Newark Beth Israel Medical Center (NBIMC) robotic surgeons, specialists
in fertility, general surgery, thoracic surgery, gynecology, gynecologic
oncology, urogynecology and urology (adult and pediatric), perform the
broadest range of robotic surgeries and are the most experienced in the
northern New Jersey region. NBIMC, located in Newark, Essex County's
largest city, is the only full service single site robotic surgery facility
in New Jersey. Robotic single site cholecystectomy (gallbladder removal)
provides patients potentially quicker recovery and minimal scarring with
no incision of the abdomen.
Our Newark, New Jersey hospital's robotic surgery program has been
in the forefront of innovation and training for over a decade. A leader
in advanced urologic robotic surgery, New Jersey's 1st robotic partial nephrectomy was performed at Newark Beth Israel Medical
Center. Since 2003, our cardiac surgeons have been using robotic surgery
as an alternative to certain cardiovascular open-heart procedures, including
mitral valve and atrial defect repair.
Robotic gynecologic or urogynecologic procedures often allow women patients
to go home the same day of surgery with minimal pain and normal post-op
precautions. Urologic surgeons offer men prostate, kidney and bladder
procedures (for males and females) with minimally invasive incisions.
When indicated, two surgeons can operate during one anesthetic procedure,
greatly reducing operative risk and the need for multiple surgeries.
Utilizing the daVinci SI Surgical System, equipped with precision robotic
surgical instruments, 3-D real-time imaging, “Firefly” integrated
fluorescence imaging technology, Endowrist 45 stapling, enhanced maneuverability
and magnified perspective, our skilled surgeons can treat some of the
metropolitan New York region's most complex problems.
Newark Beth Israel Medical Center was a training ground for this innovative
technology and was the only facility of its kind in the eastern United
States, training surgeons on the latest robotic techniques. Our legacy
is one that inspired surgeons to come from around the world to our Robotic
Training Center to learn the art of precision and control in advanced
robotic-assisted surgeries. Today we continue to be on the cusp of technology
with precise, minimally invasive treatment options that enhance healing
and promote well-being for our patients.
