General thoracic surgery is a specialty focusing on surgical issues of the lungs and airway, diaphragm, great vessels, esophagus and chest wall. It’s a rapidly evolving specialty that provides both operative and consultative care for many diseases of the chest including lung cancer, esophageal conditions and gastroesophageal reflux.
Our surgeons perform state-of-the-art minimally invasive and robotic procedures, including robotic surgery and video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS). The surgeons and nurses on the thoracic team specialize solely in thoracic procedures and have completed a series of extensive training programs in general surgery, cardiovascular surgery, and thoracic surgery.
