Stealth Autoguide Cranial Robotic Guidance Platform

Dr. Manas Kumar Panigrahi, Monday, August 23, 2021

KIMS Hospitals, Secunderabad is the first Hospital in India to perform cranial procedures using the Stealth Autoguide Robotic Guidance platform. 


What is Stealth Autoguide Robotic Guidance platform? 

Stealth Autoguide cranial robotic guidance platform provides stereotactic positioning

and trajectory guidance for cranial procedures for consistent, repeatable, and accurate alignment to procedural plans.


Why Cranial Robotics and how does it work?

Planning is crucial in cranial procedures due to interconnected complex tissue structures. Hospitals and surgeons across India have been using image-guided advanced computerized technology to plan and navigate during a surgery. However, there is room to improve accurate execution of the plan and this is where robotics come in. Use of cranial robotic systems can:

  • Improve accuracy in surgery
  • Increase the diagnostic yield in biopsies
  • Reduce the positioning time in surgeries
  • Reduce the size of the incision

A Robotic guidance platform like Stealth Autoguide works in tandem with StealthStationTM navigation technology and Midas Rex drill technology to facilitate trajectory accuracy and continuous real-time position tracking. It enables the surgeon to confidently execute their plan with higher accuracy. As a result, the surgeon can complete the crucial steps in cranial surgeries with smaller incision, lesser time and yet achieve higher accuracy.


Stealth Autoguide  at KIMS Hospitals

Since the last few months, we at KIMS Hospitals, Secunderabad have started performing cranial surgeries with Stealth Autoguide for suitable patients. We have achieved excellent clinical outcomes in biopsy, sEEG for epilepsy, deep-seated tumor resection and shunt placement. We are now fully geared up to offer the benefit of Robotic guidance platform to more number of suitable patients.
