NorthShore’s Division of Thoracic Surgery delivers high quality specialized care for a wide array of thoracic conditions. This includes both benign diseases such as a collapsed lung or problems swallowing and malignant diseases such as lung and esophageal cancer.
Thoracic cancer conditions require a multipronged approach. Our multidisciplinary team of thoracic surgeons, medical oncologists, pulmonologists, radiologists, radiation oncologists and other specialists meet weekly at tumor boards, where we work in tandem to discuss each patient’s case. Our team of thoracic surgeons partner with medical oncologists in the Kellogg Cancer Center to develop coordinated treatment plans that provide each cancer patient the very best personalized care.
