New Delhi [India], December 6: In a first for Northeast India, a 54-year-old patient has been given a new pain-free walk for life with a successful Cruciate Retaining Robotic Total Knee Replacement at Guwahati Medical College and Hospital, Guwahati, Assam. The surgery was performed by globally renowned Limca Book of Records Holder, Dr. Sujoy Bhattacharjee, H.O.D & Director of the World's First Centre for CR Robotic Knee Replacement at Sarvodaya Hospital, Sector 8, Faridabad, Delhi NCR.
The patient, a localite was suffering from severe knee pain for a few months. He had difficulty walking and performing basic household chores for which he was advised for a knee transplant in the right knee. Dr. Sujoy Bhattacharjee, who holds experience of over 20000 joint replacements performed the surgery, leveraging the revolutionary CUVIS joint replacement robot.
Explaining the surgery, Dr. Sujoy said, "The patient's right knee had deteriorated and surgery was paramount and hence we decided to perform Robotic Knee replacement. Post-scanning, the desired bone cuts and implant size were fed into the robot that conducted the bone cuts with great precision, minimizing the possibility of errors. We managed to retain the posterior knee ligament (cruciate) of the patient, which otherwise was not possible with traditional methods."

Ligament preservation gives patients a natural knee-like feeling making them forget that they are living with a knee transplant, a concept called the 'Forgotten Knee'. Sarvodaya Hospital in Faridabad, Delhi NCR was North India's first hospital to bring the revolutionary CUVIS Robot and has now healed over 2000 patients with CR Robotic Knee Replacement.
Dr. Sujoy adds, "The patient was able to walk in a few hours after the surgery and can now perform basic routine activities hassle-free. Robot-assisted surgery has huge advantages over conventional methods. These include improved accuracy and precision of implant positioning, less bone and blood loss, and ligament preservation with much less possibility of human errors or soft-tissue injuries. The surgeries result in greater operative accuracy and reduced pain, ensuring early rehabilitation and mobilisation of the patient."
Robotic joint replacement ensures an active lifestyle, enabling the patient to perform a range of movements, from sitting cross-legged on the floor to climbing stairs on their own, without any support. Doctor Sujoy and Sarvodaya Hospital have begun a new era of transformation in the medical fraternity in the Northeast by performing this revolutionary technique for the first time in Northeast India.
