Experts like Dr Raj Nagakar wanted to make the Robotic surgery Program a successful one, but the results were much better than expected.

From a few years back to now, there has been a major shift in the mind-set, people always felt Robotic surgery is too expensive and out of their reach.

This technology would soon become affordable to the masses due to the innovation in tech and rising awareness towards Robotic Surgery.

They will become more affordable to the people only when we adopt such innovative Robots into our medical centres. Specifically designed to meet the needs of patients, surgeons and surgical teams alike, Versius is a next-generation surgical robot.

Ultimately benefiting many patients, the adaptability and dexterity of Versius mean it can be adopted by hospitals worldwide.

Been proved challenging for some surgeons to learn, laparoscopic surgery reduces the size of the incision needed to operate. Controlled by surgeons via a console and screen, Versius on the other hand was developed to bio mimic the movement of the human arm. There is less pain, less bleeding and less risk of infection, as far as the patient is concerned.

Dr Raj Nagakar who has performed hundreds of surgeries during the Covid-19 Era with The Versius Surgical Robot on these lines says, ” we were delighted to know more about the Versius system as it was an innovative and cost-effective system which we knew would enable us to further our commitment of providing quality cancer care to the people of the Maharashtra region, who until then had not had access to the benefits of robotic surgery. We wanted to make this more accessible to them and we felt that Versius was the best way in doing so”.

In the years to come, this is going to be a big advantage and for the benefit of mankind. With a lower risk of infection and complications, it makes the surgery safer and more acceptable to the patient. Therefore, Versius is far superior in its outcomes as compared to the other conventional ones. Experts like Dr Raj Nagakar wanted to make the Robotic surgery Program a successful one, but the results were much better than expected.

Since the introduction of Versius at his centre in October 2019, including complex cancer resection, they have conducted over 400 robotic-assisted surgeries. Whilst battling Covid-19 for 16 months of this period, out of the 20 months of operation with the Versius Robot, they were able to achieve this figure.

Including reduced pain, and length of stay, they are seeing clear patient benefits. Helping to reduce physical tiredness from surgery, additionally the open console means doctors can operate comfortably. Dr Raj Nagakar has done six robotic-assisted procedures in one single day, without getting tired, himself.

With experience comes speed. Robotic surgery is most suitable for people who cannot afford to recuperate for a long time at home as they must make ends meet. The advantage of Versius Robotic surgery is that it provides a three-dimensional image, which is magnified 16 times along with precision where blood loss is less, collateral damage to tissues is less, chances of infection are less, post-operative pain is very less, and recovery is faster.

Versius is cost-effective both for the hospital and the patient and it is less taxing as far as the surgical part is concerned. In the decade to come, the Versius Surgical Robot will be part of every surgical armamentarium. It’s our responsibility to pass on the knowledge and expose young doctors to robotic surgery.
