Reading Time: 2 minutes

COLUMBUS, Ohio, Aug. 14, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — For the fifth time, Inc. magazine has named ARCOS® LLC to the Inc. 5000, a list of the fastest-growing private companies in the United States. This year, ARCOS ranked No. 3,295 on the list. ARCOS delivers SaaS solutions for: managing resources; ensuring accurate, compliant shift scheduling; and automatically planning for all types of events.

“Appearing on this year’s Inc. 5000 list is due, in part, to our work expanding our resource management cloud-based platform for utility companies and helping other critical infrastructure industries like airlines and manufacturing automate the way they manage their resources,” said ARCOS CEO Bruce Duff. “There’s always a demand to make sure people are where they need to be to restore service, keep planes flying or run production lines.”

According to Inc. Media, “Companies that made the list, on average, have grown sixfold since 2015.”

Complete results of the Inc. 5000, including company profiles and an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, region, and other criteria, is at

“This is your fifth time on the Inc. 5000, which is a truly extraordinary accomplishment,” wrote Inc. Editor-In-Chief James Ledbetter in a letter to Duff. “Of the tens of thousands of companies that have applied to the Inc. 5000 over the years, only a fraction have made the list more than once. A mere four percent of companies have made the list five times.”

The 2019 Inc. 5000 is ranked according to percentage revenue growth when comparing 2015 to 2018. To qualify, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by March 31, 2015.

Reading Time: 3 minutes

Acumen Research and Consulting, Recently Published Report on “Minimally Invasive Surgery Market Size, Share, Growth Opportunities and Forecast, 2019 – 2026”.

LOS ANGELES, Dec. 12, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The global minimally invasive surgery market is expected to grow at a CAGR of around 9.6% from 2019 to 2026 and reach the market value of around US$ 33.8 billion by 2026.

Geographically, North America held the largest share of the market in 2018 and is anticipated to maintain its dominance during the forecast period. This can be attributed to high adoption of minimally invasive surgeries due to technological advancement, more awareness about minimally invasive surgery’s advantages such as reducing surgery time, minimal or no surgical incision, lesser chance of surgical site infection, and decreased in overall healthcare cost, presence of abundant ambulatory surgery centers, local presence of market players, and availability of reimbursement for these surgeries. However, Asia Pacific is expected to witness the fastest growth during the forecast period due to a large volume of targeted patients, investment by market players, increasing healthcare expenditure and technological adoption, supportive government regulations for the approval & commercialization of noninvasive devices, and growing disposable income. For instance, in November 2017, Johnson & Johnson’s Ethicon opened a facility in China with an investment of USD 180 million. The factory is expected to start its production of open surgical and minimally invasive solutions in 2019.

Based on the product, the minimally invasive surgery market is divided into handheld instruments, electrosurgical instruments, guiding devices, inflation systems, auxiliary instruments, and cutter instruments. The handheld instrument segment accounted for the largest share of the market in 2018. Technological advancement, low-cost devices, and the ability to ensure easier access during surgery without damage to the patient’s body are the key factors for the high demand for handheld instruments. The application of these instruments in a wide range of minimally invasive surgeries is anticipated to boost the market in the coming years as well.

Based on the application, the market has been segmented into cardiothoracic surgery, gastrointestinal surgery, orthopedic surgery, gynecological surgery, vascular surgery, cosmetic/bariatric surgery, urological surgery, and others. Others segment include dental surgery, ENT/respiratory surgery, and neurological surgery. Orthopedic surgeries accounted for the maximum share of the market in 2018 due to a large volume of surgeries, the development of various minimally invasive surgeries for orthopedic injuries, and the introduction of the MIS approach in knee and hip replacement process. However, an increasing number of cardiothoracic disease patients is expected to propel the minimally invasive surgery market at the fastest rate.   

Based on the end-user, the market has been categorized into hospitals, ambulatory surgery centers, and research institutes. Hospitals accounted for the major share of the market in 2018. However, ambulatory surgery centers are expected to observe the fastest growth during the forecast period as these centers offer surgeries at greater flexibility of scheduling and lower costs as compared to hospitals.

  • In February 2019, Huntington Hospital-acquired two da Vinci Xi Surgical Systems, a next generation in robotic surgery equipment, used for minimally invasive surgery. The system can be optimized for a large number of surgeries in the area of thoracic, urology, gynecology, general, and colorectal surgery. With this acquisition, Huntington hospital has three da Vinci Xi Systems which made this hospital one of the largest robotic surgical centers in the Los Angeles area.
