One of our leading doctors Dr Aashay Ketkatpure and his team had the distinguished privilege to have performed the shoulder surgery using the Arthroscopic TrasOsseous Rotator Cuff Repair (ATOS) technique for the first time in Central India at the Shalinitai Meghe Super Speciality Centre run by Acharya Vinobha Bhave Rural Hospital (AVBRH), Sawangi (Meghe) in Wardha district.
The patient was a 52 year old individual who was complaining of chronic shoulder pain and doctors had diagnosed that he was suffering from Shoulder Cuff Tear, something which is difficult to treat. In regular arthroscopic shoulder surgery, usually the surgeon has to use anchors which cases cyst formation in the humeral head in long term resulting in loss of repair and other issues related to head osetolysis. With ATOS, the rotator cuff repair can be done arthroscopically without using any anchors. Leading doctor of Apex Clinic Dr. Aashay Kekatpure from the Jawaharlal Nehru Medical College, Wardha and his team had implemented the efficient surgical technique – ATOS, which treats the large and massive rotator cuff tears with great precision and care.
