Welcome, doc

Put out the mat for Dr. Prashant Sinha on his appointment as the new chief of surgery at NYU Langone Hospital–Brooklyn, (formerly Lutheran Medical Center). Dr. Sinha is an expert in minimally invasive surgery and a leader in quality improvement initiatives. He takes the reins of a department that has already achieved notable success in rapidly expanding the complexity of surgical procedures it performs.

In addition to developing new programs, and increasing ambulatory services, Dr. Sinha will also manage the hospital’s surgical residency training program.

Dr. Sinha is associate professor in the Department of Surgery at NYU School of Medicine and has been on staff since 2009.

“I know firsthand how important it is to work together with other medical disciplines. For a patient to have a successful surgical outcome, their other health issues need to be addressed. Safety is our No. 1 priority,” said Dr. Sinha.

“Brooklyn residents deserve the highest quality of care that they can receive in their own neighborho­od,” said Dr. Bret Rudy, executive hospital director and senior vice president of NYU Langone Hospital–Brooklyn of Dr. Sinha’s appointment.

Standing O wholeheartedly agrees.

NYU Langone Hospital–Brooklyn [150 55th St. at First Avenue in Sunset Park, (718) 630–7000].
