Mangaluru: Yenepoya Specialty Hospital, Kodialbail, is proud to announce that it has achieved a new milestone by performing 125 successful robotic total knee replacement surgeries within its first year of introduction by the hospital.

Yenepoya Specialty Hospital introduced this highly advanced treatment procedure last year under the guidance of its Chief Joint Replacement Surgeon and renowned orthopaedic surgeon, Dr Deepak Rai, in furtherance of its objective of enabling patients to avail themselves of the best contemporary remedies for chronic ailments and enjoy a happier life.

We are delighted by the overwhelming public acceptance of this new treatment approach. To accommodate the growing demand, we have established a dedicated Robotic Surgery Operation Theatre (OT) complex and are in the process of expanding our robotic capabilities to other surgical specialties,” said Dr Muhammed Thahir, the medical director of the hospital, addressing a press conference today.

Total knee replacement, also known as knee arthroplasty, is a surgical intervention aimed at relieving pain and restoring mobility in cases where non-surgical options prove ineffective. It involves the insertion of an artificial prosthetic device to replicate the function of a natural knee joint, thereby enabling patients to enjoy a pain-free, active lifestyle.

Knee replacement is typically required for patients over the age of 65 who suffer from chronic knee problems. Robotic total knee replacement surgery represents the latest evolution in knee replacement procedures. By leveraging advanced technology,

it combines the skill of the surgeon with the precision of robotics to achieve optimal outcomes and long-term benefits for patients. Pre-surgical 3D mapping using CT scans allows for meticulous planning, guiding the precise removal of bone and ensuring accurate implant alignment during surgery.

The robotic arm executes this plan with precision, resulting in optimal joint positioning and functionality. Robotic total knee replacement surgery is less painful, enables quick recovery, and is long-lasting. As the surgery is highly personalised to the patient’s individual knee structure, it minimises the risk of individual variations.

The orthopaedic department of Yenepoya Specialty Hospital, headed by Dr Deepak Rai, has been working relentlessly to improve its expertise.

“Knee problems commonly afflict senior citizens and make their lives very difficult. Robotic total knee replacement surgery is the best way to achieve pain-free mobility, function normally, and lead a happy life,” says Dr Deepak Rai.

The overwhelming public acceptance and success of its robotic total knee replacement initiative has motivated Yenepoya Specialty Hospital, Kodialbail, to soon introduce robot-assisted technologies in other surgical specialties such as gynaecology, urology, GI surgery, cancer surgery, and cardiac surgery and aim for better outcomes in advanced patient care.

Yenepoya Specialty Hospital, Kodialbail: Established in 1995 under the visionary leadership of Dr Yenepoya Abdulla Kunhi, Yenepoya Specialty Hospital, Kodialbail, is a 234-bed tertiary care facility offering comprehensive services, including cardiology and cardiothoracic surgery, oncology and oncosurgery, urology and nephrology, neurology and neurosurgery, obstetrics and gynaecology, medical and surgical gastroenterology, orthopaedic surgery, neonatology, paediatrics and paediatric surgery, plastic and reconstructive surgery, spine surgery, ENT and head and neck surgery, and a dialysis unit.
