The Post 90’s era has witnessed growth not only in the field of technology ,IT but also tremendous improvements in the field of healthcare ,by leveraging technology as the key backbone
Gone are the days of the innumerable health issues ,left untreated or cures that was unheard of . Technology has brought in a revolution that has understood the mechanisms and anatomy of the body better than ever before . Technology has leveraged us , to explore deep inside the tissues, skins, organs upto cell level to understand where the health disorder is arising and a painless laser surgery fixes it minutes and the patient can walk back home without a foot astray
However they key pivotal point in the whole healthcare initiative is increase in awareness, preventive checks and change in the lifestyle altogether ,everything from working styles, diets, daily routines and measure of phyiscal activities . Corporates, especially in the IT & Manufacturing sector has risen up to battle the evils of an imbalanced lifestyle of their employees and ensure full involvement of their staffs in frequent full body health checkups, yoga & Zumba classes in the weeekends , adherence to strict diet schedules and the likes. A few companies has gone the next step in healthcare initiative , by giving their employees a pedometer kit , to track the no of steps they walk everyday and track them everyday in the systems .
Technology has armorized ( or actually provided miracle weapons) that can heal any almost any health disorder and disease with cutting edge tools ,which was unheard of in the past.
Some of them include
- Stem Cell Transplant :
- Robotic Surgery that includes
- Total Endoscopic Coronary Artery Bypass
- Single Vessel / Multi vessel Small Thoracotomy
The list is endless …
These cutting edge instruments has given a fresh lease of life to several millions of people across the globe . In some extreme cases, where the entire face of a victim was burned down due to an acid attack was restored completely using complex skin grafting and cosmetic surgeries . In some other cases, where people who were born with deformities in the face and other parts of the body, were touched by the “hands of God” or in other words, these medical equipments , and ensured return to complete normalcy in just a few days time
One key “Global” hospital that I know personally who has pioneered in research and using advanced technical instruments in their treatments is Apollo Hospital. They specialise in almost every field of medical treatment, be it the heart or the eyes or a deadly cancer
One such life saving technological marvel ,is the Cyberknife Robotic Radio Surgery System. To quote exactly from them , “its a robotic radiosurgery system designed to treat tumors anywhere in the body with sub-millimeter accuracy” . This otherwise inoperable to treat deadly life threatening disease is now in strong hands of Apollo who can safely bet in curing it completely
However to conclude , healthcare not only aids in post operative treatments, but also illustrates the importance of a fine health ,with right amount of exercise , a proper dietary plan , a non sedentary lifestyle and frequent health checkups to ensure a healthy and happy life
