Medical robotic technology company SS Innovations launched its new SSI multi-arm tele-robotic surgical assistance system in the country on Tuesday priced at Rs 4-5 crore.
The company said in a statement that the current dominant robotic system is expensive and associated with a steep learning curve, resulting in limited availability.
“The price of the system will be around Rs 4-5 crore. Initially, once we go into commercial production, we will be able to produce between 150-200 robot systems in the first year. Our goal will be to increase production as we launch our own. products globally, ”said Sudhir P Srivastava, President and CEO of SSI.
“Robotics will be the future of surgery and my vision is to create a technologically advanced system that is affordable, easy to use and applicable to all surgical specialties. Hence, for the benefit of most patients around the world, “Srivastava said.
Compared to conventional surgery, robotic surgery results in smaller incisions, which reduce pain, scars and lead to faster recovery, he added.
The MANTRA (novel multi-arm robotic tele assistance) system was recently used for the first in a pilot human study at the Rajiv Gandhi Cancer Institute, where surgeons successfully completed 18 complex procedures in urology, gynecology and surgery general in less than a month, the statement said. “SS Innovations’ dedicated team of engineers and scientists have worked hard under the leadership of Dr Srivastava over the past few years to develop an affordable robotic surgical system. I congratulate them on this launch,” said Rajiv Gandhi Cancer Institute’s medical director. , Dr. Sudhir Rawal.
