Kauvery Hospital, Chennai, modernizes delivery of healthcare with the launch of World’s Advanced 4k, 3d and Robotic Visualisation Technology to aid neurosurgery

The advanced neurosurgery unit at Kauvery Hospital was inaugurated by  Dr. C. Vijayabhaskar, Health Minister, Government of  Tamil Nadu and Air Marshall Simhakutty Varthaman on  Wednesday, 21st August  2019 in the  presence of  Dr. Aravindan  Selvaraj, Executive director,  Kauvery Hospital, Chennai, Dr. Shyam  Sundar Krishnan, Senior Consultant, Brain and  Spine Surgeon and Dr. Balamurali Gopalakrishnan, Senior Consultant Spine and  Neurosurgeon. 

Setting a new benchmark in adoption of technology in healthcare, Kauvery Hospital, a leading multi – specialty and tertiary care hospital chain, will  provide comprehensive and advanced neuro and spine treatment using 3D  and robotic technology. The neurosurgery department will be led by, a team of experts, Dr. Shyam Sundar Krishnan, Senior Consultant, Brain and Spine  Surgeon and Dr. Balamurali Gopalakrishnan, Senior Consultant Spine  and Neurosurgeon.

With the launch of advanced neurosurgical unit, Kauvery Hospital will be  at the forefront for providing cutting-edge neurology treatment. The newly  unveiled 3D microscope and robotic surgical device helps in 

  • Enhancing safety and précising 
  • Improved quality of outcome
  • Decreased surgical time & Infection

In addition to the 3D microscope, the revolutionary neuro – navigation facility will help in effectively treating the tumour without damaging  adjoining blood vessels and other tissues, in the brain and spine and high -end endoscopic removal of tumours. The neuro department will also have  facilities of –

  1. The Neuronavigation System
  2. The Ultrasonic Aspirator System
  3. The Neuro Endoscopy
  4. The Stereotactic System
  5. The 3D Robotic Microscope

Speaking on the occasion, Dr. C. Vijayabhaskar, Health Minister of  Government of Tamil Nadu said, “This is a commendable initiative by Kauvery Hospital, Chennai  to adopt advanced technology in treating brain  and spine tumours. Today, technology is advanced in such a way that  precision surgery is possible and that that too in the brain and spine. I am  glad to know that Kauvery Hospital possess the know-how and the capability  to make it accessible to the common man.”

“We are happy to have launched a high – end neurosurgery department driven  by latest technology at Kauvery Hospital. This will not only enhance  the quality of neuro surgeries but also add value to the healthcare sector in  the country. The 3D technology and robotic microscope will help in treating  brain tumours, spinal cord tumours and spinal fixation. Visual colour coding  of tumours ensures a complete removal of tumour. Similarly, virtual flow in  blood vessels helps in treating vascular lesions. The neuro-navigation device  will help in understanding the structure and relationship of the tumour/lesion  with adjoining normal tissue while operating. This device will  help us deal with difficult and complex tumour locations which will help us to  navigate through tumours that were once difficult or  complex.”, said Dr. Shyam Sundar Krishna, Senior Consultant, Brain  and Spine Surgeon,  Kauvery Hospital, Chennai.

Dr. Balamurali Gopalakrishnan, Senior Consultant Spine and  Neurosurgeon, Head of Advanced Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery  Department, Kauvery Hospital, Chennai commented on the occasion, “In the past decade, great advances have been  made that has taken accuracy of  spine treatment to a new height to avoid bad outcomes. Also known as  “computer-assisted, image-guidance,” navigation technology is advancing at  a rapid rate, combined with minimally invasive techniques that has made  spine surgery precise, safe and reproducible. Spinal navigation technology  produces a virtual reality 3-D model of the patient’s spine which enables the  surgeon to more accurately place spinal instrumentation, perform  decompression, remove tumours and other tasks. Surgeries can even be  planned ‘virtually’ on the computer before a procedure. This technology  reduces the radiation exposure to patient and staff during surgery and is a  precursor of Artificial Intelligence technology of the future.”

“Kauvery Hospital always strives to be abreast with the latest technologies in  the healthcare sector, across the world. Advancements in technology has  played a huge role in changing outcomes and delivery of healthcare. Through  adoption of 3D and robotic technology, the advanced neurosurgical unit at  Kauvery Hospital will provide precise and error-free treatment to our  patients. We are pleased to provide speciality treatment by renowned medical  experts in the field of neurosurgery, who are trained to use this 3D and  robotic technology. This will pave way for Kauvery Hospital to be a preferred  destination for holistic healthcare, particularly for performing neurosurgery”  said Dr. Aravindan Selvaraj, Executive director, Kauvery Hospital,  Chennai.
