NEW YORK, Jan. 29 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportlinker.com announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue:

Computer Assisted Surgical (CAS) Systems - A World Market Review

http://www.reportlinker.com/p0164221/Computer-Assisted-Surgical-CAS-Systems---A-World-Market-Review.html

Technological advancements in information technology (IT) have become essential in several critical activities such as surgery to significantly enhance their outcomes. Integration of science and engineering has created intelligent computer assisted surgical systems and medical robotics that are clinically proactive. Computers, with several microprocessor enabled surgical equipment and instruments, offer assistance and enable surgeons to perform critical procedures with enhanced ease and with higher level of accuracy and safety. The sophisticated intelligent systems aid in improving existing surgical procedures, and provide innovative approaches to critical medical problems.

Computer Assisted Surgical (CAS) systems plays a pivotal role in offering enhanced healthcare services to people, while considerably reducing expenses. Besides, CAS technologies aid patients as they experience less pain and shorter recovery periods, which in turn lead to shorter hospital stays and minimum hospital bills. Additionally, surgeons are increasingly using CAS technologies to perform critical and delicate surgical procedures, wherein the surgeon cannot directly see within the patient's body.

These and other market data and trends are presented in "Computer Assisted Surgical (CAS) Systems: World Market Review" by BizAcumen, Inc. Our reports are designed to be most comprehensive in geographic coverage and vertical market analyses.
