Tech Update: Country's cheapest and first robotic surgery system, 18 trial operation successful


Technology has now gone so far that the common people have not even imagined and the best use of these technologies is being made in robotics. Humans have developed much of the world's work by the development of robot robots. From news anchoring to cleaning and shifting of goods in the warehouse, the robots are now comfortable. Robots have now become doctors and are also doing major operations, although robotics surgery is quite expensive and very rare in India. Now, to meet this shortfall, a company called SS Innovation of Delhi has been gearing up. Very few of you will know that robotics surgery has started in India too. Today we will tell you about South Asia's first and India's cheapest robotic surgery system and.

Mantra Surgical Robotic System

SS Innovation is a New Delhi-based company that designed the Mantra Surgical Robotic System. The company is owned by Dr. Sudhir P. Srivastava, himself a cardiothoracic surgeon and specializes in robotic surgery. The Mantra Surgical Robot is claimed to be the cheapest robotic surgery system in India. By the end of this year, 100 units of this surgery system are going to be installed across the country.

Units of 17 crores for just 5 crores

The Mantra Surgical Robotic System is said to be the cheapest system because one unit costs 4-5 crores, while a unit of global surgical robotic systems like Da Vinci costs 15-17 crores. India currently has only 70-80 robotics units, which is much lower than many other countries.

A trial conducted at Rajiv Gandhi Cancer Institute

The Mantra Surgical Robotic System has been trialed at the Rajiv Gandhi Cancer Institute. During the trial, more than 18 urology, gynecology, and general surgeries have been successfully performed in less than a month for this system. This system can be used in Urology, General Surgery, Gynecology, Thoracic, Cardiac, and Head and Neck Surgery.

Only 6,500 robotic circuit systems in the world

You will be surprised to know that in India, its market is negligible but in developed countries, only 6,000-6,500 robotic circuit systems have been installed in the last two decades. Da Vinci makes the robot company Intuitive from California and the same company topped the market share with 5,600-5,700 units. Apart from this, companies like Versius, Johnson & Johnson are also preparing to launch their surgical robots by 2020.
