Letter from the Director of the Division

Thank you for taking the time to learn about the exciting developments that are happening in the NYU Division of Thoracic Surgery. As a young division, we are working to build a program that you and your loved ones can turn to for up-to-the-minute surgical and non-surgical therapies for chest diseases.

Our mission is to replace your anxiety about treatment with complete confidence in your caregivers. Our skilled team includes five surgeons, two nurse practitioners, a research coordinator, two administrative assistants, and PhDs in the New York Thoracic Laboratory. We are a compassionate and efficient resource in your time of need.

Through partnerships with medical and radiation oncologists at the state-of-the-art NYU Clinical Cancer Center, we help ensure that your journey from treatment to cure is personal, informative, and filled with options that other institutions may not offer.

If you have a non-malignant condition, our pulmonary and gastrointestinal partners will help you consider all the newest options for less invasive management and treatment.

As the director of this effort, I invite you to call or email me personally with your questions.

Dr. Harvey Pass
Director, NYU Division of Thoracic Surgery
