 Bombay Hospital Achieves Milestone of 100 Computer Assisted Total Knee Replacement Surgeries
The Bombay Hospital has achieved a big milestone of having performed 100 computer assisted Total Knee Replacement (TKR) surgeries using Stryker's OrthoMap Articular Surface Mounted (ASM) Knee Navigation.

The new technique is one of the ways to perform the Mini Subvastus Approach (MSVA). "Due to the combination of MSVA and ASM navigation, hospital stay has been reduced to as little as 2 to 3 days and knee replacement has become an extremely predictable and reliable procedure in relieving the pain and discomfort of arthritis," orthopaedic and joint replacement consultant Dr. Nilen Shah told pharmbiz.com.

Dr Shah also said that many patients can go home within 48 hours after surgery and that the recovery period is also accelerated with this method.
