Menorah Medical Center is a Center of Excellence in Robotic Surgery as determined by the Surgical Review Corporation. We perform robotic-assisted surgery for colorectal, orthopedics, gynecology, urology, ear, nose and throat, head and neck and general surgeries. Menorah is also the first in the region with a single incision robot, used for urology procedures.

Menorah is a leader and an early adopter in the region with robotic-assisted surgery. Since 2012, our team of world-class surgeons have performed more than 5,000 procedures with the use of robotic technology.

Menorah's staff includes the Surgical Review Corporation's first two surgeons who achieved Master Surgeon status in Robotic-Assisted Colorectal Surgery in the United States. Many of our surgeons train other surgeons around the United States and the world on how to use robotics in their hospitals.

Education

Our team works closely with patients to educate them on how the technology will be used for their particular surgery to help minimize pain, blood loss and ultimately improve the overall outcome of a surgical procedure. The following procedures/conditions are treated with robotics at Menorah Medical Center.

  • Colorectal (colon)
  • Orthopedics (knee)
  • Bariatrics
  • Hysterectomies
  • Prostate Cancer
  • Kidney Cancer
  • Gallbladder
  • Sleep Apnea
  • Throat Cancer

Smaller incision. Greater precision.

'

Robotic-assisted surgery's advanced level technology takes surgery beyond the limits of the human hand. It allows patients to have the best possible outcomes and provides access to the latest medical advancements.

An alternative to open surgery

  • Significantly less pain; fewer side effects
  • Reduced risk of infection
  • Shorter hospital stays
  • Smaller incisions; less scarring and less blood loss
  • Quicker return to normal activities
  • In many cases, better outcomes

Physician benefits

Robotic-assisted surgery provides surgeons with greater precision, control and access to hard-to-reach areas, allowing extremely complex operations to be performed through just a few small incisions. Leading the way is our newly acquired state-of-the-art single-incision robot, which is currently just one of 32 in the United States. Here a few additional benefits for surgeons.

  • Enhanced 3D, high-definition vision of operative field with up to 10x magnification
  • Dual console allows second surgeon to provide assistance
  • Superior visual clarity of tissue and anatomy
  • Surgical dexterity and precision far greater than even the human hand
  • Updated and simplified user interface to enhance OR efficiency

Colorectal cancer

Robotic surgery provides surgeons with greater precision, control and access to hard-to-reach areas like the colon, allowing extremely complex operations to be performed through just a few small incisions. Many colorectal surgeons use robotics for colon cancer procedures at Menorah Medical Center and our dedicated multidisciplinary team of physicians work together to ensure every patient has a care plan built specifically for them with the quickest time to treatment possible.

Knee replacement surgery

The use of robotics in orthopedics allows for precision and accuracy. The robotic system allows the orthopedic surgeon to adjust the plan during surgery as needed. When the surgeon prepares the bone for the implant, the robotic-arm guides the surgeon within the pre-defined area. This helps provide a more precise placement within a half-millimeter and alignment of a patient's implant. Additionally it provides validation the procedure will be more predictable.

Throat cancer

TransOral Robotic Surgery (TORS) is perhaps the most effective minimally invasive surgical treatment for diseases of the head and neck available today. The robotic surgical system allows the surgeon to provide the patient with procedures equivalent to traditional transoral surgery, but with the advantage of 3D, high-definition visualization of the laryngopharyngeal structures, and the precision and dexterity afforded by robotic instrumentation.
