Dr. Richard Lazzaro

Congratulations to Dr. Richard Lazzaro of Lenox Hill Hospital (Northwell Health Network) in New York on attaining accreditation as a Master Surgeon in Robotic Surgery. In 2018, Dr. Lazzaro made medical history by being the first surgeon in the world to perform minimally invasive robotic surgery on a patient with tracheobronchomalacia (TBM), a debilitating condition that is treated historically through open surgery. Today, Dr. Lazzaro leads one of the world’s largest TBM programs, helping patients breathe easy and recover faster. Watch the video to learn more about this remarkable surgeon.

“Being a surgeon is not just my job; it’s my life’s passion. It brings me great joy to help other people.” -Dr. Richard Lazzaro
