Yale Medicine Thoracic Surgery offers unparalleled experience in the treatment and management of cancers of the lung, esophagus, thymus, chest wall, motility issues of the esophagus, and other cancerous and noncancerous conditions.

We harness the latest diagnostic technologies and surgical techniques, including those used in only a handful of locations worldwide. The majority of our surgeries are performed using minimally invasive procedures, even for complex cases that would otherwise require open surgery. Our expertise ensures that, whenever possible, our patients experience shorter hospital stays and less postoperative discomfort.

Our physicians and nursing staff are committed to providing safe and compassionate care.
