Bangalore, November 25, 2020: Apollo Hospitals, Bangalore, has launched its first-of-a-kind knee replacement programme, offering specialized partial and total knee replacement care with robotic technology.
The Robotic system has an advanced computed program that relays precise information about the knee with 3D mapping. The use of next generation robotics with smaller incision will result in less pain and lesser blood loss. Precision in bone cutting and better position of implant with alignment gives a near normal knee motion for both total and partial knee replacement.
The programme which comes as a package designed for the new normal due to the COVID pandemic, comprises of home diagnostic tests / assessments, Apollo 24*7 app consultations, and post-surgical home care made available for the patients.
Says Dr. Pratap C Reddy, Chairman, Apollo Hospitals Group: “Osteoarthritis is a rising health concern in India, with a prevalence rate between 22 – 39%. To overcome pain and limitations in mobility of such patients, Joint Replacement is the solution. The outcome of surgeries can be improved by leveraging technology. Today, robotic technology has come a long way, helping perform some of the most complicated surgeries with precision, and Apollo Hospitals has always been at the forefront of using technology in healthcare”.
Adds Dr. Sangita Reddy, Joint Managing Director, Apollo Hospitals Group: “Our vision has always been to bring the most advanced medical technology to India to benefit our patients. We are continuing on this path with the launch of the knee replacement program, assisted by robotic technology. At Apollo Hospitals, the patient is at the center of all our efforts in providing accessible and affordable world-class treatment, and the introduction of the NAVIO surgical system is in furtherance of this objective”.
