Thoracic Surgery at Presbyterian:
The Highest Standard of Thoracic Surgical Care
It takes skilled thoracic specialists to surgically
treat the area of the body that encloses the lungs,
heart, esophagus and other structures. Our experienced
team in the Division of Thoracic Surgery at Penn Presbyterian
Medical Center possesses the competence and expertise
to address a full range of thoracic conditions.
Our team offers sophisticated diagnostic and
treatment resources administered by a staff of
nationally renowned surgeons. Our goal is to improve
our patients’ length and quality of life.
Our Division has access to the staff, facilities
and pioneering research protocols to provide patients
with the most advanced treatments available. To
ensure continuity of care, we maintain ongoing
communications with our referring physicians.
We treat every patient with the same compassion
and intensity as though they were family. We feel
strongly that every patient should be treated
with a team approach. This belief extends not
only to the members of our own team, but also
to the patient’s primary care physician
and all appropriate specialists.
We feel that the treatment of each patient should
be individualized. Sometimes a routine strategy
is best and sometimes resources must be marshaled
in an unconventional approach in order to achieve
the best results for a patient. We pride ourselves
in being able to “think outside the box”
if we can help someone by doing so.
