Thoracic Surgery

Thoracic surgery is the surgical subspecialty that deals with diseases of the chest (thorax), as well as the trachea, esophagus and stomach. Some of the more common conditions we treat include lung cancer, esophageal cancer, hiatus hernia (esophageal reflux), metastatic disease to the lungs and end-stage lung disease from any cause. Many of these conditions are treated using minimally invasive surgery.

We provide specialized care to patients through the following programs:

  • Esophageal Disease Program (EsoRAMP).
  • Interventional Thoracic Surgery Program.
  • Mesothelioma Multidisciplinary Program.
  • Toronto Chronic Thromboembolic Pulmonary Hypertension (CTEPH) Program.
