GUWAHATI, Sept 12: Anup Institute of Orthopaedics & Rehabilitation, Patna has become the first hospital in North and East India to offer robot-assisted total knee and hip replacements with World Renowned Medical Equipment Maker Stryker’s Mako Robotic system.
The hospital recently made history by performing 10 successful surgeries with this advanced technology and discharged all patients pain-free within 72 hours.
Mako Robotic system is the first and only robotic technology that ensures 100% accuracy in joint replacement surgeries, reducing pain and recovery time. “With the launch of Mako Robotic-arm in Bihar, Anup Institute is leading the transformation of orthopaedic industry in North and East India,” said Dr Ashish Singh, Orthopaedic and Robotic Joint Replacement surgeon at Anup Institute. “By adding this breakthrough technology to our existing orthopaedic service line, we wish to make world-class care accessible at no extra cost to all patients from India & abroad” he added.
With this revolutionary technology, surgeons at Anup Institute will be performing 100% precision-led surgeries. Dr Ashish Singh has successfully completed his Robotic Joint Replacement Training Program from the USA. He is now certified to use this innovative technology for total hip, total knee and partial knee replacements. Studies have proven that hip and knee replacements done by a robotic arm are two to three times more accurate than manual procedures.
Orthopaedic surgeons at AIOR will now be using the Mako system to modify the surgical plan intra-operatively and make easier bone resections. It will help target only the damaged part of the knee, sparing the healthy bones and ligaments.
