Thoracic Surgery at Penn Medicine University City:
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 Medicine University City, a facility of 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.

Practice Philosophy
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.
