Robotic technology is continually progressing. Robots are playing an essential role in modern medicine, from training the next generation medical professionals to treating the patients with equipped instruments. Medical professionals are performing operations with miniaturized surgical instruments, instead of large incisions. This not only saving costs but also reduces hospital stays and reduces pain. Nowadays, robotic devices are being used to replace the complex surgical operations, missing limbs and effectively for minimal invasive surgery. This system improves the accuracy of procedures and reduces the complication rates. It also reduces the stress levels of the doctor.
It’s been nearly 30 years, since the first robotic surgical instrument appeared in operation room. There has been more progress by implementing robotic technologies with surgical instrumentation.
For the first time in India, this cutting-edge technology was conducted in 2008 at All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS). Later, many other major hospitals like Manipal, Apollo, Fortis, and Medanta Medicity have followed this new trend. The Kokilaben Hospital has performed 200 robotic surgeries within 12 months of robotic technology launch in India. The Medanta Vattikuti institute of Robotic Surgeries, Gurgaon, is providing training programs on robotic technology and also performing multispecialty robotic surgeries under one roof. Ultimately, robotic technology has becoming more integrated into the medical world and revolutionizing surgeries.
Robotic technology in India has gained popularity in a very few years. India is one such country which performed robotic surgery on its own. Without any doubt, Robotic technology will develop in our country. It is necessary to educate and provide training for safe implementation of robotic technology to experience the robotics in healthcare to the next level in India. The cost factor is also need to be considered. Any technology which supports a healthcare practitioner will be beneficial for the patient.
Moreover, this technology has marked the beginning of a revolution in medical system
