Robotic surgery facility in Safdarjung Hospital dedicated to nation

Robotic surgery facility in Safdarjung Hospital dedicated to nation

New Delhi, Nov 2 (UNI) The robotic surgery facility in the Safdarjung Hospital here was dedicated to the nation by Union Health and Family Welfare Minister Dr Harsh Vardhan on Saturday.

Dr Vardhan said this was in line with Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s vision of making World class infrastructure and World class expertise accessible to poor Indian population.

Safdarjang Hospital is one of the biggest tertiary care referral centre of India, under Ministry of Health and Family Welfare catering to all poor patients of uro-oncological cancers like prostate, kidney, bladder cancers and kidney failures, from different parts of the country.

It is also the first Central Government hospital in India to start this latest Robot Surgery facility for all poor patients for free. Robotic surgery has the advantage of providing minimally invasive surgery, reducing significantly the morbidity and mortality of critically ill, cancer and kidney failure patients.

The Robotic system provides seven degrees of freedom, 3-D vision, 10 times magnification and better dissection with more precision. The operating time also decreases resulting in improvement in turnover of patients and decrease in waiting list of patients for surgery significantly.
