Visit doctor once you start feeling pain while walking: Kolkata-based orthopaedic surgeon Rajput advises patients suffering from knee problem

The Calcutta Medical Research Institute (CMRI) on Thursday marked the completion of 500 successful robotic joint replacement surgeries in the Kolkata-based medical facility when a top surgeon advised that patients should not delay the procedure and should undergo it at the perfect time.

“You should not delay it. You have to do the right thing at the right time. Don’t wait for things till the last minute. You should visit the doctor and get the proceedings done once you start feeling the pain while walking,” Rakesh Rajput, Director & HOD, Department of Orthopaedics said.

Advocating the role of technology in bone health to ensure freedom from pain for patients, the team of doctors led by Rajput highlighted how the technologically advanced robotic joint replacement surgery has enabled them to give fresh life to numerous patients within a year and a half.

Rajput said, “Robot-assisted surgery has become a state-of-the-art technology which enables operating with enhanced precision and accuracy.”

“The team at CMRI, was the first to introduce this surgery in Eastern India with the latest cutting-edge technology and have empowered over 500 patients within a short span of 18 months to gain freedom from pain,” he said.

He said robot-assisted surgeries ensure quality diagnoses while minimising risk, making care delivery more efficient to improve the quality of life among patients.

“At CMRI, we are currently offering both Robotic Total Knee Replacement and Robotic Partial Knee Replacement surgery,” he said.

“We are also conducting patients who require Hip Replacement with Robot. One should note that the Robotic Partial Knee Replacement is going to be the surgery of this decade till 2030,” he said.

Sombrata Roy, Unit Head-CMRI, CK Birla Hospitals, said, “CMRI was the first hospital to bring this technology for patients in the eastern part of the country, immediately after it was launched in the Western World and in India.’’
