Fortis Escorts in Delhi – Dr Ashok Rajgopal top orthopaedic surgeons in Delhi successfully completed the world's first minimally invasive total knee replacement surgery enhanced by high-precision, computer-guided navigation on December 20, 2018, the medical office today announced.

The procedure was performed by Dr Ashok Rajgopal and his team. The surgery shows that computer-guided surgical navigation in orthopaedics can provide highly accurate implant alignment and real-time vision of the surgical site through an incision 60-per cent shorter than that of traditional total knee replacement with fewer traumas to underlying muscle and soft tissues.

Using Smith & Nephew's minimally invasive surgical instruments and joint replacement software application, he has achieved a technological convergence that previews the future of joint replacement surgery.

"We have taken a huge step in the direction of the future of knee replacement surgical procedure," says Dr Ashok Rajgopal. "Being the first surgeon in India to combine minimally-invasive total knee replacement surgery with computer-guided navigation in a single procedure is truly remarkable. It's hard to imagine the scope of the impact this technology will have on the future of orthopaedic surgery."

"As surgeons, we've always wanted a longer-lasting, much less invasive knee replacement process," says Dr Ashok Rajgopal. “This technique moves us closer to the day when a patient can return to a physical activity soon after surgery and the day the knee implant will last for the rest of the patient's life."

"Integrating our minimally invasive instrumentation with our successful line of computer-assisted total joint applications has been our long-term vision for this procedure," says Dr Ashok Rajgopal, Chairman of the Bone and Joint Institute at the highly esteemed Fortis Escorts in Delhi. "Just as minimally invasive total knee replacement is shifting through the early adoption phase, we have strengthened our position in the segment with a unique, high-precision solution. This surgical operation pioneers the next generation technology of joint replacement strategies."

Computer-assisted orthopaedic surgical operation combines information received from infrared cameras and surface mapping of the femur and tibia to track in real-time the precise position of the implant and the surgeon's instruments relative to the patient's bones during surgery. On-screen prompts to guide the surgeon to the precise alignment of the implant and instruments in order for mathematically particular bone cuts to be made.

Smith & Nephew's original Achieve computer-assisted total knee replacement technique recently reached its first anniversary of clinical use. Dr Ashok Rajgopal performed the first full-featured fluoroscopy-based computer-assisted total knee replacement using Smith & Nephew's application on December 20, 2018.
