Apollo Health City, pioneers the state-of-the-art Robot-assisted Angioplasty, in the combined Telugu states!

Hyderabad, September 23rd, 2022: Apollo Health City, Hyderabad, has pioneered the state-of-the-art Robot-assisted Angioplasty system in the combined Telugu states of Telangana and Andhra Pradesh, by launching this next generation cardiac care service at its hospital at Jubilee Hills, today. Robot assisted interventional procedures bring a paradigm shift in interventional cardiology in this part of the country by laying special thrust on precision care and speedy recovery, which immensely benefits the patient, while easing the occasional human errors.

Apollo Health City, Hyderabad, is acclaimed for over three decades for its breakthrough procedures. Several of these innovations published in reputed national and international journals, were acknowledged and commended by the medical fraternity world over. Having excelled in the field of coronary interventions with a significant volume of CHIP interventions, the Hospital is foraying into robot-assisted angioplasty procedure, for the first time in the states of Telangana and Andhra Pradesh.

“Robotic assisted coronary intervention carries a lot of potential as it promises a level of precision of stent placement which only high experienced cardiologists are capable of and it also reduces radiation exposure for both patient and clinician. I am happy to share that this is yet another step forward in terms of patient-centric medical innovation” says Dr. Sangita Reddy, Joint Managing Director, Apollo Hospitals Group.

Coronary angioplasty is a procedure performed to clear blocks in the arteries of the heart and restore blood flow. With the introduction of robotics in the field, this intervention will now be performed using a set of joysticks and a touchscreen, that serves as an extension to the cardiologist’s hands. This enables the expert cardiologists to have incredible technical benefits like better procedural control, more accurate lesion length calculations, enhanced visualisation, precision in stent placement and reductions in radiation exposure. Robot-assisted angioplasty represents the dawn of a new era in interventional cardiology. This novel treatment procedure paves the way for greater precision in clearing the blocks and placing the stents, thus enhancing the already stupendous success rate of Apollo Health City, Hyderabad.

Robot-assisted angioplasty enables standardisation of the angioplasty procedure besides bringing greater precision and reduced exposure to radiation during the procedure. All this means shorter procedure time, less exposure to radiation, better outcomes, greater comfort, speedy recovery and lesser duration of hospital stay for patients. Till date we have performed 15 robotic assisted angioplasties successfully out of which 1 left main stenting, 1 venous graft angioplasty & 5 double vessel angioplasties without any complications, says Dr P.C. Rath, Senior Consultant and Director, Interventional Cardiology, Apollo Hospitals, Jubilee Hills.
