Ludhiana has reached an important milestone in knee replacement as it became the first city in Northern India to have the world’s most widely adopted US FDA approved Mako Robotic Arm-Assisted Technology. The first Mako System in Northern India has been installed at Hunjan Hospital, said a press release issued jointly by Stryker India, a leading global medical device company, headquartered in the US, and Hunjan Hospital, a renowned orthopaedics hospital in the city of Ludhiana. 

The launch comes as an important milestone for Hunjan Hospital and Stryker, in their endeavour to bring the most advanced technology and treatment for patients suffering from knee joint disorders.

Congratulating Hunjan Hospital on this important milestone, Meenakshi Nevatia, Vice President and Managing Director, Stryker India, said, “We are very happy to partner with Hunjan Hospital and it is indeed a proud moment for Stryker. We are truly excited about the potential impact on serving patients needing knee replacement across Northern India.”

Dr BS Hunjan, Director and Joint Replacement Surgeon, Hunjan Hospital, said, “With Mako, we have been able to know more about our patients than ever before and we are able to cut less. For some patients, this can mean less soft tissue damage and for others greater bone preservation.”

Dr Jaiveer Hunjan, Consultant Orthopaedics, Hunjan Hospital further added, “The Mako System will enhance our accuracy significantly. As suggested by the literature and our experience with initial surgeries, we have seen tremendous patient benefits such as precise planning and bone cuts, more bone and soft tissue preservation, less post-op pain, faster recovery, quicker discharge and less blood loss.”
