Surgeons joining Dr. Vazzana to provide services at St. John’s are Brendon M. Stiles, MD, Professor and Chief, Thoracic Surgery and Surgical Oncology, Department of Cardiothoracic & Vascular Surgery, Montefiore Einstein, and Associate Director, Surgical Services, Montefiore Einstein Cancer Center, and Maureen P. McEvoy, MD, Breast Surgeon and Assistant Professor, Department of Surgery, Montefiore Einstein.
While the partnership has been a work in progress for some time, “It’s really starting to take off,” Dr. Vazzana said. “We’re increasing case numbers, and complexity of cases is increasing as well. The hospital is expanding to keep up with the pace and is increasing its ICU coverage as they build a robust general surgery practice there.”
The surgical team joins Montefiore Einstein cardiologists, gynecologists and others who also are providing inpatient and outpatient services at St. John’s Riverside.
