Cancerous Conditions

If you have been diagnosed with a thoracic cancer, you may feel frightened and overwhelmed about your disease, your options, and your prognosis. At Yale Thoracic Surgery, we take the time to answer all your questions and concerns in detail, providing you and your loved ones with heartfelt compassion and support throughout your treatment process. 

As a national leader in the treatment of thoracic cancers, we provide evidence-based medicine and the latest surgical and diagnostic technologies available. Our surgeons, all faculty of the Yale School of Medicine Department of Surgery, are at the forefront of both the treatment of thoracic cancers and the development of innovative treatment strategies. When eligible, patients with late-stage and complex cancers may participate in new and ongoing clinical trials. 

Our surgeons see patients at Smilow Cancer Hospital at Yale-New Haven, where they collaborate with other internationally recognized cancer care specialists, including diagnostic and interventional radiologists, pulmonologists, hepatologists, imaging specialists, and pathologists. Our multidisciplinary approach assures that our patients receive world-class, comprehensive cancer care with attention given to their physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being.
