Are you seeking treatment for Prostate Cancer?

If you are still reeling from a prostate cancer diagnosis and looking for the most experienced doctors and advanced prostate cancer treatment available, search no more. We understand that you need answers about prostate treatment, prostate surgery and in particular, prostatectomy. Having performed more than 5,000 Robotic Prostatectomy surgeries using the da Vinci Robotic Surgical System®the Doctors of the NJ Center for Prostate Cancer & Urology are the national leaders in the minimally-invasive, urologic robotic surgery.

These doctors were the first surgeons in New Jersey to master the art of robotic prostatectomy. Having saved over 5,000 lives, with a 0% mortality rate, these skilled surgeons have become educators in the use of the the daVinci Robotic Surgical System® for the treatment of prostate cancer. Continual research, and the innovative use of minimally-invasive, robotic surgery techniques has lead to successful treatment of kidney cancer as well as other urological diseases and disorders.

In fact, our Urologists wrote the book! Robotic Urologic Surgery is the text book used by Dr. Vincent Lanteri, Dr. Michael Esposito, Dr. Mutahar Ahmed, Dr. Gregory Lovallo, Dr. Nitin Patel and Dr. Thomas Christiano to teach other surgeons throughout the United States and Europe how to perform Robotic Prostate Surgery.

Using the da Vinci Robot for robotic prostate surgery enables surgical precision beyond the limits of the human hand. The 3-D view it provides aids your surgeons in navigating the delicate nerves and blood vessels around the prostate. This revolutionary system also enhances the advantages of laparoscopic surgery, increasing patient comfort and outcomes:

Less bleeding (bloodless surgery, transfusion-free)

Less pain and scarring due to smaller incisions

Non-thermal nerve-sparing with improved erectile function

Rapid urinary control with less incontinence

Quicker recovery – a one day hospital stay

Equal / improved Cancer cure rate

For patients seeking an alternative to surgery, the Center also offers Cryotherapy for Prostate Cancer. The procedure utilizes sub-freezing temperatures which are instantly lethal to cancer cells. A consultation with your doctor here at the Center will help determine whether a surgical or non-surgical solution is right for you.

I researched on the Internet extensively and found that Lanteri & Esposito actually wrote a text book for other doctors. These guys really know what they’re doing. I was extremely confident in them.

Are you considering surgery for bladder cancer, kidney cancer or adrenal gland disease?

Being diagnosed with bladder cancer was devastating. I was worried about survival and then when my oncologist recommended surgery, I envisioned the rest of my days living with incontinence issues. Then I was referred to NJCPC&U and told they were the most experienced robotic surgeons who also had the ability to reconstruct my bladder. Nine months out, I’m still amazed and grateful – minimal pain, no incontinence and the cancer is gone.
