A debilitating condition held 13-year-old Brianna back for most of her life. But Northwell not only performed surgery that made it possible for her to use a bionic arm, they also thought about how she should grow into her future prosthetics. 

When Gina was diagnosed with colon cancer
while pregnant, she faced the reality that
conventional surgery could harm her baby girl.
But with the precision of robotic surgery,
doctors were able to save them both.

Knowing how overwhelming aftercare instructions can be, especially after brain surgery, neurosurgeons created an intuitive streaming video system that allowed Kathy and her husband Mike to watch their past conversations, ensuring a smooth recovery. 

We're 100% devoted to raising the standard of health care.

We brought together world-class resources in prosthetics, aerospace and 3D printing to create a first-of-its-kind amphibious prosthetic leg—returning an injured veteran to the water so he could swim with his kids.

Yvonne Fleming, the woman with a bright smile and kind soul, became Long Island's first ever heart transplant recipient after being diagnosed with ischemic cardiomyopathy, a type of advanced heart failure.
