Wockhardt Hospitals, Mumbai Central successfully completes 200 robotic minimally invasive joint replacement surgeries

July 03,2024

Mumbai: Wockhardt Hospitals, Mumbai Central, has successfully completed 200 minimally invasive joint replacement surgeries utilising cutting-edge Makoplasty robotic techniques from its launch in October 2024.

A substantial contribution to this milestone has been made by Dr Mudit Khanna, Senior Orthopaedic Consultant & Joint Replacement Surgeon, Wockhardt Hospitals, Mumbai Central, who has individually completed 100 of these procedures within a span of few months since its launch.

The integration of the Mako Smart Robotic system has revolutionised the way complex joint replacement procedures are performed. The system is capable of performing hip replacements, partial knee replacements, and total knee replacements.

The robotic system uses CT-guided pre-planning for accurate assessments and haptic technology to ensure safety, allowing for surgeries with unparalleled accuracy. This results in reduced operative time, minimised tissue damage, and faster recovery for patients.

Dr Virendra Chauhan, Centre Head, Wockhardt Hospitals, Mumbai Central, stated, “A team of orthopaedicians trained in Mako robotic knee and hip replacement surgery has contributed to achieve the milestone of 200 plus robotic surgeries. We are immensely proud of Dr Khanna’s contributions and our team’s collective efforts in reaching this achievement.”

Dr Khanna, sharing his thoughts on the accomplishment, said, “Reaching the milestone of 100 surgeries is just the first step in utilising the transformative power of technology in modern healthcare. Makoplasty has allowed us to redefine what’s possible in orthopaedics, enabling us to deliver better outcomes and improve the quality of life for our patients.”

The hospital looks forward to the continued impact of its ground-breaking work in orthopaedic surgery.
