Dear Reader,

The introduction of advanced technologies in healthcare, effectively adopted in a wide range of medical procedures, is one of the best ways to achieve unmatched precision. Enhanced precision, vision, dexterity and control enables surgeons to perform a variety of delicate and complex surgical procedures and bring forth safer and favourable results. BLK Super Speciality Hospital is proud to present the highly advanced Robotic system and offer our patients the benefits of this technology. It is also a privilege for us to have one of the most experienced surgeon in the field of Robotics, Dr. Surender Dabas, leading our Robotic Surgical Oncology program. Since the launch of the program, the Robotic Surgery team has already performed more than 20 Robotic surgeries including the case we have featured as the cover story of this month's Pulse edition.

For the cover story, we have this interesting case of a 77-year-old patient with poorly differentiated Adenocarcinoma of the stomach for which he underwent a Robotic Total Gastrectomy and Rouxen-Y Esophagojejunostomy at BLK Super Speciality Hospital. This edition also includes, among other stories, the intriguing case of a 64-year-old man with facial swelling who regained his normal facial symmetry after a successful maxillectomy with reconstruction. There is also a case where a 51-yearold man with a history of recurrent left shoulder dislocation got a lasting solution after receiving a successful Arthroscopic Revision Bankart Repair with Remplissage at BLK.

You will also find the story of 32-year-old patient with distension of the abdomen, suffering from jaundice, who after a successful Liver Transplant is now leading a healthy life, thanks to the expert interventions of our doctors at Nanavati, Mumbai. On the informative piece front, there is one on how Spinal Cord Stimulators are helping patients suffering from pains of the neuropathic origin by masking the pain signals before reaching the brain and another one on Tuberculosis of the Lymph Node. You will also like the piece on the advances in the field of Uro-oncology; how newer and more advanced techniques and technologies are adopted to offer enhanced results.

I would like to share my sincere gratitude with the supporters and contributors of this newsletter. Your continued support has been of valuable motivation for us, and we hope to receive the same in days to come.
