The St. John’s Riverside Hospital Thoracic Surgery team focuses on the chest organs, including the heart, lungs, esophagus, and trachea, and treat lung cancers, esophageal cancers, mediastinal tumors and a range of complex benign diseases and conditions of the chest. We also work with other specialists to treat patients whose cancer has metastasized from other locations to the lungs, chest wall or mediastinum.
More than 80% of our surgical treatments and evaluations are done with minimally invasive approaches, which results in smaller incisions, a shorter hospital stay, less pain after surgery and a faster recovery time.
Our approaches include robotic surgery, thoracoscopic surgery, navigational bronchoscopy, and endobronchial ultrasound.
We also perform ‘open’ procedures when necessary, including for complex airway surgeries, chest wall tumors and large tumors of the mediastinum.
By combining the latest technology with traditional techniques, we give our patients at St. John’s Riverside Hospital, the best care in the New York metropolitan region.
