The Honorable Chief Minister of Kerala, Sri. Oommen Chandy, inaugurated the Amrita Advanced Center for Robotic Surgery on March 02, 2015 at Amrita Institute of Medical Sciences. “Ten years ago Amrita Hospital had created history by performing the first ever liver transplant in the state of Kerala. Today by establishing the Amrita Advanced Center for Robotic Surgery, Amrita Hospital is initiating yet another revolution in the health care sector of Kerala,” the chief minister said. “Today as our expert doctors are supported by the most modern surgical equipment, there is no need for anybody to go abroad to avail advanced surgical treatments,” he added. He offered full state support to Mata Amritanandamayi Math in its entire endeavour to bring treatment facilities of international standards to the state. As developmental activities for health care is the need of the hour, the government gives high priority to this sector and, therefore, he congratulated the management of Amrita Hospital for its endeavour to bring the most modern treatment modalities to Kerala. “Modern science talks about the energy which pervades the entire cosmos. The same is poetically depicted by ancient rishis of Bharath as cosmic dance of Nataraja. Human beings refuse to be obedient robots of the Divine and that is the source of all problems we face today. But the surgical robots we inaugurated here today perfectly follow the commands of the surgeon and hence they have the potential to alleviate the suffering of the sick,” observed Swamiji Purnamritananda Puri, General Secretary, Mata Amritanandamayi Math, in his benedictory address. “With the help of the most modern equipment like robots doctors are able to deliver treatments almost error free,” observed the Minister for Fisheries, Ports and Excise, Kerala State, Sri K Babu in his felicitation. Amrita School of Medicine which was the first self financing medical college in the private sector has already recorded a phenomenal growth in a short span of time and this is going to be another memorable milestone in its history,” he added. “The contribution of Amrita Hospital in providing modern treatment facilities at affordable cost even to the common man is highly appreciable. When I organized free medical camps like “Soukhyam” in Ernakulam, the full-fledged support of Amrita Hospital proves the commitment of this hospital to serve the common man,” remarked Sri. Hibi Eden, MLA. “The robot does not allow the surgeons to make any mistake and thus the precision and accuracy of complicated surgical procedures are rendered near perfect,” said Dr. Prem Nair, Medical Director, Amrita Institute of Medical Sciences, in his welcome address. “Amrita uses Robotic Surgical Assistant (ROSA) to perform various brain surgeries and da Vinci Robotic System to perform gynaecological, urological and gastrointestinal surgical procedures. In the near future all major surgeries will be done with the support of robotic technology and this will completely revolutionize the outcome of surgical procedures. Amrita is committed to provide high quality affordable care to all the needy,” he added. Dr. Sanjeev Singh, Medical Superintendent, Amrita Institute of Medical Sciences, expressed the vote of thanks.
