Thoracic surgery is a highly-specialized discipline dedicated to treating a wide range of conditions in the thorax (chest). This includes diseases in the lungs, heart, chest wall, diaphragm, esophagus, trachea, pleura (membranous structure that wraps around the lungs and lines the chest wall), and mediastinum (the central portion of the chest between the lungs).

Our patients benefit from an excellent team of experienced thoracic surgeons, who use a minimally-invasive approach for a wide array of complex procedures, tailored to the specific needs of each individual patient.

Our thoracic surgery team has practices in Washington, D.C. and Baltimore. Please click below to learn more about each location.
