Jersey City Medical Center Now Offers Mako Robotic Surgery for Joint Replacements

Jersey City Medical Center recently introduced Mako Robotic technology for joint replacements of the hip and knee — introducing robotic surgery techniques into its orthopedic program capabilities and enhancing care for the community the hospital serves.

When a surgeon’s skilled hand meets robotic precision the results are astonishing.
Robotic surgery is the next generation of minimally invasive surgery which utilizes a high-level computer system to dramatically enhance visualization, precision, control and dexterity during surgery. In a robotic procedure, a computer is positioned between the surgeon’s hands and the tips of micro-instruments, giving surgeons the control, range of motion and 3-D visualization characteristic of open surgery.

Robotics SurgeryAs a minimally invasive alternative to traditional surgery, the techniques allow robotic surgeons at Jersey City Medical Center to operate through infinitely smaller incisions, resulting in:

  • Significantly less pain
  • Fewer side effects
  • Less scarring
  • A shorter hospital stay and recovery period
  • Quicker return to normal activities

In response to the significant increase in the number of surgical patients benefiting from advanced robotic technology, Jersey City Medical Center utilizes The da Vinci Xi Surgical System – the latest version of the robot which integrates 3D HD endoscopy and state-of-the-art robotic technology to virtually extend the surgeon’s eyes and hands into the surgical field.

Our Services

Robotic-assisted surgery at JCMC will be utilized for:

  • Hernia repairs
  • Gallbladder surgery
  • Benign colorectal surgery

The program will further expand in the coming months to include Urology, OB/Gyn, and Surgical Oncology.

As with all da Vinci Surgical Systems, the surgeon is 100% in control of the robotic-assisted da Vinci System, which translates the surgeon’s hand movements into smaller, more precise movements of tiny instruments inside the patient’s body. The System’s immersive 3D-HD vision system provides surgeons a highly magnified view, virtually extending their eyes and hands into the patient.

Key Features Include:

  • A new overhead instrument arm architecture designed to facilitate anatomical access from virtually any position.
  • A new endoscope digital architecture that creates a simpler, more compact design with improved vision, definition and clarity.
  • An ability to attach the endoscope to any arm, providing flexibility for visualizing the surgical site.
  • Smaller, thinner arms with newly designed joints that offer a greater range of motion than ever before.
  • Longer instrument shafts designed to give surgeons greater operative reach.
