Hackensack University Medical Center First Hospital in New Jersey to Offer Revolutionary, Minimally Invasive Robotic Lung Biopsy Procedures

Hackensack Meridian Health

Hackensack University Medical Center is at the forefront of providing leading-edge treatments that enhance patient care. Utilizing an innovative, new robotic-assisted technology like Ion, our team members will redesign the way we care for patients with lung abnormalities by doing real-time lung biopsies, diagnosing lung cancer earlier and providing more precise treatment. Ion’s robotic-assisted platform allows for a minimally invasive biopsy of the lung. The system’s precision and flexibility enable optimal lung navigation and produce more accurate biopsies. Ion will be used for lung cancer screening and early diagnosis by providing more access to small airways or hard-to-reach nodules that other technologies are unable to achieve, as well as for patients who are not surgical candidates but need biopsies to treat cancers.
