Gynecologic Oncologist, With Board Certification in GYN Oncology, OB/GYN, and Surgery Offers Women With Cancer the Newest Treatment Frontier: the Surgical Robot
Date:4/8/2008

Divisions of Gynecologic Oncology," says Andrew L. Pecora, M.D., chairman and executive administrative director of The Cancer Center at Hackensack University Medical Center. "The Cancer Center has made a major commitment to women with gynecologic malignancies by bringing together Drs. Smith and Litkouhi and supporting their efforts to offer patients innovative and personalized care."

Drs. Smith and Litkouhi use minimally invasive techniques with the laparoscope or the daVinci(TM) robot to treat patients with cervical, endometrial, and early ovarian cancers. Minimally invasive gynecologic surgery with the robot is performed within keyhole abdominal incisions, thus lowering the post-operative risks of pain, wound infections, and difficulties with urinary and respiratory systems. Most patients go home the day after surgery.

"Experience is showing that robotic surgery for gynecologic cancers is at least or more effective than traditional surgery without debilitating side effects," says Dr. Smith, who has been treating gynecologic cancers for almost 30 years. "Robotic surgery can be a good choice for older patients, especially those on multiple medications or anti-coagulants, and obese patients, who were once exempted from some types of laparoscopic gynecologic surgeries."

With five daVinci(TM) robots, Hackensack University Medical Center has the most in the New Jersey and is an East Coast training site for the technology. Surgeons from all over the United States and the world have come to the medical center to learn robotic surgery.

The Cancer Center at Hackensack University Medical Center is New Jersey's largest and the one ranked the best cancer center in the state by New York magazine.
