Thoracic surgery involves the organs in the chest cavity, mainly the lungs.
CMC’s cardiothoracic surgeons treat many conditions within the chest, including:
- Lung cancer
- Lung nodules
- Mediastinal tumors
- Esophageal tumors
- Empyema and other pleural space diseases
Patients undergoing thoracic surgery are treated by a multi-disciplinary team that could include surgeons, pulmonologists, oncologists, radiologists, radiation therapists and pathologists. This coordinated approach gives you the best surgical outcomes, recovery and ongoing care.
