We believe that in order to bring the best outcome for the patient is by using technology as an important tool. Since KPJ Tawakkal Specialist Hospital been recognised in Orthopaedic Care, we take pride in having set-up the first Digital Operating Theatre with dedicated Navigation System in Malaysia.
Digital Operating Theatre that provides the latest technology for our consultants to improve their surgical techniques, outcomes and patient safety. It encompassing the audio-video, communication and information technology, offering the patients and consultants the very best, and the latest in surgical digital technology.
The computer-assisted Knee Navigation System functions like a surgical compass which will help to significantly improve the outcome of Orthopaedic surgeries. The dedicated system that helps achieve a breakthrough in the field of Orthopaedic surgery.
Through Knee Navigation System, Dr G RuslanNazaruddin, our Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon is managed to introduce the latest minimally invasive surgery for the total hip replacement called AMIS that stand for Anterior Minimalist Invasive Surgery for Total Hip Replacement.
The first Anterior Minimally Invasive Surgery (AMIS) for total hip replacement in Malaysia was done in 2015 by Dr G RuslanNazaruddin. He is certified to teach AMIS and has also served as the President and Arthroplasty Chief of Malaysian Orthopaedic Association. The benefits of AMIS are smaller skin scar, lesser blood loss with shorter surgical type, decrease postoperative pain, faster rehabilitation, reduced risk of dislocation, prevention of limping, decreased the incidence of complications leading to better treatment outcome.
The AMIS procedure is eligible for patients who do not have much bone defect, for patients who are diagnosed with primary osteoarthritis and for those who are non-osteoporotic.
SMALLER SKIN SCAR
The skin incision is often shorter than the current conventional surgery.
REDUCE BLOOD LOSS
Since no muscles are cut, it potentially reduces blood loss and transfusions are rare as well as potential blood clots (deep venous thrombosis) is less likely.
DECREASES POST-OPERATIVE PAIN
Again, due to the technique used where no muscles are cut.
The potential to reduce the duration of the hospital stay is good, as the approach does not cut the muscles, fundamental for fast recovery.
Enables the patient to return to daily activities quicker.
REDUCES THE RISK OF DISLOCATION
The preservation of muscles significantly improves the stability of the hip and thus minimises the risk of dislocation and post-operative limitation of movements.
The surgical technique which minimises muscle and nerve damage reduces the chances of limping.
DECREASES THE INCIDENCE OF COMPLICATIONS
The sum of all the above potential benefits as compared to the conventional techniques.
