Dr.Ashwath Narayan CN karnataka IT and Higher Education Minister and Dr.Sharan Shivaraj Patil MD of Sparsh Hospital introduced Mako Robotic machine in Bengaluru.

Bengaluru : In the endeavour to redefine healthcare and offer the most advanced treatment options for patients , SPARSH Group of Hospitals has unveiled a series of initiatives as a part of its technology adoption and digital transformation journey . SPARSH has introduced five key healthcare technologies that comprises the following ● SPARSH Hospital Unveils the Future Of Healthcare ‘ SPARSH introduces Mako Robotic – Arm Assisted Surgery for Joint Replacement along with many other tech and digital transformation initiatives Mako : A Robotic Arm used for Joint Replacement Surgeries that enables surgeons to deliver more predictable surgical outcomes with increased accuracy . 3D Printing Technology : The future of high accuracy surgery and customised implants is a game changer in surgical intervention . O – arm and StealthStation S8 : high – precision surgical imaging and navigation . system for brain surgeries : The O – arm System provides high – quality 2D and 3D images which are automatically synced to the StealthStation S8 Navigation system . Using these high – definition intraoperative scans , the StealthStation S8 navigation system allows surgeons to visualise the patient’s anatomy in 3D and localise instruments and implants throughout the procedure . Kinevo 900-3D Microscope : The Kinevo 900 is a robotic visualisation system that offers a unique micro – inspection tool and surgeon – controlled robotics . ● SPARSH patient portal app : An integrated patient app to store all patient information , services , reports , and test results . Patients can also schedule virtual doctor consultations , download e – prescription and make payments through a wallet available within the app . Commenting on the new initiatives , Dr. Sharan Shivaraj Patil , Chairman , SPARSH Hospital , said , ” At SPARSH , we have been early adopters of cutting – edge technology that can offer precision , faster recovery , and better experience for our patients . We believe that technology – assisted procedures unquestionably offer more precision and accuracy as comparedto conventional manual surgeries . The expertise and acumen of our clinicians , coupled with the finesse and meticulousness offered by smart tech tools will allow us to offer the highest quality of care to our patients . We will continue to introduce many more such initiatives that have the potential to reinvent healthcare Over the last decade , technologies such as advanced imaging , robotics , and artificial intelligence have played a key role in enhancing the standard of care and making surgical science more precise . The concept of technology – enabled hospitals is slowly becoming an essential part of improving patient experience and elevating the quality of care , resulting in faster recovery and better outcomes . SPARSH has been an early adopter of many of these technologies that have helped redefine the quality of care and offer high – precision surgical procedures . The newly introduced Mako Robotic – Arm Assisted Technology allows surgeons to reproduce precise bone cuts for patients , every single time , first on a virtual 3D model and then in the operation theatre . In case of a knee or hip surgery , Mako System’s software helps create a 3D model of the diseased joint based on the patient’s CT scan . The software then allows creating a personalized virtual surgical plan for each patient , based on their specific disease condition . This planning , done even before entering the operation theatre , helps in deciding the most accurate bone cuts and alignment of implants . The technology , with its insightful data analytics , allows the surgeon to modify the plan during the surgery if required . And once the plan is locked , the Mako System assists the surgeon in executing the bone cuts in the operation theatre . Mako SmartRobotics ™ platform has shown , through published clinical studies , that patients experienced improved early function , lower pain , less postoperative pain , less need for analgesics , and fewer physiotherapy sessions compared to manual surgery for Total Knee surgery . Dr. Ashwath Narayan CN , Minister of Higher Education , IT & BT , Govt of Karnataka , said , ” As the IT capital of the country , Bengaluru has been a leader in introducing and implementing technology – driven solutions that have transformed people’s lives . In the field of healthcare , technology has the potential to improve care quality and create easier accessibility . I would like to congratulate Dr. Sharan and his for implementing these solutions . We need more initiatives like this that can help Bengaluru become a sought – after destination for advanced medical procedures “
