Working Collaboratively with
the Cardiac Surgeons

Thoracic Surgery works collaboratively to provide high-quality, comprehensive diagnosis and surgical care to patients with diseases of the lungs, trachea, esophagus, diaphragm, chest wall and mediastinum. All diagnostic testing is conducted on site, and to ensure the best possible treatment, each case is reviewed and evaluated by a multidisciplinary team.

Minimally invasive techniques result in less pain, fewer complications, minimal scarring and quicker recovery.
