Thoracic Surgery

Our thoracic surgeons are leaders in their field who treat a wide range of thoracic conditions and diseases. Whenever possible, we perform minimally invasive surgeries, which result in smaller incisions and shorter hospital stays and recovery times.

Conditions we treat include:

  • Lung cancer
  • Benign lung tumors
  • Emphysema
  • Esophageal cancer (throat cancer)
  • Benign esophageal diseases (including benign tumors and strictures)
  • Gastroesophageal reflux (GERD) (heartburn)
  • Mediastinal tumors and diseases (including myasthenia gravis)
  • Mesothelioma
  • Pleural diseases (including pneumothorax, infections, and pleural effusions)
  • Chest wall tumors
  • Hyperhidrosis (excess sweating)
  • Diaphragm paralysis
  • Airway narrowing
  • Achalasia (swallowing disorder)

Procedures offered include:
