MGMGH opens combined therapy for autism patients

Quote:
Claiming to be the first-of-its-kind effort to provide treatment for autism patients through Indian medicine system in the government sector in the state, a combined treatment section for children with autism began functioning at the office of the district siddha medical officer here on Thursday.

The new facility was inaugurated by district collector K Rajamani at the district siddha block inside Mahatma Gandhi memorial government hospital (MGMGH).

Autism, a neuro-biological pervasive developmental disorder occurring in early childhood, impairs the ability of the children to communicate with others due to lack of coordination between the mind and brain. With many patients relying only on allopathic treatment coupled with physiotherapy, the department of Indian medicine and homeopathy of the state government decided to try the treatment methods available in the text books of Indian medicine to treat the autism patients.

“The combined treatment of AYUSH will provide the basic training and best care to the affected children free of cost and improve their lifestyle,” said district collector Rajamani. Both internal medication and external therapy will be given to the children through the four branches – Siddha, Ayurvedha, Yoga and Naturopathy and Homeopathy in a combined manner.

A team of doctors – Siddha physicians Dr Sabarinathan and Dr Vathsala, Ayurvedha physicians Dr Merlin Dora and Dr Selvakumar, Yoga and Naturopathy physicians Dr Isai Amudhu and Dr Helen as well as homeopathy physician Dr Saratha — will examine the patients.

The treatment method has been classified into two – the first one lasting 21 days with internal medication and the next 21 days with external medication.

“Our medicine system has treatment for autism. But we are trying it for the first time in the government sector in the state. Initially, the autism patients will receive treatment from any one of the methods. The progress of the patient will be monitored. If the patient requires the treatment in another method, it will be given. Ultimately, there would be great improvement in the patient’s activity,” said district siddha medical officer Dr S Kamaraj.

As of now, the Indian medicine department in Trichy has rolled out the treatment method for autism with the available medicine. However, it required much support from the state government to give a thrust to the alternative way of approach to treat such disorders. The patients can visit the centre on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday where the doctors will attend to them from 8 am to 12 pm and 3 pm to 05 pm.

Roving Surgical Bot: da Vinci Robot to visit Trichy

Robotic Surgery in progress with a da Vinci Surgical Robot

Quote:
In an effort to familiarise surgeons and hospital administrators in Trichy and Madurai with computer-assisted surgeries, the da Vinci surgical robot will drive into these cities on September 11 for a live demo.

Robotic Surgeries, where a robot assists the surgeon, scores over conventional surgery by minimising blood loss, dramatically reducing post-operative recovery time, and bringing precision in executing the procedure, thus saving healthy tissue from damage.

Tamil Nadu already boasts of two surgical robots in Coimbatore and one in Chennai. The roving robot’s visit to Trichy and Madurai is a part of the 20 city tour of the da Vinci Surgical robot.

It has already visited Dehradun, Rishikesh, Bhopal, Indore, Raipur, Bhubaneswar, Cuttack, Visakhapatnam, Rajahmundry, Vijayawada and Tirupati in the last 10 weeks.

The ‘Roving Robot’ project has been instituted by Vattikuti Technologies, distributor of da Vinci Surgical Robots and Vattikuti Foundation, evangelist for robotic surgery and Intuitive Surgical Inc., USA, makers of da Vinci Robot. “A 3-dimensional high definition vision system and 10 times magnification gives the surgeons to work with tiny wristed instruments that bend and rotate far greater than the human hand enabling superior outcomes, quick recovery and much shorter hospital stays,” says Gopal Chakravarthy, CEO, Vattikuti Technologies.

A da Vinci surgical robot brings in human wrist-like movement with its instruments and offers a 10 times enlarged 3-dimensional view. And that is exactly what a tour of a da Vinci surgical robot across India is trying to demonstrate. Surgeons in the two cities will get a first-hand look at how a surgical robot works and understand the situations in which its benefits unfold.

The da Vinci ‘Roving Robot’ will be available to surgeons, doctors and hospital administrators in Trichy (at Kauvery Hospital Sep 11-13) and Madurai (Vadamalayan Hospital Sep 15-16 and Meenakshi Hospital Sep 18-20).

With multi-disciplinary robotic surgery proving its efficacy in India in the last 6 years, the road show’s goal is to highlight computer-assisted surgeries ability to vanquish various forms of cancers, particularly in the medical disciplines of Urology, Gynaecology, Thoracic, Gastro-intestinal and Head & Neck.

Vattikuti Technologies, Vattikuti Foundation and Intuitive Surgical Inc. have an ambitious plan to spread the use of Robotic surgery in India. Vattikuti Technologies has partnered with scores of hospitals in India since 2011 in drawing a roadmap for success of the robotic program as well as supporting training of surgeons. So far, the number of da Vinci Surgical robots in India stands at 51 installations, manned by 275 trained robotic surgeons in 47 hospitals in 20 cities.

Eminent robotic surgeons--Dr Ajit Pai, Surgical Oncologist, Apollo hospital, Chennai and Dr Srivatsa Narasimha, Uro-Oncologist, HCG, Bengaluru--would share their experiences as Robotic Surgeons at a special interactive session with surgeons, physicians and hospital administrators from Madurai and neighbouring towns on Wednesday, September 20.

As cancer spreads relentlessly across India, with 15 lakh new cancer cases every year according to the National Cancer Registry, computer-assisted surgery will help in fighting it aggressively and effectively.

Surgical Robots to become more accessible to hospitals in non-metros

To address the scarcity of trained surgeons and the cost of computer assisted procedures and equipment Vattikuti Technologies and Intuitive Surgical Inc. USA and Vattikuti Foundation is showcasing the technology by mounting the surgical robot on a mobile vehicle to simulate an operation theatre setting as it educates doctors and surgeons about the benefits.

Vattikuti Technologies and Surgical Robot makers Intuitive Surgical Inc., USA will offer hospitals the da Vinci Robot along with instruments required for the next three years at a special price point.

“The 4-armed Roving Robot will help surgeons in smaller towns experience the capabilities of a da Vinci Surgical Robot in removing affected tissue while retaining healthy tissue,” says Gopal Chakravarthy, CEO, Vattikuti Technologies.

The da Vinci surgical system enables surgeons to operate minimally invasively through a few small incisions while controlling the robotic instruments from a nearby console. It allows surgeons to operate with enhanced vision and precision.About Vattikuti Technologies

Vattikuti Technologies has been making available da Vinci Robotic Surgery System from Intuitive Surgical Inc., USA. The da Vinci Surgery is considered the gold standard in minimally invasive surgery.

In 2016, over 750,000 procedures were performed worldwide using over 4000 da Vinci robotic surgical systems world-wide. The da Vinci system has brought about a paradigm shift by making it possible to have almost all complex procedures done with minimal access. Over 4 million da Vinci procedures have been carried out so far.

Since 2011 Vattikuti Technologies has partnered with several hospitals in drawing a roadmap for success of the robotic program as well as supporting training of surgeons besides ensuring high uptime for the system through its trained clinical support and service team.

Large corporate hospitals such as Apollo, Aster, Fortis, HCG, Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani, Max, Medanta, Sterling and Zydus; Government hospitals such as AIIMS, Army Research & Referral Hospital and Delhi State Cancer Institute (all in Delhi), PGI (Chandigarh) and Kidwai Memorial Institute of Oncology (Bengaluru) and Trust hospitals such as Tata Memorial, Mumbai; Amrita Institute, Kochi; Sir Ganga Ram Hospital, Rajiv Gandhi Cancer Institute are using the da Vinci Surgical Robots.
