“Future of healthcare requires efficient, consistent and caring experience for every patient and family. Robotics-assisted technology is one of the most successful and sophisticated techniques in the world, and preserves natural structures, and smoothens movement of the knee. It gives the surgeon a three-dimensional view that helps to simplify the surgical process by giving accuracy to place the knee implants without affecting soft tissues, optimise alignment and balance, this improves natural frictions and life expectancy of the knee. The implants are natural and tend to support the muscles and ligaments for an extended period of time. This is a great partnership for both organizations to deliver enhanced quality care to patients through innovative tools, technologies, and techniques in a focused manner”, said Dr Narendra Vaidya, Director – SRV LHPL Centre of excellence in orthopedic robotics
The development of rheumatoid arthritis (RA)is one of the most common cause of physical disability in India. The deficiencies of vitamin D in the body directly or indirectly affects the knee. The age-related degenerative arthritis involves degeneration (wear and tear) of cartilage.
Sameer Pawar, CEO of SRV Hospitals said “The launch of SRV LHPL Centre of Excellence in Robotic Orthopedics is reflection of our commitment to magnify and stimulate access to highly specialized orthopedic services to the community by providing comprehensive orthopedic care under one roof.
