Ma. Subramanian launches Apollo hospital’s robotic oncology programme

Doctors and hospitals should continuously upgrade themselves and their facilities to ensure patronage. It is not easy to maintain oneself for 38 years in the field, as the Apollo Group of hospitals has done, without keeping abreast of developments in the field, Medical Minister Ma. Subramanian said on Friday.

The Minister launched the hospital’s robotic oncology programme and commissioned the fourth generation Da Vinci surgical system Xi at the Apollo Proton Cancer Centre. “Apollo brought new developments and inventions and built its infrastructure. It is a one-of-a-kind hospital in south and central Asia. At one point, people came here for treatment from northern and northeastern States. But now, patients come from countries like Singapore and Dubai as well,” he said.

Hospital founder and chairman Prathap C. Reddy said that in the 1980s, the World Economic Forum had warned that non-communicable diseases would be the biggest burden that countries would face. India, too, had contributed to this burden, with a growing number of people suffering from heart disease, stroke and cancer. The hospital kept pace with this by bringing into the country the best equipment to treat the diseases. The Apollo Group of hospitals brought the first CT Scan, MRI and PET scan to the country, he said.

When the Apollo Proton Cancer Centre was launched two years ago, 41 of the first 100 patients were from abroad, indicating that the city had become a hub for medical tourism. The hospital would train surgeons in the use of robots. The hospital currently had 10 robots, he said, adding that robotic surgeries benefited patients.

Apollo Proton Cancer Centre, the first Proton Therapy Centre in South Asia & The Middle East today has the start of the art dedicated Robot-Assisted Cancer Surgery Unit. The Robot-Assisted Cancer Surgery Unit will offer patients with comprehensive cancer care under one roof. The unit is equipped with the advanced (fourth-generation ‘Da Vinci Surgical System-Xi’ and a dedicated team of Clinicians.

The Apollo Proton Cancer Centre offers specialized 360-degree care with the most advanced robotics system for complex surgeries. The robotic arms with endowrists have a 360+270 degree manoeuvrability which is unmatched by the human hand. This advancement improves recovery from major operations, reduces instances of infections, increases the precision of surgery and reduces the patient’s length of stay at the facility. Robotic Surgery at Apollo Proton Cancer Centre is built on the same platform of excellence and expertise. We are committed to providing patients with an exceptional experience using cutting-edge treatment options.

The state-of-the-art operating theatres are equipped with the ‘Da Vinci Surgical System-Xi’, the most advanced platform for minimally invasive surgery available today. The four-armed surgical robotic system is a breakthrough in surgical technology and is a crucial component of our integrated cancer care program. Robot-assisted surgery integrates advanced computer technology with the experience of skilled surgeons. This technology provides the surgeon with a 10x magnified, high definition, 3D-image of the body’s intricate anatomy. The controls in the console allow the surgeon to manipulate special surgical instruments that are smaller, as well as more flexible and manoeuvrable than the human hand. The surgeon is thus in complete control of the surgical procedure.

The robot helps replicate the surgeon’s hand movements while minimizing hand tremors. The surgery is thus conducted with enhanced precision, dexterity, and control even during the most complex procedures.
