Appointments: (646) 962-9600
The LeFrak Center for Robotic Surgery is home to a partnership between the most technologically-advanced surgical robots and the most experienced and dedicated surgical team. The Center is led by the internationally renowned surgeon, Dr. Jim C. Hu.
Our patient approach is on a dedicated and individual basis. Our clinical staff will provide a clear and compassionate guide for all possible treatment paths.
We meet many of our patients when they have been recently diagnosed with a complex urologic condition. Many of our patients will come to us scared and worried of what is to come. We provide un-paralleled support and follow-up care to ensure that our patients are safe and satisfied from the beginning to the end of their clinical care.
The state-of-the-art equipment and advanced technology offered at The LeFrak Center allow our physicians and patients to communicate about their condition with ease. Our procedure room includes a high definition monitor that allows patients undergoing prostate biopsies to visualize the MRI regions of interest fused to the prostate ultrasound image, as the physician does. Patient education of any risks and outcomes is key. We are proud to embrace robotically assisted and minimally invasive surgical practices that minimize the recovery time and post-op complications associated with traditional surgeries.
