The Department of Surgery, Hackensack University Medical Center, has a long and distinguished tradition of excellence. Our department stands upon three important pillars that together ensure that all patients receive outstanding and compassionate care. It is through outstanding patient care, advanced surgical education, and dedicated and innovative research that we provide you with the high-quality and compassionate care you can receive only in a world-class institution like ours.
Every year, members of our team perform thousands of surgical procedures spanning the range from the more common to the very rare. This wide-ranging experience means that our surgeons are ready to perform even the most complex procedures. Our expert surgeons provide patient-focused, multidisciplinary care in many different disciplines, including robot-assisted heart and esophagus surgery, minimally invasive and laparoscopic procedures, advanced surgical treatment of pancreatic, liver, and upper gastrointestinal cancers, breast cancer, colorectal disease, vascular surgery, trauma, and metabolic and bariatric surgery. Working as part of a collaborative care team with referring physicians and always striving to maintain the highest surgical standards, the Department of Surgery is a resource for the community, the state of New Jersey, and the New York metropolitan area.
And, as a top-tier teaching institution, we are committed to teaching the next generation of surgeons as an integrated member of Rutgers surgical residency program.
Our surgeons are not only clinicians and educators, but they are also researchers. As physician-scientists, they are committed to bringing the latest in pioneering treatments from the lab to practice.
