Surgery

Mount Sinai St. Luke's responds with compassion and sensitivity to our patients, offering the finest medical and surgical treatment.

Conveniently located on the Upper West Side of Manhattan, we have a well-known tradition of surgical excellence —St. Luke’s surgeons performed many historic “firsts.”

We can help with diagnosis, treatment, management, and surgical intervention of disease. Our experience includes cancerous (malignant) and non-cancerous (benign) tumors. We can also help if your condition affects one or more parts of your body, or if your cancer returns. We use advanced minimally invasive and traditional open surgical procedures. Our goal is to help you preserve your quality of life.

Vascular Surgery

Vascular surgeons specialize in treating blood vessel diseases. Your blood vessels--arteries carrying oxygen-rich blood and veins carrying blood back to the heart--are the roadways of your circulatory system. Without smoothly flowing blood, your body cannot function. Conditions such as hardening of the arteries can create “traffic jams” in your circulatory system. They obstruct the flow of blood throughout your body. We can treat many vascular problems with medication or exercise. Your surgeon will work with you to help you understand all your options.

You are at the center of all we do. We offer respectful care and consistent communication through every phase of diagnosis, treatment, and follow-up care.
