Advanced surgical treatments for lung, esophagus and other chest cancers

The Thoracic Surgery Clinic at UW Medical Center offers a comprehensive approach to the prevention and treatment of all diseases of the chest, including lung and esophageal cancers, lung nodules, esophageal perforation, mediastinal tumors, pleural-based tumors and malignancies and chest wall deformities and trauma.

Our surgeons are recognized for providing the best care and results for our patients. They are some of the most experienced in using minimally invasive procedures and technologies, including video-assisted thoracic surgery (VATS) and robotic-assisted technology.

For our cancer patients, our thoracic surgeons work closely with medical and radiation oncologists to offer holistic care. The UW Medicine and Seattle Cancer Care Alliance lung cancer program includes prevention, early detection and surveillance and the most effective treatments available for those with a diagnosis. As part of treatment, patients may be eligible for clinical research trials and benefit from the breakthrough research of our partner, the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center.

Our goal is to provide personalized treatment, working with you and your family to present all available options, and to answer any questions about your condition.
