First Bariatric Surgery in Telangana using HugoTM RAS System | CARE Hospitals | Dr. Venugopal

CARE Hospitals, Banjara Hills Successfully Performs the First Bariatric Surgery in Telangana Using Hugo™ Robotic-Assisted Surgery System. The milestone procedure was performed by the expert clinical team of CARE Hospitals, which was led by Dr. Venugopal Pareek, Consultant—Gastrointestinal, Laparoscopic, and Bariatric Surgery—at the group’s flagship facility located at Banjara Hills in Hyderabad. The patient, a 26-year-old man named Ravikanth (name changed for privacy reasons), weighed 148 kilos before the surgery and was also suffering from morbid obesity, uncontrolled diabetes, and high blood pressure due to excessive weight. The robotic surgery was performed to remove a large part of the stomach, leaving behind a narrow tube-like pouch or sleeve. The patient had a successful post-operative recovery, and his comorbidities also seem to be returning to normal. This historic procedure is Asia Pacific's second sleeve gastrectomy performed with the Medtronic HugoTM RAS System. Commenting on the uses of this system, Dr. Venugopal Pareek, CARE Hospitals, Banjara Hills, who is a leading robotic bariatric surgeon and has hands-on experience in handling the HugoTM RAS system, said, "By bringing robot-assisted minimally invasive surgeries to a greater number of patients, the Hugo RAS system is improving the lives of people in many parts of the world." This robot gives the surgeons various benefits over other robots in surgeries, like increased accuracy and precision, a greater range of motion while performing delicate surgeries, and reduced surgical time and surgery complications. A range of soft-tissue procedures can also be performed on the system’s modular and multi-quadrant platform. "I hope that more patients can benefit from this system in our country." #CAREHospitals #TransformingHealthcare #weightloss #roboticsurgery #roboassistedsurgery To know more about Dr. Venugopal Pareek, visit https://www.carehospitals.com/doctor/-venugopal-pareek/483 CARE Hospitals Group is a multi-specialty healthcare provider operating 16 healthcare facilities serving 8 cities across 6 states in India.
