CHENNAI: Apollo Institute of Orthopaedics, a dedicated Centre for joint replacements successfully completed 370 robotic orthopaedic procedures over 10 months since the launch. Technological advancements such as robotic arm-assisted technology is revolutionising knee and hip replacement surgeries enabling higher accuracy and significantly improved patient outcome versus the conventional technique.
Robotic technology helps the surgeon to achieve accuracy, alignment, and balance during the actual surgery. With the help of a robotic arm the surgeon will shape the surrounding bone before placing the knee implant and will be able to see the knee and position the implant properly. This enables the surgeon to map out incisions and there will be no instrument slipping or injury to other tissues. This procedure is has revolutionised knee replacement concept.
Dr Madan Mohan Reddy, Joint Replacement Surgeon, Apollo Hospitals said, “With the robotic arm, reproduction of precise bone cuts for patients can be done, every single time, first on a virtual 3D model and then in the operation theatre. The success rate and the accuracy is cent per cent. Patients recover faster and relief is long-lasting.”
