Thoracic Surgery

The Division of Thoracic Surgery at Mount Sinai Beth Israel offers a range of advanced services, including minimally invasive and robotic surgeries for conditions of the lungs, esophagus, and mediastinum. As part of the Mount Sinai Health System and the Mount Sinai-National Jewish Health Respiratory Center, our patients also have access to the most comprehensive treatments available. Committed to delivering superb healthcare with a personalized and compassionate approach, our surgeons coordinate the efforts of anesthesiologists, oncologists, radiation oncologists, pulmonologists, and gastroenterologists to achieve the best possible outcome for each patient.

Thoracic Oncology

Our specialists in thoracic surgery, pulmonary medicine, and medical and radiation oncology work together to develop an individualized treatment plan for each patient based on the type and stage of cancer. We are experienced in advanced surgical techniques, such as video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS), robotic assisted surgery, and minimally invasive brachytherapy (radiation seed implants). We also offer supportive services in pain management, integrative medicine, reiki, yoga, acupuncture, social work, nutrition, and psychological support. These services are offered at two convenient locations at Mount Sinai-Union Square and The Blavatnik Family-Chelsea Medical Center at Mount Sinai.

Mount Sinai-National Jewish Health Respiratory Institute 

We work with the Mount Sinai-National Jewish Health Respiratory Institute, which is a partnership between the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, a top-ranked academic medical center in New York City, and National Jewish Health, the nation’s leading respiratory hospital based in Denver, Colorado. By combining the strengths of both the Icahn School of Medicine and National Jewish Health, we bring together leading expertise in diagnosing and treating all forms of respiratory illness and lung disease, including asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), interstitial lung disease (ILD), and bronchiectasis. Located at Mount Sinai-Union Square, the Respiratory Institute creates new options for patients in New York City and the surrounding region.
