Our team of cardiac and thoracic surgeons brings advanced treatment to our region. Thoracic surgeons treat the lungs, esophagus and other organs in the chest. We use minimally-invasive surgery techniques and enhanced recovery after surgery (ERAS) protocols which can lead to less pain and shorter recovery.
