Robotic-Assisted Surgery Treats a Variety of Health Conditions
St. Joseph’s is leading the way in robotic surgery techniques, offering you shorter hospital stays.
If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with a condition that may require surgery, you owe it to yourself to learn about all of your medical options, including the most effective, least invasive surgical treatments available.
Minimally invasive, robotic-assisted surgery allows our surgeons to perform many kinds of major surgery with less patient pain, minimal scarring, faster recovery and shorter hospital stays. Robotic technology takes surgery beyond the limits of the human hand, introducing precise, versatile instrument movement combined with three-dimensional visualization of the operative site
“Robotic surgery is the latest evolution of minimally invasive surgical procedures and is now available at St. Joseph’s on the da Vinci and Mako Robotic Surgical Systems,” explains Tanuja Damani, MD, FACS, Director of Robotic Surgery at St. Joseph’s University Medical Center.
Today, robotic-assisted surgery is the least invasive and often most effective procedure available. Addressing the shortcomings of other types of surgery, robotic-assisted surgery offers many advantages to both the patient and the doctor. It combines the effective control of open surgery with the less invasive approach of laparoscopy.
St. Joseph’s University Medical Center and St. Joseph’s Wayne Medical Center are leaders in Minimally Invasive Robotic-Assisted Surgery for a variety of health conditions using the da Vinci Surgical System.
