With the robotic surgeries getting to be the order of the day, healthcare specialists are of the view this new and most advanced trend of medical treatment will be additionally consolidated with an ever-increasing number of hospitals in the nation selecting it in the near future.
Especially, some of the super specialty hospitals in Hyderabad have been in the forefront in adopting the new trend of robotic surgeries.
As per Dr. Bhaskar Rao, overseeing chief of Krishna Institute of Medical Sciences (KIMS), “Robotics in medicine is fast catching up to speed as it offers best, reliable, infection free and fast recovery options. In fact, the use of medicinal robots will expand the quality of medical treatment. Usage of telepresence in the medical operations has eliminated the barriers of distance, because of which professional expertise is promptly available. Utilization of robotics in the medical field and telepresence minimize individual oversight and brings particular information to inaccessible regions without the need of physical travel.”
As per specialists, however, the robotic surgeries started on a little note in the nation, this trend is going assume control over the healthcare industry to the following level in the year 2018. With the introduction of robotics in the medical field, an ever-increasing number of hospitals are taking a gander at installing most advanced robotic surgery equipment, as well as increasingly inducting trained robotic surgeons with expertise.
“Installing robotics is certainly a major cost-cutting for the hospitals. It won’t only help in successfully conducting the surgery but most importantly it will be error free and enables the patient to recover faster,” observed a Senior Robotic Surgeon from Care Hospital.
In the year 2017, an expected 50 surgical robots are installed and employed around 300 very much trained robotic surgeons crosswise over different hospitals in the country. In any case, this trend is estimated to go up by 200 surgical robots and 20000 automated surgeons in the following two years by 2020.
In India, the first robotic surgery was led in the year 2013 and from that point then robotic surgeries were led in urology, gynecology, cancer, thoracic and colorectal cancers.
The year 2017 had seen a major boost in robotic medical treatment as this technology has been generally accepted over the medical realm. Specialists are currently working with specialty regions like renal transplants and abdominal tumors.
“There is an immense extent of utilization of robotics in pediatric and general surgeries; however the major challenge faced by the hospitals is the availability of all around trained robotic specialists. It can be overwhelmed via training an ever-increasing number of doctors as robotic surgeons,” observed another senior doctor from Apollo.
