Michael W. Kuchera, MD, specializes in major laparoscopic surgery with the Da Vinci® robotic surgical system — a technique that promotes faster recovery times for hysterectomy compared with traditional surgical techniques. In many cases, women who have a laparoscopic hysterectomy can go home the same day they have the procedure. Dr. Kuchera also specializes in vaginal surgery as well as diagnostic and therapeutic office-based procedures.
Dr. Kuchera is an attending physician at Morristown Medical Center and the Morristown Medical Center Atlantic Health System Clinic Service in Morristown, New Jersey. In addition, he educates and trains obstetrics and gynecology residents in the Morristown Medical Center OB/GYN Residency Program. He is a fellow of the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, a diplomate of the National Board of Medical Examiners and American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology, and a member of the American Medical Association and American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology.
"As an obstetrician and gynecologist, I enjoy being on the leading edge of new procedures, medical advances, and therapeutic techniques," says Dr. Kuchera. He adds, "I believe in treating my patients with the same respect, compassion, care, and skill I want for my family."
Dr. Kuchera has volunteered for the Paramus Volunteer Ambulance Corp and American Red Cross. He is a recipient of the New Jersey State Policemen's Benevolent Association Award for Bravery and Certificate of Merit.
