The growth of the US surgical procedures market is largely driven by the growing prevalence of chronic diseases, the rising geriatric population, and increased investment in health facilities. On the other hand, stringent regulations and the high cost of medical devices are major restraints in the market.

The emergence of the COVID-19 pandemic has changed the delivery of medical care. The increased pressure due to the growing rate of hospitalization of COVID-19 patients led to the re-profiling of many hospitals and departments for treating patients with COVID-19. Consequently, many elective surgeries were canceled or postponed worldwide to reserve or redirect the available limited capacities and resources (like hospital beds and patient care professionals) toward COVID-19 patient care and to reduce the spread of the virus.

Moreover, from 2019–2020, the procedural volume for all surgeries declined substantially, but it is expected to increase post-pandemic 2021–2022 due to the backlog emerging from this delay. According to a study by Stanford Medicine, after the March 2020 COVID-19 shutdown, nonurgent surgery rates dropped, but within months they bounced back and remained at pre-pandemic levels. There was a 48% decrease in surgical volume during the seven weeks after mid-March when the CMS recommended that hospitals minimize, postpone, or cancel elective surgeries. By July 2020, the nation's hospitals had ramped up surgical operations with improved safety protocols, and surgery rates began to return to their 2019 levels. By the end of the year, the total volume of surgeries was only 10% below the 2019 volume.
