Bengaluru, December 13, 2020:Sakra World Hospital is one of the leading healthcare providers in Bengaluru and India’s first FDI hospital to bring the country's one of its kind healthcare breakthrough - CUVIS Joint.  It is an advanced robotic knee replacement technology that is set to allow orthopaedic doctors to plan the knee replacement days before they enter the operation theatre to actually perform the procedure. CUVIS Joint is the world's first fully active robotic knee replacement system which allows Sakra World Hospital orthopaedic surgeons to perform knee replacement surgeries more perfectly and hassle-free and comes as bliss for those suffering from dreadful arthritis. CUVIS Joint is manufactured by a South Korean agency, Curexo and marketed and sold by Meril Healthcare in India. CUVIS Joint is known for its unique and autonomous nature of functioning and was inaugurated by BS Yediyurappa, Hon’ble Chief Minister of Karnataka and Dr. Shivaraj Kumar, a famous Kannada film actor. 


Sakra World has one of the best teams of orthopedic doctors and best knee replacement surgeon in Bangalore, who are highly specialized in partial knee replacement, bilateral knee replacement, unilateral knee replacement, total knee replacement and robotic knee surgery in Bangalore.

Expressing his delight at the Inauguration of CUVIS Joint, BS Yediyurappa, Hon’ble Chief Minister of Karnataka, said, “I am happy to see that this new advanced robotic technology has been brought for the first time to India to help in the treatment of people suffering from severe arthritis. I congratulate Sakra World Hospital and Dr. Chandrashekar P on acquiring this technology and wish them good luck. I am sure that this will help the people in India and abroad, especially during the pandemic and social distancing. The minimal human intervention will make it a win-win situation for both the patients and doctors.”

Explaining how CUVIS Joint can transform knee replacement surgeries, Dr. Chandrasekhar P, Senior Consultant & Head – Department of Orthopaedics at Sakra World Hospital with an experience of performing 5,000 successful knee replacement surgeries and one of the key global opinion leaders behind the development of CUVIS fully active robotic system said, "While using this robotic knee replacement technology, we first conduct a CT scan prior the surgery. The images taken from the CT scan are uploaded in the robotic software. The surgeon using the software creates the 3D anatomy of the patient's knee joint and creates the surgical plan that shows how the implantable knee would look from front to front, side to side, and oblique direction. Even before the surgery begins, the planning is done. Once the orthopedic surgeon enters the operation theatre, the CT scans are already uploaded in the robotic software so the surgery can be performed smoothly. This software allows three-stage planning: pre-operative plan, plan during the procedure and the last is the post-operative plan which shows if the knee replacement surgery has been done as per the plan and whether the same anatomy has been achieved and performed perfectly."

Echoing Dr. Chandrashekhar’s words, Mr. Takashi Maki, Managing Director at Sakra World Hospital shared, “The impeccable precision of CUVIS Joint walks hand in hand with uncompromising dedication and flawless care and service offered by Sakra World Hospital. Inspired by the Japanese values and cutting-edge Japanese technology, Sakra has always lived up to spearheading technological advancements in global and Indian healthcare. With CUVIS Joint, we hope to offer optimum clinical outcome and garner maximum patient satisfaction."

The fully active nature of CUVIS Joint helps in performing knee joint replacement surgeries in an exceptional manner requiring the minimum human intervention. In addition to the maximum accuracy, precision, and flexibility on offer, it has features for high safety as well. CT-Scan images are used to create the patient-specific 3D bone models and do the virtual simulation of joint replacement surgeries personalized for each patient. With sub-millimetre dimensional accuracy, it helps to get excellent post-surgery outcomes for joint replacement. The benefits that this avant-garde robotic technology brings include lesser tissue trauma and associated blood loss, quick recovery, early discharge from the hospital and the best possible implant positioning with maximum cutting accuracy. Alongside, it promises to redefine the lives of acute arthritis patients and give them an active and healthy life like never before. 

Manish Deshmukh, Head of Marketing and Technical at Meril Healthcare Pvt Ltd shared, "He had always loved superhero med-tech stuff. From saw cutting to automatic milling, we have always enhanced by giving more to life. We, at Meril, are really looking forward to adding this new dimension of technological advancement in the field of joint replacement and achieving new heights with our impeccable association with Sakra World Hospital and Dr. Chandrashekar P."
