A key part of providing compassionate clinical care is research. That's why we are committed to state-of-the-art surgical management and to developing novel treatment strategies using clinical trials. We also use the resources at the New York Thoracic Surgery Laboratory housed at Bellevue Hospital to launch investigations at the gene or protein level. Through studies like these we make clinically relevant "bench to bedside" discoveries in early detection and develop targeted therapies.
We also provide the newest in pioneering treatments, including:
novel diagnostic and staging modalities including endobronchial ultrasound
novel endobronchial treatment strategies including photodynamic therapy
use of stents to relieve blockages of the windpipe and esophagus
investigation of the use of replaceable stents in the windpipe and esophagus
