Date:3/22/2012

ommitted to remaining at the forefront of innovation and technology, driven to provide our patients the best medical care we are able to deliver. This latest innovation is just a natural progression of the focus of HackensackUMC to be in the vanguard of the healthcare industry," said Dr. Stephen Pereira. "This surgery is only the beginning of many more noteworthy surgical advancements. The approval of the single incision platform for gallbladder surgery will likely lead to the future approval of the system for use in other procedures."

Leading in Robotic Surgery

HackensackUMC has been at the forefront of robotic surgery for over a decade. Robotic surgery began at HackensackUMC in 2000 with two da Vinci™ robots. The medical center went on to become the first institution in the world to own three, then four, and then as many as six da Vinci systems on a single campus. It currently has five: three da Vinci Si HD™ Surgical Systems, the latest robots in the da Vinci surgical product line, and two former versions are used to train physicians, as Hackensack is a designated da Vinci Training Center in the Northeast.

"The surgical care we're able to offer our patients with the da Vinci Si HD™ Surgical System is unmatched," said Ihor Sawczuk, M.D., of Rockleigh, chairman of the Department of Urology and chief of Urologic Oncology at the John Theurer Cancer Center at HackensackUMC. "The da Vinci offers minimally invasive alternatives to complex surgical procedures with tremendous positive clinical results for patients."

For over a decade, surgeons at HackensackUMC have performed more than 4,000 successful robotic surgeries in four specialties: Urology, Obstetrics & Gynecology, Thoracic Surgery and General Surgery. HackensackUMC performs the highest volume of robotic surgeries in New Jersey and is among the world leaders in robotic surgery volume.
