Pune: Ruby Hall Clinic recently announced the launch of Pune’s first robotically controlled ultrasonic imaging device - the Hitachi Aloka Arietta S60. The demand for diagnostic ultrasound examinations in healthcare areas such as advanced acute treatment, chronic and community care is increasing. Ultrasound equipment has become physically smaller, generates less heat and is more power efficient and enhancement in image quality.

The ultrasonic device was donated by Baba Kalyani, Chairman and Managing Director, Bharat Forge on the occasion of his 70th birthday.

The event saw the presence of Ruby Hall Clinic CEO Bhomi Bhote; Ruby Hall Clinic COO Dr Kishor Pujari, Grant Medical Foundation Trustee and Chairman Dr Purvez Grant and Ruby Hall Clinic Medical Services Director Dr Sanjay Pathare.
 
Also present were Ruby Hall Clinic Rupa Rahul Bajaj Centre of Excellence in Robotic Surgery Chief Robotic Surgeon Dr Himesh Gandhi and Ruby Hall Clinic Laboratory Infection Control and Quality Director Dr Nita Munshi.

Speaking on the occasion, Dr Himesh Gandhi said  offering real-time imaging that provides valuable information necessary to assist in surgical planning, this device marks a new era in curing robotic kidney cancer cases.

“Ruby Hall Clinic now becomes the fifth hospital in India to have acquired this device. With this machine, ultrasound images will be available with higher resolution, allowing surgeons to see much clearer definition. This machine provides valuable information to guide tumour resections, the ability to visualise and account for blood flow. Ultimately, it will give us, as clinicians, improved diagnostic confidence particularly in difficult cases. This in turn will ensure that surgeries are done in a precise and accurate manner with minimal blood loss allowing patients to recover faster,” said Gandhi.

Dr Kishor Pujari added that the one thing all surgery patients hope for is a painless experience, with no complications and a quick return to their normal way of life.

“This is exactly what the new machine offers. This minimally invasive device assists the robot to ensure smaller incisions, which means less blood loss, less pain, and fewer complications, all resulting in faster recoveries,” said Dr Pujari.
