Dr. Robert Cerfolio, director of the Lung Cancer Center, part of our Perlmutter Cancer Center, comments on robotic approaches to lung cancer: “The ability to do minimally invasive surgery is going to change the entire ballgame for treating lung cancer, without just ablating it and not taking any part of the lung. I had some patients go home the same day of a lobectomy.” Click the 🔗 in our bio ⬆️ to learn more about our lung cancer care.

This World Ovarian Cancer Day, we’re celebrating Roberta! After Roberta, 80, developed a gastrointestinal obstruction, her endocrinologist Dr. Paul Glassman recommended she see gynecologist oncologist Dr. Douglas Levine, who diagnosed her with advanced stage ovarian cancer. After chemotherapy, Dr. Levine successfully performed surgery to remove the remaining tumor as well as Roberta’s ovaries, fallopian tubes, and the omentum—a thin fold of abdominal tissue that lines the abdomen. Roberta has now been in remission for more than a year. “The nurses, nutritionists, and social workers are the best part about Perlmutter Cancer Center. The doctors care about their patients and they made going through this easy,” says Roberta. “I’m 80 and I’m alive. Thanks to my doctors and nurses at NYU Langone, I conquered this.” Click the 🔗 in our bio ⬆️ to learn more about our ovarian cancer care.

Prolonged hand weakness led 66-year-old Queens resident Thomas Mole to seek answers. He saw spine surgeon Dr. John Bendo, who determined that he had a pinched nerve in his neck, which required surgery to correct. Thomas had a successful spinal fusion procedure last April, and is recovering well. “It was the confidence Dr. Bendo exuded that put me at ease. The way he approached my case, I knew surgery was the best option for me in order to avoid even worse complications in the future.” Click the 🔗 in our bio ⬆️ to learn more about our Spine Center.
