft tissue damages are also leading to increased recovery rates of people who are aged more than 70 years, an age-bracket that usually has very low recovery rates for soft tissue damage. For a better understanding, a recent study presented at the annual meeting of American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine's (AOSSM) held in Orlando, Florida can be referred to.

The study states that the arthroscopic repair of rotator cuff injuries leads to highly effective outcomes a majority of time in athletes aged 70 years and above. Seventy seven percent of the patients studied in the research underwent arthroscopic repair of a full thickness rotator cuff injury, experienced reduced pain, improved functions, and were able to return to their sports activities at a similar level of intensity as before the injury.
Rising Athletic Activities Driving Demand for Soft Tissue Repair Surgeries:
Injuries to soft tissues such as ligaments, muscles, and tendons often occur during exercise and sports activities. Injuries such as sprains, contusions, tendinitis, strains, and bursitis are some of the commonly occurring soft-tissue injuries that can also result from simple everyday activities. Even with appropriate treatment, the recovery of soft tissues usually requires prolonged durations.
Soft tissue injuries are commonly observed in adults due to trauma, recreational activities, and overuse of tendons. Also, repetitive sports activities lead to the thinning of muscles with time, ultimately making them vulnerable to injuries.
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) states that nearly 2 million sports injuries, 30,000 cases of hospitalization, and 50,000 visits to doctors are observed in the U.S. every year. Such high incidence of sports related injuries is a big boost for orthopedic soft tissue repair surgical procedures. In other developed regions of North America and Europe, the high population of aged people, who are at high risk of soft tissue injuries and fractures, is also leading to an increased demand for a variety of orthopedic soft tissue repair treatments.

The trending demand for minimally invasive surgeries, rising number of sports associations and technological development in orthopedic surgical devices and supplementary products are also significant factors behind the rising popularity of orthopedic soft tissue surgeries across the globe.
According to research report published by Transparency Market Research, the market for orthopedic soft tissue surgeries in the U.S., Europe, and Japan had a net valuation of US$7.3 billion in 2013. The market in these three geographic regions is expected to develop at a 4.9% CAGR between 2014 and 2020 and reach US$10.2 billion by 2020.
Economic Downturn in Europe leading to Reduced Sports Funding
The rising geriatric population and increased sports activities in the U.S., Europe, and Japan are expected to keep the demand for orthopedic soft tissue surgeries high in the coming years. However, reduced sports funding in Europe owing to the prevailing economic downturn may limit demand for these surgeries to certain extent.
