Thoracic Surgery and Oncology Clinic
U.S. News Best Hospitals

The Thoracic Surgery and Oncology Clinic has world-renowned thoracic surgeons that provide comprehensive care for patients with lung cancer and problems related to the lungs, chest and esophagus. Diagnostic procedures, ranging from endoscopy to major chest resection, are available.

Lung transplants are performed as single-lung, double-lung and heart-lung procedures. We provide both clinical and psychosocial assessment of potential transplant candidates, intensive care for the critically ill patient awaiting transplant, and lifelong post-transplant monitoring. Active support groups are available to patients and their families.
