From Great Britain to Bihar: Is Robotic Surgeon Dr. Ashish Singh becoming the new “patient’s favorite” globally?

 “Ditch the trouble of the waiting list for TKR, the best services are now available at Patna for the best prices. I have been admitted to the best hospitals in the UK and USA, but truly my satisfactions till now have been met at Patna. Be it food, the surgery itself, or the people around here- you will not find better at this price, I tell you Dr. Ashish will not disappoint.” 75-year-old patient from London, United Kingdom

Both knees of a London-based British patient were simultaneously transplanted in Bihar using the finest robotic technology available at the “Anup Institute of Orthopaedics & Rehabilitation extension unit, located on the fifth floor of the Savera Hospital Campus in Kankarbagh, in Patna. This surgery marks the continuity of successful robotic joint transplants which have engaged global notice, within just 3 years of establishment and over 1000 joint transplants. This truly is a matter of pride for Bihar as it has become a site for medical tourism.

The 75-year-old patient from London suffered from osteoarthritis, a condition that disabled about 528 million people worldwide in 2019 according to the WHO.

Dr. Ashish Singh, the Medical Director of the extension unit at Anup Institute of Orthopaedics & Rehabilitation, provided detailed insights into robotic surgery for knee and hip replacements. When asked about his experience, the patient called it his “best decision” and remains satisfied above all his previous experiences in the UK and USA. The range of patients from countries includes England, Pakistan, Bhutan, Nepal, Bangladesh, and Afghanistan – due to the vision of the unit to help patients recover physically and mentally with the unit’s well-crafted hospitality.

As a result, the unit also has a grasp over numerous Indian states, including Guwahati, Dibrugarh, Tripura, Maharashtra, Mumbai, Delhi, Bangalore, Chhattisgarh, Nagpur, and Raipur who feel the metropolitan edge subtracting the endless waiting list, increasing doctor negligence at exorbitant prices in the big Indian and International cities.

The robotic system has reduced knee replacement surgeries from 3 to 4 hours to just 40 to 50 minutes and ensures the patient to stand on their feet within 4 to 5 hours after the procedure. With the best team of surgeons and machinery, seamless hospitality and the fastest recovery also comes the added advantage of being a budget-friendly hospital. Dr. Ashish highlights how the affordability at AIOR Super Speciality Unit surpasses all other institutions providing similar facilities by 40%.

The best part is, that one can avail robotic facilities at the cost of a normal surgery.

Previously, knee replacement surgery cost up to 2 lakh rupees, but now, thanks to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Jee initiative, it is a classes-friendly procedure and also holds a benefit for Ayushman Card Holders.

 Three weeks after surgery, 9 out of 10 patients are walking unassisted. 85% of patients return to their work within 6 weeks of surgery.

What is the difference?

They return to their normal lives, with a family (medical team) stationed at Bihar always ready to help them in their journey of recovery. The unit lives up to Dr. Ashish Singh’s mission to provide extra care at no extra cost.
