Robot-Assisted Knee Relief: Mrs. Reema’s Journey to Pain-Free Living

Mumbai, 23rd February 2024 – In the realm of medical advancements, the intersection of technology and compassionate care often becomes a beacon of hope for patients facing intricate health challenges. Mrs. Reema’s journey at Wockhardt Hospital, Mumbai Central, serves as a compelling testament to the transformative power of robotics in overcoming complex orthopedic dilemmas.

Mrs. Reema found herself in the clutches of end-stage arthritis, a condition that rendered even the simplest steps a painful ordeal. Adding to the complexity, an earlier intervention had left a rod embedded in her right thigh bone, presenting a formidable obstacle to the much-needed knee replacement surgeries. The dilemma loomed large: Should she undergo a protracted and arduous surgery to remove the rod?

Dr. Manan Shah, Consultant Joint Replacement surgeon at Wockhardt Hospitals Mumbai Central, devised a meticulous plan tailored to Mrs. Reema’s unique situation. The strategy unfolded in two phases, addressing each knee with a thoughtful approach that combined conventional and robotic surgical techniques.

The first phase involved a conventional knee replacement on Mrs. Reema’s left side. This procedure allowed her to recover and regain mobility without the need for extensive measures. It was a pivotal step in preparing her for the subsequent challenges posed by the rod in her right thigh bone.

The second phase marked the introduction of cutting-edge technology – the Stryker Mako robot. This state-of-the-art robotic system offered a revolutionary solution by enabling knee replacement surgery on the right side without the necessity of removing the embedded rod. The precision and adaptability of the Stryker Mako robot allowed Dr. Manan Shah and his team to navigate the intricate contours of Mrs. Reema’s anatomy, tailoring the procedure to match her natural bone shape with unparalleled accuracy.

The decision to utilize robotic assistance not only spared Mrs. Reema from the rigors of an unnecessary surgery to remove the rod but also facilitated a level of precision that traditional methods might struggle to achieve. The robot’s ability to fine-tune the surgical plan ensured a personalized and optimized outcome for the patient.

In the aftermath of this innovative approach, Mrs. Reema has emerged triumphant. With newfound comfort and confidence, she has seamlessly reintegrated into her routine life, free from the shackles of debilitating knee pain. The success of this case not only reflects the skill and expertise of Dr. Manan Shah but also underscores the commitment of Wockhardt Hospitals, Mumbai Central, to embrace advancements that enhance patient outcomes and quality of life.
