For a complete description of our services, please visit our web sites:
We bring together a multidisciplinary team of healthcare professionals who collaborate in one of the nation's top hospitals to manage the full range of thoracic disorders — from the routine to the most complex. Thoracic surgeons, medical and radiation oncologists, pulmonologists, gastroenterologists, radiologists, pathologists, neurologists, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, dedicated thoracic intensive care nurses, respiratory therapists, speech therapists, and social workers work as one team to deliver seamless, high-quality care to our patients before, during, and after their hospital stay. Patients have access to the full complement of care, including the services of other departments who can treat other health disorders as well as rehabilitation services (such as respiratory therapy, physical therapy, nutritionists, and swallowing support) to get them back to a healthy level of function.
The thoracic surgeons at Weill Cornell use minimal access approaches to diagnose and treat:
Video-thoracoscopic Procedures (such as navigational bronchoscopy) and robotic lobectomy.
Video-thoracoscopic Procedures and Laparoscopy
Laparoscopic Nissen fundoplication
Endoscopic thoracic sympathectomy (ETS)
