Committed to "Patients First"
Our goal is simple: Timely, high-quality health care, while avoiding any unnecessary interventions. We pride ourselves on superior outcomes with each case in mind.
The Thoracic Surgery Division at Hackensack University Medical Center specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of diseases and conditions of the chest. Our highly-skilled team of surgeons focuses on surgery within the chest for diseases of the lung, mediastinum (the area in the chest between the lungs that contains all the organs except the lungs), trachea, esophagus, diaphragm, and chest wall.
Here, our three board-certified surgeons draw on all the resources of Hackensack University Medical Center, a world-class hospital, to offer the most advanced treatment for thoracic conditions in the state. Our philosophy of putting patients first means that we are committed to providing you with accessible care, along with the most advanced and highest quality care.
