Who we are

General thoracic surgery treats conditions such as lung diseases, tumors and cancers (benign and malignant), esophageal and tracheal problems, as well as gastroesophageal reflux. Our surgeons use minimally invasive techniques such as robotic surgery and video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) for the vast majority—90 percent—of our patients. The advantages of these techniques include quicker recovery, reduced risk of infection and less scarring. 

We care for a large number of patients with thoracic issues, which means extensive experience for our thoracic surgeons, and excellent outcomes for those we treat.
