Ludhiana, February 8
The Fortis Hospital conducted its first robotics-assisted Joint Replacement Surgery and has launched Robotic Joint Replacement facility in the region.
Dr Sanjeev Mahajan, Orthopaedic Surgeon, and Director of Orthopaedics at Fortis Hospital, performed the first successful robotics joint replacement surgery in Ludhiana today, on a 62- year old patient, with severe osteoarthritis-induced knee pain using NAVIO Robotics Surgical System, the latest robotic intervention in joint replacement.
Dr Sanjeev Mahajan explained, “Robotic surgery integrates advanced computer technology with the experience of the skilled surgeons. The surgeon uses intuitive robotics assisted controls and intelligence to enable precision and accuracy at a minute level, which leads to highly desirable results in the patient after the surgery. NAVIO, which is a state-of-the-art technology, enables the surgeon to replace only the damaged part of the knee to absolute perfection, saving all the other normal structures of the joint. Patients can now receive treatment in a manner similar to day-care surgeries.”
Further, he added that the robotics-assisted system eliminates the possibilities of human error and ensures perfect alignment, leading to the longevity of the joint implant. Robotics-assisted joint replacement surgery is extremely satisfying for the patients since it preserves all the natural structures of the joint and offers them a huge advantage of immediate recovery, early discharge and minimal blood loss. It is equally beneficial for the young people who intend to return to their active lifestyle soon.
