And if you take a look at the Jaslok hospital doctors list you will know that the hospital houses some of the best doctors in the country.
To boost the outcome and to improve patient care the hospital has been launching various technologies. The hospital thrived on providing patient care with the help of latest technology. Since its inception 1973, the hospital has achieved varied technological milestones. Below we will be discussing all about the technologies that the hospital is equipped with to enhance its patient-centric approach.
Jaslok hospital Mumbai is all about how it improves its services so as to give the highest form of care to all its patients. Its robotic surgery department is another area where the hospital has been known. The team comprises of some of well-known gynecologists, onco-surgeons, urologists, general surgeon, cardiac surgeons & transplant surgeons, and pediatric surgeons. This surgery helps in laparoscopic surgery in a fine approach. This surgery enhances precision when complex procedure such as re-constructive surgery & cancer surgery in the abdomen & pelvis need to be carried out. Furthermore, it also reduces hospital stay, minimum blood loss and trauma to tissues.
Nuclear Medicine Department:
The hospital is said to be the first in India to get a triple head gamma camera and the first solid state dedicated cardiac camera in Asia. Also, a 5-ring 16-slice PET-CT scanner was also added to the department. The hospital has introduced various technologies in India. Some of them are:
- Brain perfusion imaging
- Dopamine transporter (DaT) imaging for Parkinson’s disease
- Somatostatin receptor PET-CT imaging in the Private sector
- Peptide receptor radionuclide therapy (PRRT)
Moreover, the department is among the 6th in the country which provides these services. This eliminated the need to travel all the way to Europe in order to avail these services saving cost and time. Additionally, the hospital also acquired the advanced 5-ring 16-slice PET-CT scanner and there is only 13 such machines in the world.

The hospital is among the first in South Asia’s to conduct MR guided ultrasound surgeries. Magnetic Resonance-guided focused Ultrasound Surgery (MRGFUs) is generally used to treat fibroids that may be found in Prostate, Kidney, Thyroid, Brain, Liver, Epilepsy and Uterine Fibroids. This surgeries are non-invasive in nature and is an alternative to traditional surgery and hormonal treatments.
Endobronchial ultrasound (EBUS):
This procedure helps visualize airway wall and structure close to it using ultrasound along with bronchoscope. The hospital is one of the best when it comes to EBUS which identify the spread of cancer into lymph nodes among cancer or other cancers, interventional pulmonology biopsies.
Such ultrasound can avoid the surgery which is often unnecessary.
