     Thiruvananthapuram: A state-of-the-art robotic surgery unit has been installed at KIMSHEALTH Trivandrum for knee replacement surgery. Dr. Shashi Tharoor, MP, unveiled the Robotic Surgery Unit and the KIMSHEALTH Center for Robotic Joint Replacement.

    “Robotic surgery technology, which brings unparalleled precision and safety to surgical procedures, marks a major milestone in healthcare,” stated Dr. Shashi Tharoor. He congratulated KIMSHEALTH for its efforts in providing advanced treatment to the common man.

    Dr. M.I Sahadulla, Chairman, and Managing Director, KIMSHEALTH in his presidential address, said that the Center for Robotic Joint Replacement has been introduced at a point where the use of technology in healthcare is most needed.

    Bone structure of each patient is unique. This robotic system allows the doctor to analyze the three-dimensional CT images of the patient’s bones before surgery and plan the surgery more precisely according to the patient’s condition. Additionally, the risk of infection in robotic surgery is significantly low as it employs relatively fewer instruments than conventional surgery.

    “With the assistance of this fully robotic technology, patients can quickly return to normal life,” remarked Dr. Muhammed Nazeer, Senior Consultant, and Group Coordinator, Department of Orthopedics & Trauma. KIMSHEALTH  has also a team with  expertise in robotics to ensure all safety measures required during surgery. Eight surgeries have been successfully completed so far, he added.

    Dr. G. Vijayaraghavan, Vice Chairman, KIMSHEALTH, and S.N. Raghuchandran Nair, President, Trivandrum Chamber of Commerce, extended their greetings at the event. Dr. Muhammed Nazeer delivered the welcome address, and EM Najeeb, Executive Director, extended the vote of thanks.
