Bhubaneswar: A team of spine surgeons of Kalinga Institute of Medical Sciences (KIMS) recently conducted what it claimed first-ever computer navigation spine surgery in Odisha.

“The computer navigation assisted spinal surgery will help in maintaining accuracy, time management, minimally invasive procedure and ultimately having lesser complications for the patients,” said senior consultant and orthopaedic and spine surgeon Dr Jitendra Kumar Rout at KIMS Super Speciality Hospital.

He added that surgeons need to use many pedicle screws to fix the spine and if manually done, it might lead to serious post-surgery complications leading to fatality.

Describing the process behind the computer navigation spine surgery, Dr Rout explained, “The process usually uses an intra-operative computer tomography (CT) scan technology and thus the operating team could monitor every step through a digital monitor and the navigational help ensures a better outcome for the team and ultimately for the patient. Be it cervical, lumbar, or any portion of the spinal cord, the computer navigation spine surgery can assist the surgeons in an error-free performance, and at KIMS we are looking for more such complicated procedures with this in the future and help patients in a better way.”

Dr Rout also mentioned renowned spine surgeon of India and mentor at KIMS Super Speciality Hospital Dr Shankar Acharya, for guidance in performing the surgery.

Facility Director KIMS Super Speciality and Cancer Centre Dr Shaktimaya Mohapatra said, “Computer navigation spine surgery gives KIMS an edge over others and it can be used in multiple surgical procedures to enable our teams to deliver better results for the patients.”

Founder, KIIT & KISS, Dr Achyuta Samanta thanked the team for performing a surgery with a new technique.
