U.S. OPHTHALMIC SURGERY PROCEDURE VOLUMES

36 Pages | 7 Exhibits | 2009 Analysis | Forecasts Through 2015

OVERVIEW:
The number of surgical procedures performed in the United States (U.S.) is increasing; however, the share of inpatient hospitalizations is decreasing in favor of patient visits to freestanding clinics and physician offices. Office-based procedures are projected to grow at a compound annual rate of 5.4% over the forecast period covered by this report; this is a slower rate than during the past decade due to the curtailment in demand for elective surgery during the 2009 to 2010 period due adverse economic conditions. (These same economic conditions are expected to contribute to the overall slowdown in elective procedures in other outpatient facilities during this period.) In 2007, inpatient surgical procedures accounted for approximately 35% of all surgical procedures performed in the U.S. In the year 2015, approximately 25.0% of all surgical procedures are expected to be inpatient procedures; the remaining surgeries are expected to be performed in freestanding facilities, physician offices, or in hospitals as outpatient procedures. Outpatient settings offer same-day surgery and improved, less invasive surgical techniques to speed patient recovery. Treatment advances such as new drug therapy also have contributed to fewer and shorter hospital stays.
