Center for Thoracic and Esophageal Diseases

We offer expertise and services available at only a handful of hospitals in the nation to successfully diagnose and treat lung and esophageal conditions, including malignant and benign tumors.

Our multidisciplinary approach allows patients to benefit from the insight and skill of experts across specialties and disciplines, including nationally recognized thoracic surgeons, pulmonologists, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, pathologists and radiologists. The result is seamless, comprehensive care.

Our services also includes a Lung Cancer Screening and Pulmonary Nodule Program to provide evaluation and ongoing monitoring to those most at risk of cancer.

We are a national leader in using robotic and minimally-invasive techniques to maximize outcomes while shortening recovery times. Here, our experts routinely perform today’s most advanced diagnostic and therapeutic options—such as electromagnetic navigational bronchoscopy, robotic lung resections, and endobronchial ultrasound (EBUS)—allowing us to drive improvements and innovations in care.
