WLH sets new world record; trains 1,000 doctors in robotic surgery
Gurugram-based World Laparoscopy Hospital recently set a world record by training 1,000 surgeons and gynaecologists from 108 countries in the advanced field of robotic surgery.
The remarkable milestone achieved under the leadership of Dr R K Mishra exemplifies the hospital’s reputation as a leader in the medical field. The hospital claims to be only the the second institute in India after AIIMS to perform robotic surgery in India which underscores its commitment to propelling worldwide medical advancement.
Commenting on the feat, Dr Mishra said, “Training surgeons from across the globe in robotic surgery has been a challenging yet rewarding journey. We are proud to have reached this milestone, but our mission does not stop here. We are committed to continually advancing surgical education and improving patient care worldwide.”
Robotic surgery, a branch of minimally invasive surgery, allows surgeons to perform complex surgical procedures with more precision, flexibility, and control than is possible with conventional techniques. However, the implementation of this advanced technology in a country like India, where the medical infrastructure is varied and often under-resourced, is a challenging task.
The training program has been instrumental in equipping a new generation of surgeons and gynecologists with the skills and knowledge required for robotic surgery. The hospital’s landmark achievement of training 1,000 surgeons and gynaecologists from 108 countries underscores its global impact in shaping the future of medical science.
The advanced surgical system enhances the surgeon’s capabilities, leading to improved patient outcomes, reduced pain and discomfort, less risk of infection, shorter hospital stays, quicker recoveries, and smaller, less noticeable scars. Zee Business
