Robotic Ear Nose and Throat Surgery
Minimizing Discomfort and Recovery Time
The ENT surgeons at Hackensack University Medical Center use robotic technology to shorten recovery time, minimize discomfort, reduce scarring and provide the best surgical results.
Pioneers in Robotic Surgery
Hackensack University Medical Center is the first hospital in the northeastern United States to acquire the cutting-edge da Vinci Xi® robotic surgical system. Our surgeons use the da Vinci Xi® robotic surgical system to perform minimally invasive transoral robotic surgery (TORS), which treats tumors in the throat, at the base of the tongue and on the tonsils. Robotic technology also can be used to treat sleep apnea by removing the third tonsil.
The da Vinci Xi® Robotic Surgical System
The da Vinci Xi® robotic surgical system includes four robotic arms that can rotate to practically any position and a camera that provides a 3D view of the inside of your body. The system’s instruments are ideal for use in small areas with complicated anatomy such as the head and neck and provide our surgeons with ease-of-movement and advanced visibility.
