We are a high volume, tertiary care center that specializing in minimally-invasive, laparoscopic and robotic surgeries as well as in complex oncologic and reconstructive surgery. We perform a high volume of radical cystectomies both open and robotic, with urinary tract reconstruction, robotic radical prostatectomies, retroperitoneal lymph node dissections, and percutaneous nephrolithotomies. We also perform a high volume of partial and radical nephrectomies in a variety of surgical approaches including robotic, laparoscopic, or open.
Our residents benefit from working closely with faculty at the Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey, which is the only NCI-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center in the state and enjoy a 6 month protected resarch block to pursue basic and/or clinic research in their subspecialty interest that aligns with their career goals. We provide a graded increase in patient care responsibility and operative autonomy. By providing two years of chief resident-level training (PGY-4 and PGY-5), our residents graduate with high surgical volume, excellent experience and confidence, and exceptional clinical and operative acumen.
