Mumbai: At the June 11 alumni meet of Vattikuti Foundation 42 fellows from 18 locations across India will share their experiences of conducting path breaking robotic procedures at Mumbai from Head & Neck, Gastro-enterology, General Surgery, Urology, Gynaecology, Colorectal soft tissue surgeries as well as joint replacement surgeries.

The Michigan-based robotic surgery evangelist Vattikuti Foundation has provided 51 young Indian surgeons year-long Fellowships to study robotic surgery under the guidance of mentor Surgeons.

India has a need for a huge pool of orthopaedic surgery super specialists who can handle the special needs of over 10 million children with physical deformities. Specialist orthopaedic surgeons who can treat limb and spine problems can provide a better quality of life to afflicted children who form a startling 2.2 per cent of India’s young from newborns to 18-year-olds. This is an estimated 500 million children.

India has approximately 100 paediatric orthopaedic surgeons which translates to a caseload of 5 million cases per surgeon according to Dr Ashok K Johari, eminent paediatric orthopaedic surgeon who is also the President of the International Federation of Paediatric Societies.

It is well known that if congenital deformities are corrected early, a child can be given the chance to live a better life. It is easier to conduct surgeries on a child by modifying the growth of the affected part, adds Dr Johari.

A pioneer in his field, Dr Johari will be in conversation with well-known urology surgeon Dr Mahendra Bhandari, CEO, Robotic Surgery evangelist organisation, Vattikuti Foundation, on June 11, 2023 at Mumbai following a keynote address.
