The Institute for Robotic Surgery at Hudson Regional Hospital is proud to provide the most advanced and comprehensive gynecologic surgical care in the Tri-State area. The scope of our practice includes both normal and high-risk care and same-day, minimally invasive procedures.
Our experienced surgeons, caring and supportive nurses, and modern technology work to make sure women have the best possible care and experience at our facility
Yitzhack Asulin, MD, is one of the country’s leading experts in robotic surgery for gynecology and urogynecology. He works with our team of board-certified surgeons to utilize the da Vinci® Xi robotic surgical system and treat a broad spectrum of gynecologic conditions and diseases in the most innovative and minimally invasive as possible.
“There is no comparison to what the da Vinci offers in terms of precision, superb visuals of the surgical field, and the outcomes I can provide for my patients,” says Dr. Yitzhack Asulin, Director of the Institute for Robotic Surgery at Hudson Regional Hospital. Before these minimally invasive innovations, a woman who was facing a hysterectomy, for example, had only one option—open surgery. That requires a five- to seven-inch incision, either up-and-down or side-to-side across the abdomen.
The Insitute for Robotic Surgery at Hudson Regional Hospital is proud to offer same-day, minimally invasive procedures—so you can get back to daily life faster. No matter your needs or treatment plan, our team of doctors and nurses is by your side every step of the way. Check out our most commonly performed treatments below
The use of robotics—with 3D, high-definition visuals that provide superior depth perception and high magnification—gives surgeons exceptional motor control and a 360º range of motion that’s not possible with the human hand or with regular laparoscopy.
For women suffering from uterine prolapse, vaginal prolapse, urinary incontinence, uterine fibroids or endometriosis, or those facing a hysterectomy now have minimally invasive solutions that produce outstanding results. Additionally, our techniques are proven to reduce blood loss, discomfort, infection risk, and recovery time.
During a robot-assisted procedure, the surgeon works through three small incisions, subjecting the body to less trauma. Patients are back to work and everyday activities weeks earlier and have considerably less scarring after the incisions heal. The quality-of-life implications can be substantial, according to Dr. Asulin. “I recently had a patient who suffered from large uterine fibroids,” he says. “They were painful, exerted pressure on her bladder, and impacted her daily routine to the point where she needed to plan her life around the problems they caused,” says Dr. Asulin. “Within a week and a half after her surgery, she was back to life as usual.”
