Robotic joint replacement surgeon Dr. Thomas Coon from San Francisco will be the international guest speaker. The theme of the program would be “Precision Joint Replacement Surgery”. Experts in the field of different joint replacements, including navigation and robotics have been invited to present their vast experience. This event will offer a great opportunity for young surgeons to learn the latest trends and interact with the leading experts on joint replacement in the world.

The Vattikuti Foundation is a charitable organization known for its contributions in developing robotic surgery across the world, including India. Focus on the expanding field of Joint Replacement surgery in India is a new initiative of the Foundation, because we believe that India is poised to become a global leader in Orthopedic Robotic Surgery.

For years, the Vattikuti Foundation has supported the training of da Vinci robotic surgeons in India through its several educational programs such as the Robotic Surgeons Council of India meetings, national and international Fellowships, and Master Classes on cutting edge subjects. The Foundation also invests in surgical innovation. One such example is the development of Robotic Kidney Transplant Surgery With Regional Hypothermia, which was developed in India in collaboration with our international partners and has now become a standard of care in a large number of centers in Europe, India and United States.
