June-03-2023, Apollo Hospitals, Ahmedabad, a pioneer in healthcare innovation, has launched the Da Vinci Xi Robotic Surgical System, a groundbreaking advancement in surgical procedures that promises enhanced precision and superior patient care. The state-of-the-art technology is a major milestone and will revolutionise surgical healthcare and open up new possibilities for both patients and surgeons.
The Da Vinci Xi Robotic Surgical system was launched in the presence of Gujarat Health Minister, Rushikesh Patel on Friday. Also present on the occasion, were Neeraj Lal (Unit head & COO, Gujarat Region), Dr Abhijat Sheth (Director, Medical Services), and others. In his address, the Hon’ble Minister lauded Apollo Hospitals for introducing the cutting-edge robotic surgical system and other medical technologies to Ahmedabad.
“The applications of Artificial Intelligence and other emerging technologies are immense. The Gujarat government is implementing AI for more effective governance. It is great to see Apollo Hospitals taking the lead and harnessing the power of technology to deliver better healthcare services. I wish them the very best,” Minister Rushikesh Patel said.
Delivering the welcome speech, Mr Neeraj Lal, COO and unit head, Gujarat Region, said, “We at Apollo Hospitals are committed to driving innovation and embracing cutting-edge technologies to redefine precision, patient care, and the future of healthcare in India. The introduction of Da Vinci Xi Robotic Surgical system is a step in that direction and will allow complex surgical procedures to be performed with greater accuracy.”
The Da Vinci Xi Robotic system will allow Apollo Hospitals to elevate clinical outcomes for patients in need of complex surgeries. It is designed to be used in complex procedures related to Oncology, Urology, Colorectal, General Surgery, Gynaecology, and Gastro-Intestinal surgeries. It offers exceptional accuracy, efficiency and safety. Robotic procedures are a better alternative to open and laparoscopic surgeries offering specific advantages in technically challenging situations.
One of the clear advantages of robotic surgery is improved precision. Surgical procedures can be performed with greater accuracy, leading to better outcomes for patients. Moreover, robotic surgery allows for minimally invasive incisions, resulting in reduced scarring and a shorter recovery time.
Compared with traditional surgical methods, robotic surgery is less invasive and makes it possible to navigate even the smallest spaces within the patient’s body, reducing pain and discomfort in patients post-surgery. A robotic procedure also lowers the risk of complications such as infections and scarring.
Moreover, the integration of robotics in surgery also offers improved visualisation. The use of high-definition cameras and a 3D view of the surgical site enable surgeons to navigate and operate in areas that are hard to access with conventional surgery.
In the last two years, the Apollo Group has witnessed an increase of over 400 per cent in the number of robotic-assisted procedures performed across its hospitals in India. With superior clinical precision, the use of robotics in surgeries has been instrumental in reducing the overall hospital stay of patients, lower blood loss, and faster recovery in most cases, besides other benefits.
Besides surgery, the use of robotics in other areas of healthcare, including patient care, has also grown consistently. Robotic systems are being used to improve patient rehabilitation, support physical therapy and collect and monitor patient data.
The implementation of robotics has also made significant strides in the areas of hygiene and sanitation. Hospitals are utilising robots for sterilisation, effectively curbing the spread of infections and ensuring a safer environment for patients and healthcare providers. The adoption of robotics in healthcare in India is still in the nascent stages, but ongoing technological advancements promise a future where robotic surgery becomes increasingly commonplace.
