Robotic Surgery for Airway, Breathing & Lung Conditions
NYU Langone’s Robotic Surgery Center is one of the few sites in the United States that offers robotic thoracic surgery. Physicians from around the nation travel here to observe our surgeons use the newest and most-advanced techniques and minimally invasive approaches to managing complicated airway, breathing, and lung conditions.
Conditions we treat include:
- bronchogenic cysts
- esophageal cancer
- esophageal duplication cysts
- lung nodules
- mediastinal cysts
- non-small cell lung cancer
- small cell lung cancer
- thymus cysts
Our robotic lung surgery program has grown from our surgeons’ pioneering work with the minimally invasive thoracic surgical technique known as VATS, or video-assisted thoracic surgery, for lung cancer.
In addition, we perform robotic biopsies of suspicious lung nodules to assess whether they are benign or cancerous.
Robotic surgery for airway, breathing, and lung conditions is performed by the following doctors:
