HUMC aims to stay at the forefront of clinical research and treatment by participating in clinical trials and obtaining advanced technology for surgeons to provide better care. In 2016, HUMC was the first hospital in New Jersey to offer robotic technology for spinal procedures, and it plans to participate in a clinical trial for interspinous fixation devices for spinal stenosis over the next year. The hospital also plans to join the W.M. Keck Center for Collaborative Neuroscience at Rutgers University's Spinal Cord Injury Project in 2018.
