Lung Cancer Care at Mount Sinai South Nassau

Chest and Lung Cancer Expertise and Experience

At Mount Sinai South Nassau, if you need chest surgery for cancer or other conditions of the thorax (chest), our experts can often avoid the need for traditional surgery. Our cardiothoracic surgeons are experienced in using advanced tools that offer the precision of a computer plus advantages such as a shorter hospital stay and shorter recovery. We also use video-assisted equipment with similar advantages.

Some procedures we offer include:

  • Lobectomy, removal of a lobe of the lung
  • Wedge resection, removal of part of the lung
  • Thoracotomy (pleurotomy), or surgery involving the chest wall 
  • Video-assisted thoracic surgery (VATS)
