Program Description

Thoracic surgeons at Rush provide comprehensive care for tumors of the lung, esophagus, mediastinum, pleura, trachea and diaphragm. The program offers a full range of minimally invasive and traditional approaches for the treatment of cancerous conditions such as:

  • Esophageal cancer
  • Malignant lung tumors and metastases
  • Pancoast tumors
  • Mesotheliomas
  • Malignant tumors of the mediastinum
  • Malignant tumors of the trachea

Surgeons in the program also participate in the Coleman Foundation Comprehensive Lung Cancer Clinic, an interdisciplinary program whose goal is to provide the most effective and gentlest care possible to each patient. Physicians work as a team with all the specialists involved in a patient’s care, meeting with patients and their families at one time to provide a comprehensive evaluation and treatment recommendation.


Clinical Team

The thoracic surgery program at Rush draws upon more than 70 years of combined experience in traditional thoraic surgery and more than 15 years of combined experience in leading-edge laparascopic surgery. Surgeons in the program are supported by a team of physician assistants and nurses with extensive experience working with cancer patients and their families. Learn more about the Thoracic Surgery Team.
