New York Hospital Queens is continuing its expansion of services throughout the Borough, adding a breast surgery practice in Middle Village to its ranks this week.
The hospital announced on April 15 that it has acquired the physician practice of Kap-Jae Sung, M.D., a surgeon who specializes in breast surgery. The practice is located at 66-83 70th St., Middle Village.
Sung has provided surgical care at the practice for five years and has been a member of the NYHQ staff for the last 15 years. A board certified surgeon, Sung is also a fellow of the American College of Surgery and a member of the American Society of Breast Surgeons.
Before he joined NYHQ, Sung was the chairman of the department of surgery at Saint John’s Queens Hospital and Mary Immaculate Hospital from 2008 to 2009. He was also the director of surgery at Saint John’s Queens Hospital and the director of breast surgery at Forest Hills Hospital, a member of North Shore-LIJ Health System.
Over the course of his career, he has performed procedures that include breast biopsies, the removal of breast tumors and mastectomies. His patients have access to all of the medical services at NYHQ as well, such as radiology, pathology, rehabilitation and more.
“The demand for breast surgery services has grown,” Stephen Mills, president and CEO of NYHQ, said. “We are thrilled to have Dr. Sung and his practice onboard to help NYHQ meet the needs of our community. Residents don’t have to leave the Borough to find a higher level of breast surgery services. They are available right here in Middle Village.”
