Minimally Invasive and Same Day Surgery Options

Surgery at Meridian HealthThanks to advances in technology, many procedures that once required large incisions and long hospital stays can now be done using minimally invasive or laparoscopic approaches. Laparoscopic surgery reduces the size of the incision and generally results in less pain and scarring, faster recovery, and reduced incidence of post-surgical complication. In addition, many of these surgeries can be completed on a same day basis so patients go home less than 24 hours after surgery.

Robotic Surgery

At Meridian, robotically-assisted surgery is currently being done at Jersey Shore University Medical Center in Neptune, Riverview Medical Center in Red Bank and Ocean Medical Center in Brick. Our surgeons use the da Vinci® Surgical System which allows them to use small incisions associated with traditional laparoscopic surgery, but with improved visualization and range of motion.

With You Every Step of the Way

We understand the importance of knowledge and comfort in a patient’s surgical experience. Meridian emphasizes educating patients both pre-operatively and post-operatively about what they can expect throughout their procedure, post surgery, and proper care after returning home.
