Why Choose Mountainside Medical Center?

The latest surgical robotic technology enables surgeons at Mountainside Medical Center to provide personalized surgical experience in the areas of orthopedics, gynecology, bariatric surgery and general surgery.

What is Robotic Surgery?

It is a common misconception that robotic surgery means that a robot replaces the surgeon or diminishes the surgeon’s role. In reality, highly regarded surgeons who pride themselves on taking advantage of the most current technology to achieve the best patient outcomes choose to perform procedures using robotic technology.

We provide advanced surgical options in a comfortable, and safe, community setting. Our robotic surgery program offers:

  • Unsurpassed quality and safety
  • A thorough, personalized pre-surgery and post-surgery program, including a comprehensive rehabilitation program for those who need it
  • Talented, skilled surgeons, experienced in the use of robotic technology
  • Experienced, specially trained and certified operating room team
  • Less discomfort and scarring than other surgical techniques
  • Reduced recovery times and a more rapid return to day-to-day activities


da Vinci robotics enhance the capabilities of even the most talented, experienced surgeons. As a result, many surgeries performed with da Vinci are even less invasive than traditional alternatives – this translates into less discomfort, a quicker recovery process, minimal inconvenience and improved cosmetic appearance of surgical scars for most robotic surgery patients.

Surgeons at Mountainside Medical Center use the Mako Robotic Arm for total hip replacement, total knee replacement and partial knee replacement.

Each patient is unique and can experience joint pain for different reasons. It’s important to talk to us about the reason for your joint pain so you can understand the treatment options available to you. Pain from arthritis and joint degeneration can be constant or come and go, occur with movement or after a period of rest, or be located in one spot or many parts of the body. It is common for patients to try medication and other conservative treatments to treat their knee or hip pain. If you haven’t experienced adequate relief with those treatment options, you may be a candidate for Mako SmartRobotics™ for Total Knee, Total Hip, or Partial Knee replacement.

The Mako application is an orthopedic replacement treatment option designed to relieve the pain caused by joint degeneration due to osteoarthritis. Through CT-based 3D modeling of bone anatomy, surgeons can use the Mako System to create a personalized surgical plan and identify the implant size, orientation and alignment based on each patient’s unique anatomy. The Mako System also enables surgeons to virtually modify the surgical plan intra-operatively and assists the surgeon in executing bone resections.
