The Division of Thoracic Surgery provides diagnostic services and treatment for patients with diseases of the chest or thorax, especially the lungs.
Einstein’s thoracic surgeons focus on minimally invasive techniques that reduce a patient’s pain and discomfort and encourage faster recovery. These techniques are safer and have helped expand the treatment options for patients, especially those with advanced age or poor lung function. Such advancements, along with the development of video-assisted thoracic surgery (VATS), have helped us meet the growing needs of our expanding patient population.
