At White Plains Hospital, we are proud to provide complete, innovative and effective care for benign and malignant diseases of the chest. We take a patient-centered approach to thoracic surgery in treating problems affecting the lungs, esophagus, and trachea, as well as disorders that occur in the space between the lungs, where the heart and its large veins and arteries are found. In addition to traditional surgeries, our experts offer cutting-edge minimally invasive surgical techniques using robotics and specially designed instruments that are safer, less painful and allow for a quicker recovery.
Our Thoracic Surgery Service includes board-certified thoracic surgeons, pulmonologists, anesthesiologists, gastroenterologists, radiation and medical oncologists, and critical care intensivists. Our skilled team provides each patient with an individualized treatment plan in an expeditious manner so the time from diagnosis to treatment is minimized.
