CHENNAI, Tamil Nadu: Doctors at SIMS Hospital last week performed two back-to-back successful Robotic total knee replacement surgeries, for the first time in Tamil Nadu on 65 years old patients, both with severe knee pain since over 5 years. These surgeries were done using the NAVIO PFS Robotic surgical system, the latest advanced generation Robotic intervention in joint replacement (developed in the USA) and to the delight of the families, enabled these patients to walk without significant pain within 4 hours of the surgery itself.
The surgery was performed successfully by the team lead by Dr. Vijay C. Bose, Joint Director & Senior Consultant, Institute of Orthopedics SIMS Hospital, Dr. Pichai Suryanarayanan, Sr.V.P, Medical, Joint Director & Senior Consultant, and Institute of Orthopedics SIMS Hospital. Dr. Ashok Kumar P.S., Senior Consultant, Department of Advanced Joint Replacement Surgery at SIMS Hospital.

Padma Shri Kapil Dev, Captain of World Cup winning team, presided over the occasion of formal launch as Chief Guest. Veteran film actor Mrs. Jyotika Suriya, graced the occasion as Guest of Honor.
Robotic joint replacement surgery has many definitive benefits over traditional joint replacement surgery: one being, a bone conserving technology as it helps in preserving natural anatomy. It enables the surgeon to operate with enhanced precision even during the most complex procedures and difficult cases. Enhanced precision and lesser bone removal lead to less blood loss, painless, faster and better post-operative outcomes for the patient.

Robotic assisted joint replacement is at a much higher level with regards to many parameters than traditional joint replacement surgery, says Dr. Vijay C. Bose, Joint Director & Senior Consultant, Institute of Orthopedics SIMS Hospital.

“The NAVIO Robotic system reduces the possibilities of human error and ensures perfect alignment, leading to the longevity of the joint implant. Though this is a very high-end technology in our hospital, we have chosen to not make it expensive – so that more patients will be able to benefit from this, confirms Dr. Ashok Kumar P.S., Senior Consultant, Department of Advanced Joint Replacement Surgery at SIMS Hospital.
The two patients and their families are extremely happy with the outcomes from such world-class cutting-edge technology, available to them in Tamil Nadu itself. They were both discharged to get back home within 2-3 days of the joint replacement surgery and are now undergoing physical rehabilitation to return to an active lifestyle soon. PRNewsWire
