To promote early detection of lung cancer Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital has partnered with the Thoracic Oncology Program at Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey and University Radiology / Department of Radiology at Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School to launch a Lung Cancer Screening Program for those at high risk for developing the disease due primarily to past or current smoking habits and/or a history of chronic lung disease.

The Cardiovascular Center of Excellence at RWJ was recently selected to be one of the first sites in the nation to offer Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR) since the procedure received FDA approval. It is the latest in cardiac treatment breakthroughs being offered by RWJ.
TAVR allows a multidisciplinary team of cardiac surgeons, vascular surgeons, interventional cardiologists and cardiac anesthesiologists at RWJUH and RWJMS to replace a patient’s diseased aortic valve without using traditional open-heart surgery and while the heart continues to beat, avoiding the need for cardiopulmonary bypass.
The Stereotaxis Gentle Touch Magnetic Navigation System offers a high level of precision and safety. Physicians operate two huge magnets, which are positioned outside the body, to precisely maneuver catheters throughout the delicate cardiovascular system.
With the computer to assist in precise navigation, the doctor is then able to focus on the patient and the outcome rather than the mechanics of the procedure.
The designated Stroke Center at RWJUH provides patients with rapid diagnosis and treatment, specialized inpatient care, access to clinical research through our relationship with UMDNJ-Robert Wood Johnson Medical School, discharge planning and post-hospitalization follow-up care.
