The da Vinci Surgical System is a robotic surgical system invented by the American company Intuitive Surgical. It was approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) in 2000. da Vinci Surgical system uses a robotic surgical system that provides your surgeon with better vision, precision, and control during the surgery.
Today, complex conditions such as cancer, uterine prolapse, fibroids can be treated easily with da Vinci surgical system and even heart disease can be treated minimally.da Vinci Surgical System is used for:
Consult with our doctors to know if da Vinci Surgery is right for you.
Knee replacement, also known as knee arthroplasty, is a surgical procedure to replace the weight-bearing surfaces of the knee joint to relieve pain and disability. It is most commonly performed for osteoarthritis, and also for other knee diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis and psoriatic arthritis.
The knee is the largest joint in the body and having healthy knees is required to perform most everyday activities. The knee is generally divided into three compartments: Medial (the inside part of the knee), lateral (the outside), and patellofemoral (the joint between the kneecap and the thighbone).Causes for knee replacement:
Most patients with arthritis severe enough to consider knee replacement have significant wear in two or more of the above compartments and are best treated with total knee replacement.
High-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) uses high-frequency ultrasound energy to heat and destroy cancer cells in the prostate. A beam of ultrasound energy travels into the prostate from a probe put into the back passage (rectum).Who can have HIFU?
Hormone therapy is sometimes given for two to three months before HIFU. This can make the prostate smaller, and make cancer easier to treat.
Transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP) is an operation to remove prostate tissue and improve the flow of urine. This operation is sometimes used before HIFU to reduce the risk of some urinary problems after the treatment.
The LEONARDO diode Laser is one of the leading medical lasers used by doctors, brought to you for the first time in the world by Fortis Hospitals, Bangalore. It is a highly compact diode laser comprising a combination of two wavelengths: 980 nm and 1470 nm. Each wavelength can either be used individually or blended, to accomplish incision, excision, vaporization, hemostasis, and coagulation of soft tissue for open and endoscopic procedures.
Leonardo diode laser is a first of its kind technology which lets surgeons perform laser surgery selectively, lets you to choose settings corresponding to the tissue types that you are working with.Benefits of using Leonardo diode laser:
Versa HD is the latest radiation therapy solution from Elekta, it has seventh generation digital control, which audits and safely orchestrates multiple linear accelerator functions. Versa HD provides advanced stereotactic treatments and conventional RT throughout the body, including the brain, delivering the flexibility to treat more patients and a wider variety of indications.
Continuous monitoring enables safe dose escalation in prostate treatment. It is also modulated up to 6X more in shorter arcs for highly conformal & efficient stereotactic treatments.Benefits of using Elekta Versa HD:
The aim of image-guided neurosurgery is to accurately project CT (computed tomography) or MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) data into the operative field for defining anatomical landmarks, pathological structures, and tumor margins.
Computer-assisted Neuro navigation allows surgeons to navigate inside the skull with the help of specialised computers that process scans the affected area in the brain and convert them to three-dimensional images. It consists of an infrared dual camera system that tracks the surgeon’s instruments during surgery and displays their position.Neurosurgery is used for:
In the case of a tumor, the doctor is able to pinpoint the exact location of the growth and excise it with utmost precision reducing the harm to normal nerves and tissues nearby. Localization of small intracranial tumor is currently the most frequent application of navigated technology in neurosurgery for adults and children.
Navigation can help make approaches to the petrosal bone safer, sparing structures of the inner ear. Ear, nose, and throat surgeons also use navigation as an aid for nasal, Paranasal, and otologic interventions.
