Expert Surgical Care for Multiple Conditions

Our thoracic surgeons provide leading-edge surgical care to patients with various conditions of the lungs, esophagus, trachea and mediastinum, such as:

  • Lung cancers, esophageal cancers and other types of cancers in the chest
  • Tumors of the thymus including cancer
  • Benign esophageal disease such as gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) and swallowing issues like achalasia and esophageal strictures
  • Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) including emphysema
  • Benign and malignant pleural disease
  • Other chest wall, rib and mediastinal disease

Our surgeons are nationally recognized as experts and proctors (teachers) in minimally invasive, VATS and robotic thoracic surgery.

Among the state-of-the-art procedures that we offer are robotic lobectomies for lung cancer and per-oral endoscopic myotomy (POEM), an endoscopic procedure to treat achalasia and other swallowing disorders.

Our surgeons participate in a multidisciplinary team that evaluates each patient as an individual with a specific condition that requires specific treatment. This multidisciplinary team involves pulmonologists, gastroenterologists, specialists in radiation therapy and specialists in medical management of cancer.

Also, our surgeons are heavily involved in education, training and development of their specialty.
