Robotic surgeries have seen maximum application across urological, gynecology, oncology, orthopaedic and cardiothoracic procedures, the statement said.

Given its superior clinical precision, the use of robotics in surgeries has been instrumental in reducing the overall hospital stay of patients, enabling faster recovery in most cases.

For instance, on average, Apollo Hospitals has witnessed a reduction in its patient hospital time by up to 25 per cent in joint replacement procedures, up to 20 per cent in urological procedures, and by up to a whopping 50 per cent in cardiac robotic surgeries, the statement said.

Dr. Prathap Reddy, Chairman, of Apollo Hospitals Group, said, "For 40 years, Apollo has pioneered the innovation in treatments to give patients the best care. Robotics is one more step in our mission to bring the best healthcare to all and we strongly believe that it will form the backbone of our country's medical infrastructure in the decade to come."
