L&T Expects 50% of all Surgeries to be Robot-Assisted by 2025

50% of all surgeries will be robot-assisted by 2025, says infrastructure and engineering conglomerate Larsen & Toubro (L&T)

Infrastructure and engineering conglomerate Larsen & Toubro (L&T) expects almost 50 per cent of all surgeries to be robot-assisted by 2025, as Artificial Intelligence (AI) makes robots precise enough to facilitate complex surgeries, the company said on Monday.

The L&T Technology Services Limited (LTTS) organised an ‘Experience Walk-through’ as part of a symposium on advancement in robot-assisted surgery to enable participants to get hands-on experience with cutting-edge products and solutions in the medical and medical equipment field.

Experts in the field including Professor Kesh Kesavadas from University of Illinois and the inventor of RoSS Robotic Surgery Simulator, the world’s first stand-alone training system for da Vinci surgical system, and Dr. Ramalingam, from PSG Institute of Medical Science and Research, Coimbatore, expect the percentage of robot-assisted surgeries to jump to 50 per cent by 2025 from around 10 per cent today.

“Training surgeons to become proficient in the use of robots is a major challenge in India. Innovative low-cost training systems such as the Endo-Training kit and new VR/AR based training simulators such as RoSS promises to address the needs of the fast-growing clinical robotic sector,” said Professor Kesh Kesavadas of the University of Illinois in the US.

The symposium was dedicated to discussing the possibilities and advancements in the field of Medical Robotics.

“Technological disruption is transforming the development process across markets, promoting new levels of efficiency and creativity in manufacture of healthcare products,” Abhishek Sinha, COO and Member of the Board at L&T Technology Services, said in a statement.
