For more than 60 years, Monmouth Medical Center has been a leader in surgical services, earning a statewide reputation for excellence in the field. Throughout its history, the hospital's highly skilled team of surgeons has quickly adopted the latest surgical innovations and this pioneering spirit has set the stage for bringing the most advanced minimally invasive procedures to the region.

Over the past six decades, there have been incredible advances in the field of surgery, and many of these accomplishments have been achieved in teaching environments such as Monmouth. Advances occur in teaching hospitals because physicians are in a position to take part in important clinical research, with resident physicians working closely alongside them as part of their educational experience. In fact, Monmouth Medical Center became one of the first hospitals in the country to track major surgical complications and outcomes 10 years ago. Monmouth is proud of its status in offering the lowest surgical mortality in New Jersey (0.2 percent at MMC vs. 1.0 percent statewide).

As surgeons and teachers, Monmouth Medical Center's dedicated team of surgical specialists is constantly challenged to stay current in their fields. Because of this commitment to teaching, Monmouth always has been able to attract the top physicians in their fields who want to work in an academic environment. That's why Monmouth Medical Center became a leader in presenting multiple second opinions from multidisciplinary panels in breast cancer. Multiple opinions frequently change what's done surgically.

Monmouth is the leader for robotic and other minimally invasive surgeries for conditions including prostate and gynecologic cancers, morbid obesity, severe heartburn, and benign and malignant colon and kidney disease, as well as highly advanced chest surgeries including laparoscopic esophagogastrectomy and video assisted thoracotomy (VATS).
