Fortis Bone and Joint Institute, Gurugram conducts 1st robotic joint replacement surgery in North India

The surgery was executed using the NAVIO PFS surgical system, which is the latest robotic intervention in the field of joint replacement

Orthopedic surgeons led by Orthopedic surgeon and Padmashree recipient, Dr Ashok Rajgopal at the Fortis Bone and Joint Institute, Gurugram conducted the first successful robot aided joint replacement surgery on a 61-year-old patient, who had been suffering from severe left knee pain for many years.

The surgery was executed using the NAVIO PFS surgical system, which is the latest robotic intervention in the field of joint replacement. NAVIO enables the surgeon to fix only the damaged part of the knee to absolute perfection, saving all the other normal structures of the joint.

Dr Ashok Rajgopal, Chairman, Fortis Bone & Joint Institute said, "Robot-assisted joint replacement surgery offers the patient a huge advantage of immediate recovery, same or next day discharge and minimal blood loss. It is extremely satisfying for the patients since it preserves all the natural structures of the joint. It is equally beneficial for the young people who intend to return to their active lifestyle sooner and elderly people who are at risk of undergoing a knee replacement."

Dr Simmardeep Singh Gill, Zonal Director, Fortis Memorial Research Institute said, "With advanced robotics entering the field of orthopedics, patients can now receive treatment in a manner similar to day-care surgeries. Fortis has always been at the helm of technology and a center of excellence in Orthopedics for patients from all across the world, which has always been a vision for us. With robot assisted joint replacement, we are driving this leadership ahead and ensuring that we are at par with the world because this technology has been launched in India immediately after the US and we are only the second country in the world to adopt it successfully!"
