Another testament to Manipal Hospital's success is the case of a 70-year-old man who had previously undergone surgery for a T-gen lumbar problem. The hospital successfully cured him through a thoracolumbar fusion procedure utilizing S2-ILEX screws, showcasing the versatility of robotic interventions.

Today, a press conference was organized, featuring Dr. S. Vidyadhara, Chairman and HOD of Spine Surgery and Consultant Robotic Spine Surgery at Manipal Hospital, Old Airport Road, Bangalore.
