VELLORE – DEC 29, 2021 – The state-of-the-art super specialty ‘Naruvi Hospitals’ in Vellore joined a choice group of medical institutions in the country today, with the launch of a high-tech robot for performing Neurosurgery and a brand new Epilepsy Monitoring Unit (EMU) at its complex here.

Inaugurating “ROSA”, the Neurosurgical Robot installed at ‘Naruvi Hospitals’, Tamil Nadu Minister for Water Resources, Mr. Duraimurugan, said the new facility should be of great help for patients with precision surgeries to cure brain disorders in shorter time using the most advanced technology. 

Lauding the courage, vision and self-confidence with which Dr. G.V. Sampath has established the ‘Naruvi Hospitals’ here, Mr. Duraimurugan said, it was not easy to set up a hospital today. “You need guts for it,” he said turning to the ‘Naruvi Hospitals’ Founder and Chairman, Dr. G.V. Sampath. 

Emphasising that keeping pace with advancements in medicine and medical technology was  necessary in this fast changing modern world, Duraimurugan expressed the hope that ‘Naruvi Hospitals’ would scale greater heights in healthcare. 

Inaugurating the EMU at the hospital, State Minister for Handlooms and Textiles, Mr. R. Gandhi said, Dr. Sampath did with absolute dedication whatever tasks he took up. He congratulated the Chairman for having set up this hospital in Vellore with “great faith”, adding, the EMU will be a boon to Epilepsy patients. He expressed confidence that the facility would be put to optimum use in curing Epilepsy patients. 

Earlier, welcoming the dignitaries and participants at the inaugural function, the ‘Naruvi Hospitals’ Chairman, Dr. G.V. Sampath said, the 500-bed state-of-the-art hospital, set up with technical tie-up with Henry Ford Health Systems, USA, and equipped with entire range of diaognostic and treatment facilities for various diseases including Covid-19, has in a short span of time, proved to be a hospital providing effective and quality healthcare at affordable cost for people from the State and other parts of the country. 

Explaining the latest facilities installed now, Dr. Sampath said that ‘Naruvi Hospitals’ is only the third hospital in the country, after AIIMS hospital in Delhi and Amritha hospital in Kerala, to have installed this Robot for doing Neurosurgeries. 

He said Neurosurgeons usually took 12 hours to perform a brain surgery. Now aided by this Robot, brain surgeries could be done in six hours with precision, and without loss of blood. The affected parts of the brain can be treated with a biopsy needle without having to cut open the patient’s head, he elaborated. 

The new EMU, with help of latest technology, can fully cure Epilepsy, Dr. Sampath further explained. Using techniques like MRI scan and HD-EEG, we can detect which part of the body has been affected and cure Epilepsy, he said, adding, only ‘Naruvi Hospitals’ has this facility after AIIMS, Delhi, till date. The EMU would be of great help to the Epilepsy-affected. 

Vellore MP, Mr. D.M. Kathir Anand, district MLAs, P. Karthikeyan (Vellore), A.P. Nandakumar (Anaicut), J.L. Easwarappan (Arcot) and Gummidipoondi MLA, Govindaraj, were among those who participated in the function.
