Thoracic surgeons are committed to the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of diseases in the chest cavity. They perform surgery on the lungs, esophagus and other organs and tissues in the chest.
At Cape Cod Healthcare, our thoracic surgeons are experts in their field, with the advanced training and experience you’d find at Boston hospitals. They collaborate with specialists from other disciplines to ensure your care is tailored to your specific situation. Our Regional Cancer Network physicians are highly skilled and trained, and use the latest technology to make sure you get the best treatment.

Minimally Invasive Surgical Options
We offer many minimally invasive treatment options, which means you experience less pain and recover more quickly. Some of our thoracic procedures are done using the da Vinci® robotic surgery system, including pulmonary wedge resection and pulmonary lobectomy. You’ll find more information about robotic-assisted thoracic surgery at our online Health Library.
