Trauma and long term complications from sickle cell disease are the leading causes of orthopaedic surgery in younger patients.

"The symptoms of sickle cell disease often manifest at a later stage, by which time, the disease would have destroyed the head of the femur," states Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Ishe Zingoni. "This creates the need for a hip replacement operation. Younger patients are now willing to undergo this operation due to the availability of better treatment techniques."

New analysis from Frost & Sullivan (medicaldevices.frost.com), Opportunities in Orthopaedic Implants Market in Key West African Countries, finds that the market earned revenues of $602 million in 2008 and estimates this to exceed $2,300 million in 2015.

"Better implants and improved techniques are resulting in higher device success rates and enhanced functionality," Zingoni says. "These have, in turn, instilled greater confidence in surgeons and patients, who are now increasingly opting for surgery."

Despite the technological advances now witnessed in Nigeria and Ghana, costs of joint replacement surgeries are still prohibitive for the majority of patients. The governments of these countries are trying to ease the cost burden on citizens by investing generously in equipment and the construction of new orthopaedic hospitals. They have also increased the budget allocation for state patients, in response to the lengthening waiting lists.

Both countries are in the process of implementing national health insurance schemes, although there are significant operational challenges with the schemes in their current formats. While reimbursement is still largely unavailable for orthopaedic operations, the planned expansion to cover more specialised surgical procedures is expected to drive the sales of orthopaedic implants.

The west African orthopaedic market is also battling a shortage of trained orthopaedic surgeons. This shortfall has restricted the number of operations performed and consequently, the adoption of innovative orthopaedic technologies and products.

"To increase the uptake of new technologies, manufacturers need to equip local surgeons with the necessary skills and expertise," notes Zingoni. "Along with academic institutions, manufacturers are training local surgeons in new orthopaedic technologies and offering product training."
