Hackensack University Medical Center Urology

Pushing the boundaries of urological care through leading-edge and best in class surgical techniques, dedicated clinical research and highly specialized care.

Hackensack University Medical Center Department of Urology offers the most advanced urologic cancer care in the state, and in many cases, the nation. We offer our patients the most state-of-the-art technology available, including highly advanced, minimally invasive robotic surgical treatment. Our specialists participate in research to find new, effective treatments and develop minimally invasive, robotic and organ-sparing surgical techniques for urologic cancers. By participating in clinical trials, our patients receive access to leading-edge treatments and therapies before they are available to the public. Our urologists are also collecting and analyzing patient data to determine the best treatments and improve the standard of care for urologic cancers. Using this information, our urologists have authored papers and abstracts and entered into data-sharing agreements with hospitals around the country.
