The Laparoscopic facilities at Altius Hospital are on par with International Standards with state-of-the-art Operation theatre being the highlight. Ramesh Hospital was amongst the first of the Hospitals in India to have an OR1 , the latest system for High Tech State of Art Laproscopic surgeries. OR1 comes with Stainless Steel cladding of the wall and roof for maintaining absolute sterile atmosphere.

All the equipment and monitors are suspended from the ceiling by pendent and cables, Gas connections to the equipments run through the pendent. The advantage of pendent system is saving floor space and concealing all the cables and connections. Pendent with the equipments can be moved 360 deg any where in the operation room. With OR1 it's now possible to control everything from Medical Devices, Lighting, Room, Cameras and Tele-conferencing from a Central Station inside or outside the sterile area with communication BUS system (SCB) and all the function can be monitored continuously.
