Telangana Governor urges insurers to include robotic surgeries in health insurance

Telangana Governor Dr Tamilisai Soundararajan has requested insurance companies to come forward and include all the robotic surgeries and approve them. Even the government insurance schemes should include the latest procedures in the approval list, Dr Soundararajan said while speaking after formally inaugurating the two-day and the first exclusive Conference on Gynaecological Robotic Surgeries RoboGynIndia-2022 organised in India.

Aiming at familiarizing surgeons and residents with the clinical application of the latest techniques in treating gynaecological disorders, the conference was jointly conducted by the Association of Gynecological Robotic Surgeons (AGRS), the national organization of surgeons practising the art of robotic gynaecological surgeries, along with Intuitive Surgical, a global technology leader in minimally invasive care and the pioneer of robotic-assisted surgery (RAS).

Dr Soundararajan while complimenting Chief Gynecologist Dr Rooma Sinha, Organizing Chairperson and Founder President, AGRS, for her exemplary services in this field, said that in our country it is expected that whatever latest and highest technology is introduced it has to be patient-oriented and even if there is a small complication, it would be difficult to use it for the next patient because of the bad word it earned.
