Aster Medcity, for the first time in Kerala, introduces Robotic Surgery with da Vinci Robot- a highly advanced surgical Robot that performs minimally invasive surgeries with utmost precision. What can be called the next level in surgery, the da Vinci Robot has multi-limbed surgical robot with tiny wrists that bend in all directions, offering precision, dexterity and fine manipulation beyond that of human hand. The Surgeon performs minimally invasive surgeries by manipulating three robotic arms and a video camera that are inserted through small skin incisions, while seated in front of a computer console with 3D video screen and controls. The option of Robotic surgery is available in the Urology, Cardiothoracic, Gynaecology, Oncology, Gastroenterology, Bariatric and Paediatric Surgery Departments at Aster Medcity.
A patient may require medicines urgently at the most unexpected times. That’s why Aster Medcity has 4 Pharmacies- Out Patient Pharmacy, Inpatient Pharmacy, Emergency Department Pharmacy and CoE Pharmacy, of which 2 are 24-hour facilities (Inpatient and Emergency Department). Accessible round the clock, these well-stocked pharmacies ensure that bystanders of the patient do not have to take the stress of having to find medicines during late hours and no delay is caused in treatment due to non-availability of medicines.
All Centres of Excellences also have Pneumatic Chute, which helps in quick delivery of medicines to patients, without having them go the pharmacy.
Aster Medcity, for the first time in India, introduces Robotic Pharmacy using ROWA Vmax – a state-of-the-art fully automated medication storage and dispensing unit that ensures quick and error-free dispensing of medicines. Capable of managing the inventory on its own and storing them at optimal temperature, this unit is can dispense thousands of medicines every day with utmost precision and speed, which means more safety and convenience for patients.
** Facility available only in the Out Patient Pharmacy. Functional from September 2014
