After seeking care for a cough that wouldn’t quit, Genevieve Bomes of Milford, Mass., found herself facing surgery to remove a noncancerous tumor in her chest that was causing her symptoms. Her journey led her to thoracic surgeon Christina Williamson, MD, at Lahey Hospital & Medical Center, who removed the mass with tiny incisions and a state-of-the art surgical robot.

Joseph K of North Andover, MA

had surgery at Lahey performed by Dr. Elliot Servais to treat his lung cancer:

“I am delighted that I chose Lahey-Burlington over other premier Boston hospitals that I had researched extensively over the past few months… I knew I would be in good hands. This team was remarkably competent and could not have been kinder or more respectful to me and my family… They are truly dedicated people.”

Barbara C of Billerica, MA

had part of her lung removed at Lahey to treat her lung cancer:

“Dr. [Syed] Quadri made me feel like I was his only patient. He came and saw me every day. He has a wonderful aura and I felt very comfortable with him. That’s important.”
