Kapil Dev Unveils Advanced Robotic technology for Orthopedics Treatment at Manipal Hospital, Kharadi Inbox
  • Nearly 30% of the Indian population is suffering from knee-related issues
  • With a success rate of 98%, the robotic-assisted surgeries result in longer-lasting joint replacements
  • With advanced robotic technology, patients can now avail of partial knee replacement surgeries over traditional surgeries

PUNE: Manipal Hospital, Kharadi welcomes the legendary Indian cricket team captain, fitness enthusiast, and recipient of Padma Bhushan Shri Kapil Dev, today to introduce cutting-edge robotic technology for advanced orthopedic surgeries. This technology aims to improve knee replacement and joint treatment with robotic-assisted surgeries in Pune and nearby cities.

Over the last five years, there has been a significant increase in the number of joint replacement surgeries in India. Surgeons across the country have witnessed more than 2.5 lakh patients undergo knee replacement surgeries every year, and the number has increased manifold in recent years. In a few years, Manipal Hospital Kharadi has observed an increase in knee replacement surgeries. With newer and more advanced technology in India, people with total knee replacement can start to walk as early as six hours after the surgery. The evolution in orthopedic treatment and the introduction of robotic-assisted orthopedic surgeries have minimized the risks associated with knee replacement. Robotic-assisted surgeries are advanced medical procedures performed using robotic devices guided by a surgeon. These procedures help surgeons perform complex surgeries with precision instruments and advanced systems, less bleeding reduced recovery time.

Unveiling the advanced robotic technology, veteran Indian cricketer Kapil Dev said, “I would like to congratulate Manipal Hospital Kharadi for introducing the new and advanced robotic technology for joint replacement. In cricket, we constantly strive to improve our equipment and techniques for better performance. Similarly, the advancement in healthcare, one of which is robotic-assisted surgery, has improved the treatment options for people suffering from orthopedic problems. As a sportsman, I understand the impact of joint injuries and the importance of faster recovery and this new robotic technology at Manipal Hospital is a game-changer in orthopedic treatment options available in the city. It offers faster recovery, less pain, and a quicker return to an active lifestyle.
