The All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) is poised to begin a pioneering training program in robotic surgery, ushering in a new era of medical advancement. This innovative program is set to revolutionize the way surgeons operate, providing them with the cutting-edge tools they need to deliver the highest level of care. With the aid of robots, surgeons can carry out complex surgeries with greater precision and accuracy, ultimately leading to improved patient outcomes. This ground-breaking initiative promises to open doors to a new chapter of medical advancements, transforming how surgeries are performed in India.
AIIMS has announced the formation of a robotic surgery training facility, open to all medical professionals from the institute and other healthcare organizations nationwide. Prof M Srinivas, the institute's director, has issued an official memorandum outlining that due to the presence of enough master trainers at AIIMS, such a facility is required to be established to help doctors from AIIMS and other healthcare facilities advance their skills. According to Dr. Srinivas, "This unprecedented move is sure to revolutionize the medical industry in India."
Drawing on their extensive experience with robotic surgical systems and a dedicated pool of faculty, AIIMS will shortly be issuing an open invitation to the leading manufacturers to collaborate in the construction of training facilities across the institute's many campuses. Promising to provide approximately 500 square feet of space, cadavers, tissues, and a team of highly trained personnel, AIIMS is confident that the medical world at large will feel the impact of this ground-breaking initiative.
The prestigious organization plans to facilitate and develop training in robotic surgery, a revolutionary innovation in minimally invasive surgery free of cost. In addition, external experts may be invited for their guidance on cutting-edge techniques, with the AIIMS authorities' consent. Doctors have heralded the introduction of robot-assisted surgeries to reduce the backlog of operations and enable medical professionals within India to gain the requisite knowledge without having to travel abroad. At present, robotic surgeries are limited to the urology branch, according to AIIMS officials.
