At Hackensack University Medical Center, our thoracic surgeons treat lung cancer as well as a range of complex benign diseases and conditions of the lung. In addition to treating primary thoracic tumors, we treat patients whose cancer has metastasized from other locations to the lungs, chest wall or mediastinum.
The Latest Techologies and Surgical Techniques
Our board-certified, fellowship-trained thoracic surgeons are experts in the latest minimally-invasive and robotic surgical techniques to diagnose and treat lung cancer, thoracic conditions, and complex airway problems. This team of experts are highly-skilled in their field, and are committed to bringing innovative, minimally invasive techniques to patients.
Each patient’s surgical plan is designed to meet his or her needs based on the individual disease and personal preferences. Our goal is always to provide you with personalized care, and the type of surgery and treatment that will give you the best possible outcomes.

There is often more than one way to treat lung, esophageal, or thoracic malignancies, depending on the individual and his or her disease. Our affiliation with The John Theurer Cancer Center allows us to provide the most current and state-of-the-art treatment options for every patient who comes to us with a diagnosis of cancer.
Experienced Team, World Class Care
When it comes to selecting the right treatment approach, experience counts. Our thoracic surgeons, each with years of clinical experience, are actively involved in evaluating patients with cancers of the chest and participating in the treatment planning and decision-making process for these complex and often challenging cases. Often, the solution will be a combination of surgery and additional treatment modalities. Our surgeons have the tools and expertise to evaluate patients with suspicious abnormalities and bring in the appropriate resources to devise and implement a treatment plan. As your partner on the journey, we are here to help you achieve your best possible outcomes using everything we have.
