Dr. Amie Kent is a Clinical Assistant Professor in the Department of Cardiothoracic Surgery at NYU Grossman School of Medicine and Associate Program Director for the Cardiothoracic Surgery Residency Program at NYU Langone Health. Her post-graduate training was completed at Northwell Health in both general surgery and cardiothoracic surgery, with a year of training spent at Lenox Hill Hospital in Advanced Minimally Invasive Robotic Thoracic Oncology.
As highlighted in her nomination by Alexandrea Jared, PA:
“Dr. Amie Kent is a phenomenal thoracic surgeon. She is described by my team as the “type of doctor I would want my family to have.” She has helped pioneer robotic surgery at Bellevue Hospital NYC, and was the first thoracic surgeon to perform robotic lung resection at Manhattan VA Hospital. She takes care of EVERY aspect of her patients’ health and meticulously does not let one detail go amiss. On top of her many responsibilities, she is also working hard to start a lung cancer screening program for NYC’s Bellevue Hospital patients. She deserves this nomination and so much more.”
