Robotic Urogynecology Surgery

The urogynecologists at Hackensack Meridian Health are pioneers in innovative robotic surgery for treating conditions of the reproductive organs and pelvic area, including cancer.

We’ve long been a leader in robotic surgery for women, starting with the introduction of robotic hysterectomy more than 20 years ago.

Our team of urogynecology robotic surgeons offers experience you won’t find anywhere else in the area.

Our Doctors

Our Urogynecologists use robotic technology for many urogynecological surgeries, which means smaller incisions, less pain, and a faster recovery.

Robotic Surgery for Your Condition


Pelvic floor disorders and bladder control issues become more common as women age. Our urogynecologists are board-certified doctors with special training to address pain in the lower abdomen or trouble with urinary, fecal or sexual function.

Conditions We Treat

  • Chronic Pelvic Pain
  • Pelvic Organ Prolapse
  • Urinary or Fecal Incontinence
Robotic Procedures
  • Pelvic Reconstruction (Sacrocolpopexy): Surgically correct pelvic organ prolapse using mesh to hold the vagina in the correct position.
  • Prolapse Repair: Repair weakened pelvic floor tissue to support pelvic organs.

Advantages of Robotic Urogynecology Surgery

How Robotic Surgery Works

  • The robot’s surgical instruments and a camera are inserted into your body through several small incisions. 
  • The view of the surgical area from the surgeon’s control console is a 3D, high-definition image magnified ten times. 
  • Your surgeon performs your surgery by directing the robot’s movements in real time. The robot’s tools move with greater range of motion and precision than a human hand.  

Benefits of Robotic Surgery Compared to Traditional Surgery 

  • Smaller incisions and less tissue damage
  • Increased precision – with greater flexibility, stability and range of motion than a human hand
  • Decreased blood loss and reduced need for transfusions
  • Less risk of infection
  • Less pain after surgery
  • Smaller external and internal scars
  • Shorter hospital stay
  • Faster recovery and return to normal activities
