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 surgeons are specifically trained in the latest techniques for the diagnosis and treatment of diseases, disorders and injuries of the organs inside the thorax. Just some of our areas of expertise include lung cancer, cancer of the esophagus and chest wall. Thoracic outlet surgery is very active at MedStar Good Samaritan and we have been a choice referral in Maryland and from several surrounding states.
Our technology, as well as our approach to treatment, is tailored to the specific needs of each individual patient. We offer the greatest level of comfort and minimally invasive techniques, which reduce recovery time and minimize hospital stay.
