The indigenously developed surgical robot SSI Mantra has 'successfully completed' 100 surgeries, its manufacturer SS Innovations said.

In a statement, the firm said, the surgical robot SSI Mantra was first commercially installed at Rajiv Gandhi Cancer Institute, New Delhi in July last year and it was installed at hospitals like Sanjeevani CBCC USA Cancer Hospital, Raipur; Continental Hospital, Hyderabad and Hindustan Hospital, Coimbatore later, the statement said.

“Robotic-assisted surgeries have gained significant ground in the last few years and patients are increasingly embracing it for the high clinical outcomes, low risk and faster recoveries,” the manufacturer stated. Dr. Sudhir Srivastava, Founder, Chairman and CEO, SS Innovations said the achievement marks a significant milestone in India’s quest to redefine the surgical landscape of the country. “SSI MANTRA costing just one-third of its global competitors has significantly brought down the cost of surgeries making it much more affordable. India can now look forward to high-end medical care and surgeries without having to worry much about the cost factor,” Srivastava said.

The SSI Mantra Surgical Robotic System is a modular multi-arm system and it allows for the use of 3-5 robotic arms, has an open-faced ergonomic Surgeon Command Centre, a 32-inch large 3D HD monitor, a 23-inch 2D Touch panel monitor for all patient-related information display, a virtual real-time image of the robotic Patient Side Arm Carts, and the ability for superimposition of holographic DICOM images, the release said.
