Joint replacement packages ( including implant) starting from Rs 2 lakhs
Sahyadri Hospitals inaugurated an advanced robotic joint replacement surgery unit. The state-of-the-art facility of Sahyadri Hospitals Kothrud was inaugurated at the hands of former cricketer Zaheer Khan in presence of Former Mayor Pune, Murlidhar Mohol.
Speaking on the occasion, Dr Abhijit Agashe, Robotic Joint Replacement Surgeon, Sahyadri Hospitals said, “Wear and tear in the joints is a common problem with age. Robotic systems have reduced human intervention and increased accuracy in the procedure, resulting in better outcomes and significant improvement in the quality of life of patients.”
He revealed that accuracy is achieved through many factors. Artificial intelligence, automation, reduced human intervention in the system and accurate assessment of the overall position due to pre-operative 3D imaging and surgical preparation can result in better accuracy in actual surgical procedures. All this can lead to minimal bleeding, shorter hospital stays and faster recovery.
Dr Agashe added, “The newly introduced robotic joint replacement system at Sahyadri Hospitals is the most advanced in technology and is a fully automatic robotic unit. With such an advanced system, procedures can be performed accurately even in complex and challenging conditions.”
Amruta Sane, Unit Head at Sahyadri Hospitals Kothrud said, “The most advanced technology is now made available at a reasonable cost, with joint replacement packages ( including implant) starting from Rs 2 lakhs. This new technology will certainly add quality to life after joint replacement.”
