Know It All In 30 Seconds
Modern technology is advancing in leaps and bounds and our nation is in full swing with this technological boom. This is once again proved by the specialists of the Centre-run Safdarjung hospital, who’ve introduced the cutting-edge infrastructure of robotic surgery for the first time in the capital.
This surgical procedure has been started off in the Urology and Renal Transplant dept. , and will be soon applied to kidney transplantation and gyno surgeries too. As informed by the doctors, 25 surgeries have already been done in the hospital using this robotics facility.
Robotic surgery leverages the power of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning to perform operations faster and with more accuracy. This will highly aid in reducing the mortality rate of cancer and kidney failure patients. The advanced robotic system will provide 3-dimensional vision, 10 times better magnification, refined precision and 7 degrees of freedom. These operations usually cost ₹5-6 lakhs in private hospitals, but they will be provided free of the cost out here for the population below the poverty line.
Hats off to the hospice surgeons for taking up this stupendous step to make world-class infrastructure easily accessible to the city peeps, including the poor.
