Elective surgery volume expected to make full recovery in 2023-24

Clearstate estimates that it will take until early 2024 to see elective surgery volume in Asia-Pacific (APAC) returning to pre-pandemic levels.

Elective surgery volume is recovering, but remains below pre-pandemic levels. In 2021 and 2022, we saw a respite in the contraction of elective surgery volume with increased vaccination rates and gradual reopening of economies in APAC. 

This led to a rebound in elective procedures during the post-vaccine period of 2021. However elective surgery volume has not fully recovered to pre-pandemic levels. Hospitals are struggling to clear the large backlog of surgery cases because of manpower challenges and capacity issues.
