Thoracic Cancers

30-Day Mortality for Lobectomy
Taking out a lobe of the lung to remove a lung cancer is major surgery. The best measure of how carefully patients are evaluated for the surgery and taken care of afterwards is the 30-day mortality rate after surgery. These outcomes at CCCNY over the last 8 years are better than all comparison groups.

Risk-Adjusted Combined Morbidity/Mortality for Esophagectomy
Esophagectomy is a complex procedure required to treat one of the most rapidly increasing cancers in the US, esophageal cancer. At CCCNY, our surgical team is composed of highly trained specialists who collaborate closely on the management of esophageal cancer. At CCCNY members of the Society of Thoracic Surgeons (STS) have reported their excellent results to the voluntary quality measurement program of the STS. We are preparing a more extensive database for the near future.

Reducing the Average Length of Stay for Major Thoracic Procedures at Mount Sinai St. Luke's Roosevelt
We developed a program that begins to get our patients moving while they are still in the ICU, keeps them moving at least twice daily once they move to the regular floor and pushes them to climb stairs, not just walk. The results have been healthier patients and earlier discharges to home. We are extending this approach to our teams at Beth Israel.
