With rapid advancements in computer-guided equipment, more patients are seeking out minimally invasive robotic-assisted surgical solutions for various medical conditions than ever before. Morristown Medical Center’s state-of-the-art robotic surgery program offers patients the most sophisticated technology available, providing care across numerous specialties from general surgery to gynecologic, urologic, oncology, bariatric procedures – and more.
While surgery used to be associated with long hospital stays, blood loss, and pain, robotic surgery is changing this narrative for patients. Robot-assisted procedures offer advantages over traditional open surgery including, reduced recovery time, smaller incisions, significantly less postoperative pain and blood loss, and a quicker return to daily activities.
Morristown Medical Center pioneered its robotic surgery program back in 2005, starting with one robot, and since then, the program has grown to include 4 robots with more to come. Morristown Medical Center remains steadfast in its dedication to delivering the best possible outcomes to our patients using the most cutting-edge technologies.
The da Vinci® Surgical System allows surgeons to work inside a patient’s body using small instruments that fit through tiny incisions. The instruments are precise, dexterous and have maximum range of motion that go beyond the capability of human hands. A three-dimensional camera magnifies visualization of the tissue and body structure and guides the surgeon during the entire procedure.
Our robust team of more than 25 surgeons use the da Vinci® Surgical System to perform minimally invasive robotic procedures at Morristown Medical Center and one outpatient surgical location at 111 Madison Avenue.
