Lucknow। Apollomedics Hospital Lucknow announced the launch of its Artificial Intelligence powered Robotic Knee replacement surgery services. It is a world-class next-gen technology which is being brought first time in the region by Apollomedics Lucknow which will transform the future of Knee replacement Surgery.
Dr. Mayank Somani, MD & CEO of Apollomedics Hospital Lucknow, told the media, "Our hospital is committed to provide our patients with the latest and most advanced medical technologies. Apollomedics Hospital Lucknow is proud to be the first hospital in the region to offer this advanced technology. The Artificial Intelligence Powered Robotic Knee Replacement uses world-class next-gen technology, which elevates the precision and accuracy to a whole new level. This cutting-edge technology is used only at few selected centers in India & globally to perform Knee replacement surgeries including countries like US and UK. If we talk about the cost difference between Conventional & Robotic Surgery, in countries like US or UK a patient has to pay 26% higher for a Robotic Knee Surgery (approx. $50000 in US while approx. £12100 in UK). It is 20 times more of what a patient has to pay while undergoing same surgery in India. Our center offers this advanced technology at a very affordable rate. The AI-powered robotic knee replacement surgery is a testament to our commitment to innovation and excellence in patient care. We are confident that this technology will revolutionize the way knee replacement surgeries are performed in Uttar Pradesh.
The AI Guided Robotic Orthopedic Surgery Services will be led by Dr Sanjai K Srivastava, Chairman of Orthopedics and Joint Replacement at Apollomedics Hospitals. Dr Sanjai has an experience of over 3 decades with 20000+ orthopedic surgeries.
Addressing the media, Dr Sanjai told "We are excited to offer this advanced technology to our patients. The Artificial Intelligence powered robotic knee replacement surgery is a game-changer, and we are proud to be at the forefront of this innovation. The AI-powered robotic knee replacement surgery is a minimally invasive procedure that uses a robotic arm to assist the surgeon in performing the surgery giving submillimeter accuracy incisions. This is way more advanced technique as compared to traditional Knee Replacement surgery. In a Conventional Knee Replacement the outcome depends solely on surgeon’s skills and results in 80% to 85% accuracy of surgeon’s planning. With the help of Robotic Surgery, the rate of accuracy achieved increases to 95% to 99% resulting into a superior post-surgery outcome. The Robotic technology introduces personalized planning & predictive results by a 3D model of the post-surgery knee outcome beforehand which gives patients much-needed peace of mind. This also ensures that the surgery is tailored to the patient's unique anatomy allowing for greater precision and accuracy during the procedure, resulting in a faster recovery and superior outcomes. This unique blend of surgeon’s skills & precision of AI results in a safer surgery, Pinpoint accuracy, faster recovery, early discharge and a more personalized experience which helps patient resume normal life in lesser time"
