Karachi: Jinnah Post Graduate Medical Center (JPMC) has achieved a significant milestone by successfully conducting its first-ever robotic surgery.
JPMC spokesperson Jahangir Durrani confirmed that a 34-year-old patient underwent the cutting-edge gallstone surgery with the aid of the latest robotic technology.
A highly-competent surgical team led by Dr. Saddam and Dr. Mansab carried out the procedure under the guidance of Jinnah Hospital’s Executive Director, Prof Dr. Shahid Rasool, completing it in a mere 25 minutes.
Robotic surgery is considered a minimally invasive and less painful alternative for lower abdomen procedures, offering patients the potential for quicker recovery.
