Center for Advanced Medicine

The Zucker Nasal and Sinus Center is on the grounds of the Long Island Jewish Medical Center and Steven and Alexandra Cohen Children's Medical Center of New York. Directly across the street is the newly opened Center For Advanced Medicine or CFAM, which includes state-of-the-art outpatient radiology department as well as the ambulatory surgical pavilion. 

Depending on the type of surgery and the specific medical requirements of the patient, any one of these three facilities will be utilized to the patient’s benefit. Adults who require special needs and have special medical conditions can be safely operated upon in the main hospital where they can stay overnight to be monitored. Children who have special needs such as cystic fibrosis, pulmonary disease, or other congenital or cardiac concerns can be safely operated upon at the Steven and Alexandra Cohen Children's Medical Center of New York . A full pediatric anesthesia department will take care of all of their specialized needs, as well as the special nursing that may be required and found only in a Children’s Hospital of this stature. 

For patients who are essentially healthy or have only minor medical problems but require nasal and/or sinus surgery, ambulatory surgery is often an option. The ambulatory surgery center is a modern, state-of-the-art facility specifically geared toward children and adults who are going home the same day. The space is light and airy with comfortable waiting areas, televisions, children play areas, and games. The overall experience for both patients and families is overwhelmingly superior.
