About Our Program
Our team is made up of highly skilled surgeons who are comfortable working on both sides of the diaphragm and consequently approach the chest and foregut as a unit rather than dividing problems between those in the chest and those in the abdomen. This gives you better care that focuses on you and what you need to achieve optimum health.
We specialize in minimally invasive surgical approaches including:
- VATS (video-assisted assisted thoracoscopic surgery) – surgery that uses a small video camera placed in your chest via small incisions to minimize trauma and recovery time.
- Laparoscopic Surgery – abdominal surgery that uses a small video camera placed in your abdomen via small incisions to minimize trauma and recovery time.
- Robotic Surgery – surgery that uses very small tools attached to a robotic arm. Your surgeon controls the robotic arms.
Our thoracic experts are part of a multidisciplinary team, which includes specialists from oncology, radiology, pulmonology and gastroenterology. In this way, we can provide you with the most thorough and comprehensive care for your condition.
You will also benefit from the support of physician assistants, nurse navigators, experienced medical assistants and medical secretaries. These compassionate, well-trained professionals ensure that your care is coordinated and communicated to you every step of the way on your journey towards improved health and wellbeing.
