30 August 2021 | News

The centre aims at heralding a new era for knee replacement surgery

The Knee Clinic at ACI-Cumballa Hill Hospital announced the launch of Mumbai district’s first Robotic Knee Replacement Center on 29 August. The NAVIO-CORI Robotics platform is one of the foremost healthcare innovations of this decade, heralding a new era for knee replacement surgery.

 

Dr Miten Sheth, (Orthopaedics) Knee Surgeon, said, “Traditionally, knee replacement surgery has always depended either on the surgeon’s judgement or a computer for planning. Robotic knee replacements are set to change the paradigm by offering robotics assistance for both planning and execution of the surgery.”

 

Present at the launch event were dignitaries such as Kishori Pednekar, Mayor of Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC), Karnam Malleswari, India’s first Olympic medallist in weightlifting amongst many others.

 

Malleswari said, “We can aim at an enhanced reach with the right collaborations with non-profit organisations and Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) programmes, educating athletes about injury prevention and treatment. Let us work together to improve healthcare reach to the Indian sporting ecosystem with technology and let the best treatment transcend social and economic barriers.”
