Hyderabad: An rising variety of hospitals are finishing up robotic assisted surgeries, though expensive, as they provide quite a few benefits to each sufferers and surgeons.

According to surgeons, these procedures will inevitably change into extra common on account of their advantages, whereas additionally turning into much less expensive. After KIMS Hospital and Care Hospitals introduced the launch of totally automated robotic methods previously week, even the federal government hospital, MNJ Cancer Hospital, will begin providing robotic assisted surgeries in just a few months after procuring the required tools.

Senior oncologist at MNJ Hospital Dr C. Sairam believes such procedures are preferable for sure surgeries, reminiscent of these carried out for prostate most cancers. He stated the tools was expensive to acquire, and every surgical procedure requires the utilization of kit costing Rs 8 lakh as a result of it isn’t potential to reuse it.

Surgeons say such surgeries wouldn’t simply be used for complicated surgeries however might change into the norm in future. Dr Sai Laxman Anne, head of division (HoD, orthopaedics at Kondapur KIMS Hospitals, stated the concept was additionally to standardise routine surgeries.

“Robot assisted surgeries will assist surgeons function on as many individuals as potential whereas sustaining the identical accuracy, and eradicate human fatigue. For instance, whereas sawing via bone, the robotic will present uniform slicing, generate much less warmth, scale back mushy tissue trauma and probabilities of an infection and result in lesser post-operative ache,” he stated.


While the prohibitive value might be a difficulty proper now, it may get higher with extra gamers coming into the manufacturing area. “The process is sort of expensive, as there are solely a few companies on the planet which manufacture medical robots. Once they’re manufactured regionally, the speed might drop by 6-7 occasions,” stated Dr Kishore B. Reddy, HoD, orthopedics and orthopaedics oncology at Amor Hospital.

Chief of Medical Services, CARE Group, Dr Nikhil Mathur stated such surgeries had been being utilized in all main medical specialities reminiscent of neurology and gynaecology. “The expense relies upon from process to process and from robotic to robotic, however it’s positively slightly increased than laparoscopic surgeries. As know-how advances, the procedures will additional enhance,” Dr Mathur stated.
