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 have questions about prostate treatment, prostate surgery and in particular, prostatectomy. Having performed more than 5000 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 surgery.
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, and Dr. Gregory Lovallo 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?
The Center's specialized Urologists have mastered the use of minimally-invasive, robotic surgery for numerous other urologic conditions suffered by both men and women.
Robotic Pyeloplasty is the preferred treatment for patients experiencing blockages in the ureter. The procedure enables urine to flow normally again from the kidneys to the bladder.
For patients with kidney cancer, the Center offers three types of Laparoscopic or Robotic Nephrectomy: partial, simple and radical. Your surgeon will recommend the appropriate procedure for your condition, to assure cancer cure and maintain normal kidney function.
Those diagnosed with advanced bladder cancer can now benefit from Robotic Cystectomy for bladder removal and urinary tract reconstruction. All forms of reconstruction are offered by the Center’s doctors, from a simple ileal conduit diversion (with a bag for drainage) to a neobladder, requiring the creation of a new bladder from intestine. Complex reconstruction mimics the natural form and function, with minimized chances of post-operative incontinence or impotence, excellent cure rates, overall satisfaction, and a return to "normal" life.
The failure of conventional therapy for adrenal gland disease or the presence of a tumor may require the removal of one or both of the adrenal glands. Expert use of laparoscopy and/or the da Vinci Robot to perform Robotic Adrenalectomy increases the safety of the procedure, minimizes hospitalization and promotes rapid recovery.
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.
