Pristyn Care introduces robotic knee replacement in Pune; performs surgeries with CUVIS robotic system


PUNE: Pristyn Care, India’s largest secondary care provider, has announced its entry into fully automatic robotic-assisted total knee replacement surgeries in Pune. Pristyn Care surgeons will leverage the CUVIS Joint Robotic System developed by South Korean giant Meril to perform some of the most highly complex procedures. The cutting-edge system uses AI, computer-assisted programs, and robots to assist surgeons in performing knee replacement surgeries with unparalleled precision and control. Pristyn Care has been adopting the latest medical technology to provide the best surgical care to the patients.

The CUVIS Joint Robotic system has been installed at Deccan Hardikar multi-specialty hospital in Pune. The system offers advanced 3D visualization and an intuitive control system, allowing Pristyn Care surgeons to achieve unprecedented accuracy and control. As a result, the system enables greater surgical outcomes, ensuring the best implant position with improved longevity, durability, and minimal human errors. Moreover, it also helps the patient’s faster recovery and early discharge from the hospital.

According to WHO, nearly 18 percent of women and 9.6 percent of men over 60 years suffer from Osteoarthritis worldwide. In India, Osteoarthritis is the second most common rheumatologic problem and affects more than 180 million people in India. With the prevalence of arthritis in India increasing at a higher pace, a breakthrough introduction of the CUVIS robotic system for knee replacement by Pristyn Care will ensure that surgical procedure is performed with a new degree of precision, enhancing patient outcomes.

Commenting on the announcement, Dr. Vaibhav Kapooor, Co-founder at Pristyn Care, said, “Joint pain due to rheumatoid arthritis and Osteoarthritis causes knee pain that affects people of all age groups. Many of our patients have complained of joint pain for years before deciding on surgery. In a highly complex procedure such as total knee replacement, the CUVIS robot helps surgeons perform the surgery without the scope of manual or miscalculated error and help patients get the best outcomes. Pristyn Care is poised to continue leading the efforts in the most advanced surgeries and setting new standards of excellence and innovation in healthcare.”

Dr. Saurabh V Giri, MBBS, MS, Orthopedic Surgeon at Pristyn Care, said, “Robotic-assisted technology has revolutionized the field of orthopedics. With over 50K arthroplasty surgeries happening in Maharashtra every year, CUVIS comes as a game changer for surgeons. It creates a 3-D image of the patient’s knee, enabling implant placement with high accuracy. It also provides real-time feedback ensuring each implant is placed correctly. Many studies indicate that patients undergoing robotic-assisted vs traditional knee replacement experience lesser pain and a faster recovery. “

In addition, India is the preferred country for medical value travelers as the country possesses the expertise to diagnose and treat a full range of diseases. Moreover, in most cases, the treatments offered are cost-effective. For example, in India, robotic-assisted knee surgery is available at a fraction of what the exact procedures could cost in Western countries. Therefore, Pristyn Care, with its advanced robotic surgery techniques, eyes the potential to tap into medical tourism, which is expected to grow to 13 billion dollars by 2026.
