Biography

A native New Yorker, Dr. Todd Weiser joined the Division of Thoracic Surgery at White Plains Hospital Center in 2011 as Director of Thoracic Surgery, bringing state-of-the-art Thoracic surgery to the people of Westchester County and creating a destination service for the highest quality thoracic care.  Dr. Weiser’s main clinical interest is the surgical treatment of diseases and conditions of the chest and chest wall, specializing in surgical management of the trachea (airway) and minimally invasive treatment of lung cancer.

Dr. Weiser believes, “There is no need to add the burden of travel in order to receive the best possible cancer treatment.  No institution in the area is better suited to deliver patients the outcomes they deserve.”  Dr. Weiser’s expertise is not limited to treating patients with cancers of the chest however.  Currently, he is the only surgeon in New York performing video-assisted, minimally invasive (VATS) implantation of diaphragmatic pacemakers in patients with spinal cord injury and muscular dystrophies, relieving these patients of their dependence upon ventilators to breathe.

Dr. Weiser’s work on lung cancer immunology at the National Cancer Institute has been presented at national meetings and published in peer-reviewed journals. In addition, he has authored chapters on the topics of the surgical management of tracheal diseases and airway obstruction in two authoritative textbooks, Thoracic Surgery and Sabiston’s & Spencer’s Surgery of the Chest.
