56 Year Old Walks Again After First Robotic Knee Replacement At Yatharth Hospital
Yatharth Hospitals recently installed Mako Orthopedic Robot at its Noida Extension branch. The launch was an important milestone for the hospital in its endeavour to bring the most advanced technology for patients suffering from knee and hip joint disorders.
Marking a significant advancement in orthopaedic care, doctors at Yatharth Hospital, Noida Extension have successfully performed robotic knee replacement surgery on a 56-year old female patient. This first-of-its-kind procedure in Noida Extension demonstrates the hospital’s commitment to leveraging cutting-edge medical technologies to deliver exceptional clinical outcomes.
Ms. Saroj suffered from severe osteoarthritis in both knees, particularly a concerning varus deformity in her left knee, significantly impacting her mobility and daily life. To address these challenges, the orthopaedic team at Yatharth Hospital, Noida Extension, led by Dr. Amit Nath Misra, Director of Orthopaedics & Joint Replacement, opted for a revolutionary approach - Robotic Knee Replacement. The expert medical team performed the procedure with sophisticated MAKO Orthopaedic Robot to optimize surgical precision. This system enabled the creation of a 3D pre-operative model of the patient’s joint anatomy, allowing accurate implant positioning and alignment.
The minimally invasive nature of the robotic surgery translated to reduced blood loss, minimal pain, and a significantly faster recovery. Ms. Saroj, to everyone's delight, was able to walk just one day after her surgery, a testament to the effectiveness of this transformative approach.
Mr. Yatharth Tyagi, Director of Yatharth Group of Hospitals, expressed his enthusiasm about this achievement, stating, “We are extremely proud to be pioneering advanced robotic knee replacement surgery here at Yatharth Hospitals. The successful completion of this landmark procedure demonstrates our commitment to leveraging the latest medical technologies to truly make a positive difference in patients' lives. As we continue introducing robotics across other specialties, I’m confident Yatharth Hospitals will set new benchmarks in patient care and clinical excellence.”
Dr. Amit Nath Misra, Director of Orthopaedics & Joint Replacement, shared his insights & commented, "I am thrilled we have brought advanced robotic knee replacement surgery to our orthopedics program here at Yatharth Hospital. The immense precision and accuracy of systems like the MAKO Orthopaedic Robot are invaluable for addressing complex cases with greater safety and superior outcomes. Ms. Saroj's surgery exemplified these benefits - with the robotics, we could surgically address the severe osteoarthritis and concerning varus deformity she faced.”
