Rami K. Daya, MD
Hematologist/oncologist Rami K. Daya, MD, will lead a team of cancer experts at New York University (NYU)/Langone Perlmutter Cancer Center’s new multidisciplinary, ambulatory location in Sunset Park, Brooklyn. As Director of Medical Oncology at NYU Langone Hospital–Brooklyn, he will oversee all cancer treatment at the hospital as well as in the ambulatory location.
The incidence of breast, colorectal, and lung cancers has been increasing in Brooklyn, and the need for convenient, high-quality, coordinated care in the borough is growing. Dr. Daya will lead efforts to develop new patient screening programs for early detection and prevention. Persons in Brooklyn will have access to the resources and technology of NYU’s Perlmutter Cancer Center, a National Cancer Institute–designated comprehensive cancer center.
The new outpatient center in Sunset Park expands the capabilities of Perlmutter Cancer Center and doubles its capacity to treat patients in Brooklyn with the same level of care provided at its Manhattan location. Other services at the new center include blood transfusion, a pharmacy for preparing treatments on-site, pathology services, genetic counseling, nutrition, and social services.
