Dr. Aryeh Keehn Designated as a Center of Excellence for GreenLight™ Laser Therapy

Center of Excellence Recognizes High Degree of Experience with New Technology

Dr. Aryeh Keehn Urologist Bayonne Rahway West Orange NJWe’re pleased to announce that Dr. Aryeh Keehn has been designated as a Center of Excellence for GreenLight™ Laser Therapy treatment – a minimally invasive outpatient procedure for men looking to treat their benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), not just the symptoms. GreenLight Therapy can help provide immediate relief from enlarged prostate symptoms such as frequent urination—especially at night, weak urine flow, urgency and incomplete bladder emptying. In addition, GreenLight Laser Therapy requires no incisions and typically has no overall deleterious impact on sexual function.1 The Center of Excellence designation recognizes Dr. Keehn’s high degree of experience with GreenLight Laser Therapy and commitment to delivering effective, long-lasting therapy to men suffering from BPH.1

BPH is a condition in which a man’s prostate enlarges and squeezes the urethra, causing frustrating symptoms such as frequent or urgent urination, a weak or interrupted urine stream, and the need to get up several times a night to urinate. It affects about 50% of men by age 60, and up to 90% of men by age 85.2

GreenLight Laser Therapy uses laser energy to vaporize the enlarged tissue, creating an open channel for urine to pass through the urethra. In addition to typically experiencing immediate improvements in urine flow, many patients are pleased to know that GreenLight typically has no overall deleterious impact on sexual function.1 GreenLight Laser therapy is a long-term solution without the need for BPH medication.1

GreenLight Therapy is currently being used in many leading urology practices throughout the United States. To date, more than 1 million patients around the world have been successfully treated with GreenLight Therapy.3

New Jersey Urology becomes the leading center in the northeast to offer single port robotic surgery for bladder cancer

New Jersey Urology is among the first in the world to perform the da Vinci single port robotic surgery.

NJU, renowned leader and center of excellence in robotic surgery for twenty years, is the first and only in the northeast to offer single port robotic surgery for bladder cancer. The single port robotic radical cystectomy — a procedure to treat bladder cancer by removing the entire bladder — is performed at Hackensack University Medical Center through a single three-centimeter incision using the da Vinci SP® Surgical System. NJU also specializes in a plethora of other robotic cancer and reconstructive surgeries. This center is the most experienced with these procedures, and have advanced their techniques to perfection.

Since 2016, Mutahar Ahmed, M.D. serves as the Director, Urologic Bladder Cancer Program at Hackensack University Medical Center. He has completed 15 single port robotic radical cystectomies since then, establishing him as one of the most experienced surgeons in the world at performing this highly specialized procedure.

“We have one of the highest volumes of robotic cystectomy centers in the country. Now we have added the single port surgery to our repertoire, which allows us to provide state-of-the-art care to our patients,” said Dr. Ahmed.

Standard robotic laparoscopic surgeries require 5-6 small incisions, whereas the revolutionary single port robotic procedure combines them into one keyhole incision. Most radical cystectomies at other centers are still performed using traditional open surgery techniques. Only a handful are being performed using this innovative single port robotic surgery, while NJU specializes in minimizing incisions. In addition to removing the bladder, surgeons perform urinary reconstruction to create a new way for urine to collect and exit the body.

Aside from Radical cystectomy we also perform other urological cancer surgery using the single port robot such as:

  • Radical prostatectomy
  • Partial nephrectomy
  • Other reconstructive surgeries like Ureteropelvic Junction Obstruction (UPJ) repairs

Robotic cystectomies have been shown to provide cancer treatment that is just as effective as traditional open surgery. The highly specialized robotic surgery benefits include:

  • Less discomfort
  • Shorter hospital stay
  • Faster recovery
  • Improved cosmetic results for patients

In the past five years, NJU urologists have performed more than 250 robotic cystectomies. NJU’s urological surgeons are now performing between 60 and 70 robotic cystectomy procedures each year — which is the highest annual volume of robotic cystectomies performed in New Jersey.

We’re proud to announce that 17 New Jersey Urology physicians have been honored as 2020 Jersey Choice Top Doctors by New Jersey Monthly Magazine.
