Jaipur (Rajasthan): Sawai Man Singh Hospital has launched a dedicated operation theater for bone and soft tissue tumor surgery, starting Wednesday.

During the inauguration, Dr. Deepak Maheshwari, Principal of SMS Medical College, stated that the Orthopedic Oncology Clinic was established in 2017, which led to the introduction of various surgeries such as extra-corporeal radiotherapy and replantation, liquid nitrogen, and total femur replacement. However, the lack of a dedicated operation theater posed a challenge.

Dr. RC Bansal, Head of the Department, explained that the dedicated operation theater will enable prompt treatment for bone cancer patients and facilitate the development of a new super-specialty in Orthopedics. Dr. Sushil Bhati, Hospital Superintendent, added that this type of surgery is only available in Rajasthan at this hospital, which is why there was a rush of patients. Now, they will get relief.
