NewYork-Presbyterian, with Weill Cornell Medicine, opened the Lower Manhattan Cancer Center, a freestanding, state-of-the-art radiation oncology center located on 21 West Broadway in Manhattan. The NewYork-Presbyterian/Lower Manhattan Cancer Center is the newest site providing cancer care available as part of the Stich Radiation Oncology Center at NewYork-Presbyterian and at Weill Cornell Medicine, and is the only radiation oncology center in Lower Manhattan. Dr. Jim C. Hu has now joined the Lower Manhattan Cancer Center, treating urologic cancers in collaboration with the Dr. Hu-led LeFrak Center for Robotic Surgery.
At the Lower Manhattan Cancer Center, we take a personalized approach to cancer care and design customized cancer therapies tailored to each patient’s unique cancer and individual tumor. Radiation therapy is administered in a supportive and soothing spa-like setting focused on healing. Our vision is that the entire treatment experience must be focused on health promotion and well-being. In addition to radiation therapy, complementary therapies such as meditation are offered to support the patient’s journey toward optimal recovery.
With the addition of Dr. Hu’s expertise, in conjunction with the LeFrak Center, we can meet many of our patient’s needs when they have been recently diagnosed with prostate, kidney, bladder, or testicular cancer. Many of our patients come to us anxious and concerned of what is to come. The state-of-the-art equipment and advanced technology offered at The LeFrak Center allow patients to communicate about their condition with ease and feel confident knowing they are receiving the best prostate and urologic cancer care available in the nation. We embrace robotically assisted and minimally invasive surgical practices that reduce the recovery time and post-op complications associated with traditional surgeries. For more information, please visit The LeFrak Center for Robotic Surgery.
Patients at the Lower Manhattan Cancer Center receive targeted radiation therapy with reduced risk to critical structures. Radiosurgery technology enables dramatically shortened treatment times. We offer trials that combine radiotherapy with immunotherapy which are also available to patients with metastatic cancer.
"Dr Hu listened when other wrote my symptoms as benign . He resolved all my issues and I am thankful for his skills"
"From my first visit for prostate cancer treatment eighteen months ago, to today she has been professional, which is to say on time, clear, thorough,and kind. I always feel she is looking at me as a whole person, not just a compilation of symptoms. She is always fully engaged. Her deep knowledge of her field, including the latest developments is apparent without any arrogance. She is the most accessible doctor I have ever encountered. I count myself very lucky to have found her."
"When I was diagnosed with prostate cancer I decided to go to a major NYC hospital for treatment vs. local CT hospital near where I live. A great decision. I "shopped" Weill Cornell vs. Memorial Sloan Kettering. Hands down the decision to go with Dr. Hu and the Weill Cornell team a good one. MSK felt like a cattle car. The Weill Cornell experience was top shelf from start to finish. And Dr. Hu is a rock star robotic surgeon who knows how to communicate with his patients."
