Welcome to the Division of Thoracic Surgery. We focus on the chest, trachea, esophagus and stomach. Some of the more common conditions in which we specialize include lung cancer, esophageal cancer, and end-stage lung disease. We treat many of these conditions using minimally invasive surgery. Our goal is to help you and your family cope successfully with your diagnosis and treatment. We will consult with you at all stages of your treatment, so that you know what to expect and how to deal with each step along the way.
