Ortho & Spine Robotic Surgery

Our Services


Amala Ortho & Spine robotic surgery department opened its doors on May 2024 as a solution to all orthopedic spine procedures. Ortho & Spine robotic surgery department is a specialized department within a medical facility that utilizes leveraging robotic technology to enhance surgical precision and outcomes,and patient satisfaction. The cornerstone of the department is the Mako robotic surgical system. This system combines advanced 3D imaging with robotic guidance to assist surgeons in performing spine surgeries with unparalleled precision. Highly skilled orthopedic surgeons with specialized training in robotic-assisted spine surgery lead the department. The surgeons are proficient in utilizing the Mako system to its fullest potential, ensuring optimal patient outcomes. Ortho Spine department at AIMS is located parallel with Department of Orthopaedics (Ground floor of Chavara Block). Stryker's Mako System, the world's best Ortho-Spine robotic system, which was only available abroad and in a few hospitals in Kerala. It is first of its kind in a private medical college in North Kerala to perform complex ortho-spine surgeries with ease.
