Dr. Pinsker has been associated with Montefiore for some 40 years, specializing in pulmonary function, bronchoscopy, pleural disease, and general pulmonary medicine. He was one of the original investigators in lung transplantation, both experimental and clinical. He is known throughout Montefiore for his high standards in teaching and patient care.
