ROBOTIC SURGERY

While technology has been leaving its footprints on every turf, healthcare is one of the most positively affected areas. New advancements in technology have helped in shaping the healthcare industry in the right way. Lokmanya Group of hospitals under the leadership of Dr Narendra Vaidya is the first hospital in India and one of the first hospitals outside USA to offer the innovative Robotic Assisted Surgery System for knee replacement procedures. This latest advancement in surgery is transforming the way joint replacement procedures are performed. Use of Robotic technology has resulted in shorter hospitalizations as well as more predictable, balanced, and aligned joint replacements. This process allows rapid relief of pain, and return to an active lifestyle with a shorter recovery for most patients.

The mission of Dr Narendra Vaidya is to offer the most advanced and comprehensive treatment for all the patients with Joint problems to bring them back to their normal, pain-free, active life.

As per Dr Narendra Vaidya, “Robotic Assisted Joint Replacement Technology is changing the way Joint Replacement Surgeries are being done, as It presents an excellent combination of Man and Technology where surgeon’s skills with high level of precision and accuracy of the Robotic system is helping to achieve exact mapping, better planning and perfect implant selection along with preserving of natural structures like healthy bone, associated muscles and Ligaments and therefore patient recovery time is shorter and length of stay is also less, therefore all in all it is a win win situation for everyone. Using a virtual 3D model, the Robotic Assisted Surgical System allows surgeons to personalize each patient’s surgical plan pre-operatively, so there is a clear plan for how the surgeon will resurface the damaged and diseased bone and  position the implant before beginning procedure” adds Dr. Vaidya  “During surgery, the surgeon can validate that plan and make any necessary adjustments, while the robotic-arm then allows the surgeon to execute that plan with a high level of accuracy and predictability. The combination of these features of the system has the potential to lead to better outcomes and higher patient satisfaction.”

What is Robotic-Arm Assisted Surgery Technology?

It combines the highly developed technology of an interactive 3-D visualization system and the robotic arm, providing your surgeon with the consistent pinpoint accuracy reducing the likelihood of Joint dislocation. The surgical precision of the robotic assisted surgical system enhances mobility and implant longevity.

What is the Robotic-Arm Assisted Surgery Process?

A robotic-arm assisted technology provides you with a personalized surgical plan based on your unique anatomy. First, a 3D model of your joint will be used to pre-plan your surgery based on your unique anatomy.

A robotic-arm assisted technology provides you with a personalized surgical plan based on your unique anatomy. First, a 3D model of your joint will be used to pre-plan your surgery based on your unique anatomy. In the operating room, your surgeon follows your personalized surgical plan while preparing the bone for the implant. The surgeon guides the robotic arm to remove diseased bone and cartilage within the pre-defined area, and the Robotic Assisted Surgical System helps the surgeon stay within the planned boundaries that were defined when the personalized pre-operative plan was created. However, the surgeon can alter the plan during surgery as necessary based on real-time information and situation.

It’s important to understand that the surgery is performed by an orthopedic surgeon, who guides the robotic-arm during the surgery to position the implant in the knee joint. The robotic-arm does not perform surgery, make decisions on its own, or move without the surgeon guiding the robotic-arm.

After surgery, your surgeon, nurses and physical therapists will set goals with you to get you back on the move. They will closely monitor your condition and progress. Your surgeon will review a post-operative x-ray of your new implant with you on follow up visits.

With the use of technology the requirement of prolonged rest period after surgery, rigorous physiotherapy has been eliminated and patient is allowed to walk right from the next day of surgery and dependency for his activities on family members is eliminated which has increased the acceptance of this treatment has tremendously increased with high satisfaction index.

Benefits of Robotic-Arm Assisted Partial Knee Replacement Surgery

  • Small incision
  • Minimally invasive procedure creating less scarring
  • Less post-operative pain
  • Less soft tissue damage than traditional joint replacements
  • More “natural feeling” in the joint following surgery as the diseased bone is only resurfaced and replaced with proper fitting implant keeping the maximum healthy bone in place and associated soft tissues muscles and ligaments are all preserved which Improves mobility and pain relief, Also there is very small difference (in millimeters) between the implant location and the original location of your own bone
  • Less implant wear and loosening due to lessened risk of implant and bone rubbing together
  • More rapid recovery with a short hospital stay.
  • Requires minimal hospitalization and recuperations
  • More rapid recovery means a faster return to daily activities.
  • Protection from radiation exposure as requirement of CT scan is eliminated making it more safe for the patient
  • Surgeon’s comfort level also increases as measurements are more precise and operative time also gets reduced. The process is controlled by the surgeon but not dependent on him.

Robotic assisted surgery is a new approach to joint replacement that offers the potential for a higher level of patient-specific implant alignment and positioning, it helps the surgeon execute the procedure with a high degree of accuracy. Robotic joint replacement is one of the biggest innovations in joint replacement. Robotics have taken surgery from being an operation done by the human hand, subject to human error, to being a much more precise procedure done with the aid of computerized three dimensional planning and robotic precision. It is a complete game-changer, in terms of accuracy and enhanced speed of recovery. With robotics, we can be 100% accurate and it’s a perfect combination of surgeon’s skill and precision of system.
