In a remarkable display of medical innovation, doctors at Ramkrishna Care Hospital have used the da Vinci surgical robot to treat a 65-year-old woman from Bilaspur suffering from the rare autoimmune disease, Ocular Myasthenia Gravis. The woman arrived at the hospital with complaints of weakness and drooping eyelids, and after a thorough evaluation and scan, a tumor was discovered causing the disease.
Dr. Sandeep Dave, a veteran general surgeon at Ramkrishna Care Hospital, recommended a robotic thymectomy to remove the tumor, citing the numerous benefits of the procedure over traditional open surgery. The patient underwent the surgery with the help of the da Vinci robot, which offers precise, minimally invasive treatment options.
The patient recovered quickly from the surgery with minimal pain and scarring, and is now undergoing periodic follow-ups and is doing well. Ramkrishna Care Hospital is the first hospital in the state of Chhattisgarh to introduce robotic-assisted surgery, and with the advanced da Vinci system, they are now able to perform various procedures with a minimally invasive approach.
