SRINAGAR: Recently mankind has seen revolutionary changes in medical field especially in the field of joint replacement. After the grand success of navigation technology, the future of joint replacement – robotic assisted surgery has been invented and it has totally changed the concept of treatment of joints. There are so many benefits of robotic assisted knee surgery which will make it the most preferred treatment technology all over the world. There is no bone loss in this technology as the bone is grinded and knee replacement is done with very less blood loss, quick recovery and quick rehabilitation. The patient has to stay for lesser days in the hospital, so it also saves the precious time and money of the patients. Accuracy is 100 percent in robotic assisted surgery. There are only few countries which are using this technology and India is among these privileged countries. Keeping its legacy of introducing latest treatment technologies for its patients, Amandeep Group of Hospitals is the first healthcare group in the north region to introduce robotic assisted knee surgery. We have already successfully treated many patients with robotic surgery and proved it as a big success as the patients are very happy. Patients are feeling better, faster. The treatment with robotic knee replacement will have more movements of their joints which can be helpful in performing religious activities in a better way. These views were expressed by Dr. Avtar Singh while addressing the CME of doctors of Kashmir at Srinagar. At the same time Dr. Avtar Singh informed the delegates that Amandeep Hospital has launched its OPD services at Srinagar in association with Kidney Hospital, Sonawar and specialists of Amandeep Group will regularly check the patients of Kashmir region in Srinagar. This is definitely going to benefit the people of the valley because now they can get their checkup done at their doorsteps and similarly, after surgery, follow-ups can be done at Srinagar. This will save time and money of the people. Amandeep Group in a statement said it is committed to provide latest world class treatment facilities to the people of the region at their doorsteps. Prof. Dr. Munir Khan of Kidney Hospital organized this special CME for the doctors of the valley.
