Robotic surgery comes to East India

By Staff reporter

GUWAHATI, July 29 � Apollo Gleneagles Hospitals of Kolkata was recently equipped with eastern India�s first robotic surgery system, while keeping its commitment to bring in the latest medical technology and innovations to this part of the country.

Apollo Gleneagles Institute of Robotic Surgery has the state-of-the-art �da Vinci Si robotic system� known for its most effective, least invasive surgical treatment. At present, the robotic system is attached to urology, gynaecology and general surgery units of the hospital.

Announcing the launch at a press conference here on Saturday, Apollo Gleneagles Hospitals CEO Dr Rupali Basu said, �The world over, robotic surgery is fast gaining ground as a preferred mode of surgery. Apart from the clear advantages like higher patient comfort and safety, it also helps cut down hospital stay significantly.�

The hospital�s senior consultant in urology, Dr Vinay Mahendra, who was also present at the meet, elaborated on the advantages of this innovative surgical platform that provides perfect eye-hand-instrument alignment, while giving the surgeon an enhanced 3D view of the operative field, thus making the procedures precise.

Dr Basu said all the surgeons performing robotic surgeries at Apollo Gleneagles have undergone extensive training at the Detroit, US-based Vattikuti Foundation with which the Apollo Group has medical collaboration. �We offer robotic surgeries of world class standards at costs which is just a fraction of what is charged in hospitals of advanced nations,� she added.
