Brazil witnessed a sharp rise of 120% in number of plastic surgeries from 2009 to 2012. The market is categorized into monitoring & visualization devices, endoscopy devices, and surgical devices (medical robotics surgery, electrosurgical devices, and ablation devices) on the basis of types of devices used in minimally invasive surgeries. The cardiac surgery market reported the highest revenue share in the minimally invasive surgery market in 2013 among all minimal invasive surgeries. The cosmetic surgery market as well as the orthopedic surgery market are projected to record highest and second highest growth respectively over 2014-2020.
