Srinagar, July 17: The Jammu and Kashmir is all set to get two robots for conducting surgeries as the Premier Health Institute-Government Medical College Srinagar-has imparted the requisite training to 130 surgeons working in different health institutes across Kashmir.
The Government Medical College Srinagar in collaboration with a private firm had organized a workshop to train surgeons in Srinagar. “130 surgeons including senior and junior residents currently deployed in Medical Colleges and Associated hospitals of these colleges were trained. The workshop ended today,” Dr Mufti Mahmood, who heads General Surgery department of Government Medical College Srinagar, told Early Times over phone.
Dr Mufti Mahmood said that they had put forward a proposal for procurement of robots for conducting surgeries long ago but this time the Government has paced up the process.
“As per my information it is (for procurement of robots) is in the last phase of its settlement. JKMSCL has done the process and there are certain formalities they have to do and hopefully we will get two robots for the Jammu and Kashmir valley,” he said.
Dr Mufti Mahmood said that the Government was seriously following the issue and ‘some financial issues hampering the process too have been resolved.
In a statement, GMC Srinagar said that hands-on training about the Robotic Surgery workshop organized by the Department of Surgery Government medical college Srinagar concluded with a lot of hope, optimism and enthusiasm among the delegates.
“The robotic surgery being the latest innovation in the field of minimal access surgery remains largely unavailable to the people of the valley who are often compelled by their need to travel outside the state for benefiting from the advantages offered by the Robotics,” remarked surgeons.
World renowned Gastroenterologist Prof. MS Khuroo in his speech stressed the need for innovation in the field of medical Sciences.
Prof Samia Rasheed, Principal Medical College Srinagar assured and informed that 4th generation Da Vinci- Xi surgical Robotic system was on its way to the Government Medical College Srinagar.
As of now, surgeries are performed in two ways - either the conventional way or the laparoscopic way which is known as minimally invasive surgery. However, with the introduction of robotic surgery, it will be possible for a surgeon to use robotic technology during an operation.
Prof Mufti Mahmood the Organising Chairman and the man behind the show highlighted the inescapable needs of having such a system available to the people of the valley. It was also on this occasion that a dedicated educational YouTube channel created and managed by the Department of Surgery GMC Srinagar was inaugurated with much fanfare and happiness among the students.
The channel will serve the present and future generations of medical professionals in sharpening the knowledge and skill in the field of Surgery. Dr Naikoo, a senior faculty member and leading surgeon said, "The introduction of robotic surgery will take the level of patient and health care facilities to new heights."
