About Us

At Northwell Health, we're raising the standard of cancer care—and New Yorkers agree. That's why more people in New York choose us for lung cancer surgery than any other health system in the state, according to 2017 data from Statewide Planning and Research Cooperative System (SPARCS) for Queens and Long Island.

We also perform more thoracic surgeries than any other health system in the region.* So if you or someone you love needs treatment for thoracic issues such as lung diseases, cancers and tumors (benign and malignant), esophageal and tracheal problems, as well as gastroesophageal reflux, you can trust you’re in the most experienced hands.

We are leaders in minimally invasive robotic surgery—a technique used on 90% of our patients—giving our thoracic surgeons better range of motion and unparalleled precision during even the most complex procedures. It means smaller incisions, less scarring and pain, and a quicker return to doing what you love—with the ones you love. And that’s something you can feel good about.
