The NewYork-Presbyterian LeFrak Center for Robotic Surgery, in conjunction with Weill Cornell Medicine, is home to a partnership between the most technologically-advanced surgical robots available in New York City and the most experienced and dedicated surgical team based in the #1 hospital in NYC 17 years running. The Center is led by the internationally renowned surgeon, Dr. Jim C. Hu.

Our patient approach is on a dedicated and individual basis. Our clinical staff will provide a clear and compassionate guide for all possible treatment paths, and work to find the most minimally invasive options available for each patient.

We meet many of our patients across the tri-state area and beyond when they have been recently diagnosed with a complex urologic condition. Many of our patients will come to us scared and worried of what is to come. We provide un-paralleled support and follow-up care to ensure that our patients are safe and satisfied from the beginning to the end of their clinical care.

The state-of-the-art equipment and advanced technology offered at NewYork-Presbyterian LeFrak Center for Robotic Surgery enable Weill Cornell Medicine physicians and patients to communicate about their condition with ease. Our procedure room includes a high definition monitor that allows patients undergoing prostate biopsies to visualize the MRI regions of interest fused to the prostate ultrasound image, as the physician does. Patient education of any risks and outcomes is key. We are proud to embrace robotically assisted and minimally invasive surgical practices that minimize the recovery time and post-op complications associated with traditional surgeries.

Talking about Jim C. Hu, M.D., MPH

After significant research and due diligence in selecting a surgeon, I came under the care of Dr. Hu for a partial nephrectomy aimed at removing a suspected early stage renal cell carcinoma from my left kidney. At every significant juncture of the process, beginning with our first consultation through to my post-operative recovery, Dr. Hu exhibited a comforting balance of empathetically driven attentiveness to the particularities of my case and a perceptively laser-focused expertise as concerned the knowledge, skills and experiences that would be depended upon to successfully execute my procedure. Going on four years from the time of my surgery, I am grateful to have no signs of recurrence, healthy kidney function, and to be enjoying a happy life. I am confident that this auspicious outcome is most proximally attributable to Dr. Hu’s mastery of the state of the art medical science and technology applicable to my diagnosis wielded and vitalized by Dr. Hu’s personal intelligence, commitment, talent and virtuosity. I submit this review with great gratitude, a sincere wish for your future health and wellbeing, and an unqualified endorsement of Dr. Hu as your physician.
