The International Centre for Robotic Surgery (ICRS) offers patients the most advanced minimally invasive surgical approaches by utilising robotic assistance. Complex surgical procedures that would normally require large incisions can now be done through finger tip sized incisions. For most patients, robotically assisted surgery offers numerous benefits over the traditional open techniques including:
• Precise Surgery with Very Small Incisions •Less Trauma and Pain • Minimal Scarring
• Less Risk of Wound Infection • Fewer Blood Transfusions • Fewer Complications
• Shorter Hospital Stay • Much Faster Recovery • Quicker Return to Daily Activities
ICRS is led by Dr. Sudhir Srivastava, a world pioneer in Robotic Cardiothoracic Surgery, who has organised a group of some of the most talented and highly experienced robotic surgeons in the world. The combined robotic surgery experience of the World Class consulting team is in excess of 15,000 robotic surgical procedures. At ICRS, it is our mission to provide the highest standard of robotic surgical procedures to patients from India and abroad.
ICRS isthe first centre in India to offer most comprehensive and world class procedures at a lower cost. It offers the full spectrum of robotic cardiac, thoracic, urology, gynaecology, general, head, neck & orthopaedics surgery, to bring healthcare of International standards within the reach of every individual.
In 2011, ICRS collaborated with Fortis Healthcare to provide onsite surgical expertise to the Fortis network of hospitals. On Nov, 2nd 2011, the first robotic surgery centre was launched at Fortis Escorts Heart Institute, New Delhi. Fortis ICRS centres will be set up across Fortis hospitals in Mumbai, Gurgaon, Bangalore, Chennai, Kolkata as well as some tier II cities including Mohali and Jaipur. Fortis ICRS is a big step forward towards commitment to providing the latest in healthcare in terms of cutting-edge technology and best-in-class medical expertise. The centres will certainly set new paradigm in robotic surgery in India.
In 2012, ICRS collaborated with Asian Heart Institute ‘India’s Highest Accredited Hospital’ and ‘The Best Private Cardiac Hospital’( as per a CNBC and The Week survey done in 2011) to offer expertise and service in robotic cardiovascular surgery in Mumbai and Western India .
