Leaders in Single Port Robotic SurgeryHackensack University Medical Center was among the first hospitals in the world — and the first in New Jersey — to use the fourth-generation da Vinci SP® single-port robotic surgery system for urologic surgeries. The SP platform provides for a new approach to single-site laparoscopic or robotic techniques and offers a minimally invasive approach for major robotic urological operations. The da Vinci SP surgical system provides surgeons with a magnified view of the surgical area as well as a greater range of motion thanks to the advanced robotics involved. The surgeon’s hand motions are translated in real time and guided through a console, making it possible for operations to occur through a single 1-inch wide incision.
"We are one of the first 10 programs in the world to bring in the single-port robot...over the last 2 years we have performed over 600 surgeries."
