Overview of Josie Robertson Surgery Center
Memorial Sloan Kettering surgeons perform more than 20,000 operations each year. More than half of those are done as outpatient procedures. The Josie Robertson Surgery Center on Manhattan’s Upper East Side is a first-of-its-kind freestanding surgical facility where our surgeons can perform outpatient procedures in a state-of-the-art setting.
Here’s a look at what you and your caregiver can expect during your stay at MSK’s Josie Robertson Surgery Center.
The Josie Robertson Surgery Center has 12 operating rooms and care areas that have been specifically designed for certain procedures. Some of the most common procedures performed at the JRSC include:
- mastectomy and breast reconstruction
- plastic and reconstructive surgery
The center has an 18-bed unit where patients can rest before and after surgery. There are also 28 private rooms with bathrooms and caregiver spaces for those staying overnight. In addition, we have a lounge for resting and recharging, a cafe, and a retail pharmacy for cancer-specific medications.
Your surgeon plays a big role in your treatment at the Josie Robertson Surgery Center. Most surgical oncologists focus on a certain type of cancer or cancer that occurs in a particular part of the body. Many MSK surgeons are trained to use specialized instruments or minimally invasive techniques, such as robotic surgery, laparoscopic surgery, or microsurgery.
When you come to the Josie Robertson Surgery Center, your doctor, anesthesiologist, nurses, and other members of your care team will develop a treatment plan that will lead to the best possible outcome for you.
