Moreover, patients can avail this expensive service at a very affordable price at JIPMER in comparison to several corporate hospitals in the country.

The procedure was led by a team of doctors, including anaesthesiologists headed by Sandeep Mishra, head of anaesthesiology and V. K. Mohan, assistant professor, and urologists led by R. Manikandan, head of the department of urology.

S.C. Parija, director, Jipmer said the rapid development of these services would not have been possible without the efforts of a dedicated team of anaesthesiologists, surgeons of different specialties, nurses and other staff.

According to Mr. Parija, the institute is also gearing up to start robotically assisted procedures in other departments like paediatric, cardiac, thoracic, vascular, ENT and others.
