Patient Story

“When I learned I needed surgery to remove a cancerous tumor on my tongue, I was afraid I’d lose part of my tongue and my ability to speak. But that didn’t happen, and thanks to noninvasive robotic surgery, I received a second life. I want everyone to know what a great job the team at Hackensack did. I could not have asked for anything better.” - John Longo
