BLK-Max Hospital Strengthens its Robotic Surgical Program, Introduces Next Generation Robotic System for specialised Joint Surgeries
New Delhi, December 9th, 2022: North India’s leading healthcare provider, BLK-Max Super Speciality Hospital today announced expansion of its Robotic Surgical Program with the introduction of artificial intelligence enabled robotic system for Joint replacement surgeries.
This next generation robotic system for joint replacement works on artificial intelligence and helps surgeons in achieving more precision & accuracy and preserving more natural bone, minimal blood loss and ensuring a well-balanced joint.
Introduction of robot for joint replacement at BLK-Max Hospital will allow patients to benefit from combination of human insight and experience of senior clinicians backed by robust technology.The technology is engineered to replicate a patient’s individual joint structure, allowing for the relief of pain from failed replacements. The robotic device imitates the joints’ regular motion patterns, so minimising any excessive stress on the muscles, nerves, tendons and sinews. Robot aids the surgeon in achieving accuracy, alignment, and balance.
Dr. Bhushan Nariani, Senior Director and Head, Centre for Joint Replacement, BLK-Max Super Specialty Hospital said, “This new robotic navigation technology allows the surgeon to pre-plan the surgery by assessing the individual patient’s disease state and predicting the joint stability over the full range of motion. This ensures precision and reduces the chances of malalignment of implants”.
The advantages of robotic joint surgery over conventional joint replacement procedures are numerous. These benefits include fewer incisions, accuracy, better results, quicker relief, quicker convalescence, and shorter recovery times.
Commenting on launch of robot for joint replacement, Dr. Mradul Kaushik, Senior Director of Operations and Planning and Chief Operating Officer, Cluster-1, Max Healthcare said: “Max Healthcare has been a pioneer in introducing state-of-the-art and best-in-class technologies at our Network hospitals to improve patient safety, treatment outcomes and enhance patient experience. Robot assisted surgeries has become a key tool for healthcare professionals to perform surgeries and are now being used for almost all specialities. We are excited to expand our robotic surgery program and introduce next generation robot for joint replacement at BLK-Max Hospital.”
Currently, BLK-Max Hospital has two Da Vinci Xi robots and they are used in performing surgical procedures across specialties including cancer, liver and kidney transplants, heart, urology, gynaecology, paediatric. BLK-Max Hospital has conducted more than 1200 robotic surgeries in various specialties with success to date.
