Kolkata: Joint-replacement surgeries get a boost with Peerless hospital launching humanoid robotics

| @indiablooms | 05 Apr 2024, 11:08 pm

Kolkata/IBNS: Kolkata's Peerless Hospital on Thursday announced the launch of Humanoid Robotics — the latest technology for hip, knee and shoulder replacement with 3D robotics, AI platform and mixed reality with Hololens powered by Microsoft — for the first time in eastern India.

Hololens is a CT scan based augmented reality AI assisted technology which enables surgeons to achieve an accurate 3D plan, with execution and validation of the bony cuts. 

Microsoft-powered HoloLens assisted cloud based system is an augmented reality system where a CT scan of the patients diseased joint and limb is done.

A computer programme helps in calculating the appropriate alignment of that patient.

When the surgeon is operating, the HoloLens allows the surgeon to validate the cuts and achieve the desired alignment.

This technology helps in achieving personalized alignment with the freedom to use the implant best suited for that particular patient.

Robotic surgery on the other hand allows only specific implants that match that particular robotic make. Humanoid Robotics allows the surgeon the intra operative capacity vision of the whole limb during surgery.

Since Humanoid Robotics is AI dependent it allows surgeons complete control in 3D planning and appropriate execution and customization thereby reducing computational errors to give the best patient solution.

The augmented reality helps to achieve the desired perfection with an aim towards improved function and longevity of the replaced joint.

An official of the privately-run health facility said that the time required for this AI powered surgery is less as compared to robotic surgery, while the new technology is cheaper than robotic surgery.

"A HoloLens can be bought by spending around Rs 20-25 lakh, where a robotic arm costs more than Rs 3.5cr. So, the cost of the operation using HoloLens is patient friendly with equal or better precision than robotic surgery," he said.

He added that customised implants and patient specific implants can be used while using humanoid robotics, and cases where the bone strength is compromised and traditional means of replacement surgery is not possible humanoid robotics makes it possible.
