At Yale Thoracic Surgery, we understand that surgery of the chest region can seem frightening. Our surgeons and team members are devoted to providing you with the support you need, in part, through detailed answers and by thoroughly explaining what you can expect before, during, and after the surgery. It is important to know that the majority of our surgeries are performed using minimally invasive techniques, even for complex cases that would otherwise require open surgery. Overall, because we use minimally invasive procedures and leading-edge surgical technology, our patients experience shorter hospital stays and recover more quickly.
Our team of surgeons and multidisciplinary specialists offer unparalleled experience in treatment and management of cancers of the lung, esophagus, thymus, chest wall and mediastinum, motility issues of the esophagus, and other cancerous and non-cancerous conditions. Our surgeons are highly skilled at performing the most sophisticated procedures, including those that are used in just a handful of locations worldwide, and our evidence-based approach to medicine assures that you receive the best possible chance at a healthy future.
As faculty of Yale School of Medicine Department of Surgery, our surgeons are active leaders in their fields of research and practice. Their clinical and translational research and publications have helped create new diagnostic and treatment strategies and advanced surgical techniques for cancerous and non-cancerous conditions of the thoracic region.
Our surgeons see patients and perform surgical procedures at Smilow Cancer Hospital at Yale-New Haven. Please call 203.200.5864 to schedule an appointment.
