EDWIN AMIRATA, MD, FACS, AND ROBERT BRAUTIGAN, MD, FACS
Continuing the legacy of more than 40 years of excellence, Drs. Amirata and Brautigan are partners in a top-tier general surgery practice
founded by Dr. Amirata’s father, Peter. Recognized for overall surgical expertise, they have a special interest in abdominal, breast, and mini-
mally invasive laparoscopic and robotic surgery, the latter primarily involving colon resections and hernia repairs. “We do big surgeries with
little incisions,” says Dr Amirata, who has been in practice for eighteen years. “The equipment we use continues to improve, and patients ben-
efit from our knowledge of the latest advances in technology.”
Personalized attention is also a top priority of the practice, with both doctors always available to address patient questions and concerns.
Dr. Amirata, who is an assistant clinical instructor at Rutgers NJ Medical School, is also past president of the medical staff at Clara Maass
Medical Center, where Dr. Brautigan serves as the secretary of the medical staff. A bilingual (Spanish-speaking) surgeon, Dr. Jorge Lopez-
Canino, has also recently joined the practice.
