Muljibhai Patel Urological Hospital (NADIAD) Acquires Latest ROBOT for Urological Surgeries
Nadiad, Gujarat, India

The Muljibhai Patel Urological Hospital in Nadiad has become the first hospital in Gujarat to acquire the latest state-of-the-art robotic surgical system - the da Vinci Si from Intuitive Surgical, at a cost of Rs.10 crores.

Robot plays a major role in treating cancer of kidney, bladder and prostate and doing reconstructive procedures in a minimally invasive manner.

The advantages of the Robotic surgery include:

Superior Visualization: 3-D HD vision with high magnification for more accurate tissue identification and tissue layer differentiation.

It reduces natural hand tremor and its proprietary EndoWrist allows precision and control beyond the capabilities of the human hand.

Superior Ergonomics: It has superior ergonomics with natural hand-eye alignment.

Superior patient benefits: Significantly less pain; Less blood loss; Less scarring; Shorter hospital stay and earlier return to work with better clinical outcomes.

"We have always been on the fore-front of bringing cutting-edge technologies for the better treatment of our patients, and the da Vinci Si system is the latest effort in making modern world-class care available to our patients" said Dr Mahesh Desai, managing Trustee and Medical Director of the hospital. In this regard they have partnered with the highly reputed team of robotic and minimally invasive surgery from the University of Southern California led by Dr Inderbir Gill. Dr Ravindra Sabnis, Chairman of the Department of Urology says "Dr Gill and his team have helped us set up our laparoscopic program almost 10 years ago and since then our hospital has performed over 1500 laparoscopic urologic procedures. We are aiming to repeat this with robotic surgery". Dr Mihir Desai, Professor of Urology and Director of Robotic Surgery at University of Southern California will be at Nadiad to perform the initial cases of robotic surgery. "Robotic surgery has expanded exponentially and it is great to see the benefit of this technology will be available to more patients in India" said Dr Mihir Desai. Dr Gill, Chairman of the USC Institute of Urology said "We at USC are committed in transferring our knowledge and expertise to our esteemed colleagues overseas". He also added that the partnership between his team and MPUH over the last 10 years has included setting up a robust minimally invasive program, organizing postgraduate conferences, and partnering in cutting edge research. "We are excited to help develop the incredible potential for robotic urologic surgery in India" Dr Gill concluded.
