Thoracic surgery is the treatment and repair of the organs found within the thorax, a.k.a. the chest. This includes the lungs, esophagus, trachea, pleura, mediastinum, diaphragm and chest wall. Thoracic surgery includes the pre-operative, operative, and post-operative care of the acquired and hereditary conditions within the chest. Our goal is to make your care as simple and as understandable as possible.
