Robotic Surgery

When a surgeon’s skilled hand meets robotic precision the results are astonishing.

Robotic Surgery at Saint Barnabas Medical Center in Livingston NJ

Robotic surgery is the next generation of minimally invasive surgery which utilizes a high-level computer system to dramatically enhance visualization, precision, control and dexterity during surgery. In a robotic procedure, a computer is positioned between the surgeon’s hands and the tips of micro-instruments, giving surgeons the control, range of motion and 3-D visualization characteristic of open surgery.

As a minimally invasive alternative to traditional surgery, the techniques allow robotic surgeons at Saint Barnabas Medical Center to operate through infinitely smaller incisions, resulting in:

  • significantly less pain
  • fewer side effects
  • less scarring
  • a shorter hospital stay and recovery period
  • quicker return to normal activities

In response to the significant increase in the number of surgical patients benefiting from advanced robotic technoloy, Saint Barnabas Medical Center utilizes The da Vinci S HD Surgical System – the latest version of the robot which integrates 3D HD endoscopy and state-of-the-art robotic technology to virtually extend the surgeon’s eyes and hands into the surgical field.
