Cardiothoracic Surgery 973-926-3500

Cardiac surgeons have been performing robotic surgery for several years using the da Vinci® Surgical System, as an alternative for patients requiring certain open-heart procedures including mitral valve repair, atrial defect repair, and eventually for coronary bypass surgery.

As a minimally invasive alternative to tradition open-heart surgeries, in which surgeons had to create an incision in the patient’s chest, robotic surgery allows surgeons to operate through tiny holes without ever having to open the patient’s chest. This is beneficial to the patient who will spend less time in the hospital, experience less pain and recover faster.

Urological Surgery 973-926-3300

The advent of robotic surgery has opened the door to many exciting new possibilities for minimally invasive surgery for children. With the da Vinci System, the surgeon only needs to make small incisions, which translates into decreased blood loss, reduced postoperative pain and a quicker recovery from surgery. These benefits are so important for active children who are eager to get back to their normal daily routines. And, quicker recovery time means less time spent in the hospital following surgery, thereby reducing the stress levels for both the parent and child.
