TMHPO Department of Surgery

Thoracic Surgery

The TMHPO Department of Surgery is gaining international recognition for its revolutionary breakthroughs in treating thoracic disease.

Among the first of its kind in the United States, we offer patients an unparalleled combination of state-of-the-art technology, innovative clinical research protocols, a multidisciplinary team of physicians and minimally invasive techniques to diagnose and treat lung, mediastinal, and esophageal disease.

Our highly-specialized thoracic surgery team treats a high volume of patients and has surgical expertise in virtually every thoracic condition. We are dedicated to providing a comprehensive approach focused on the prevention, early diagnosis and treatment of (non-cardiac) diseases of the chest. Our staff works closely with allied health professionals, nurses, oncologists, and pathologists to provide the highest quality care to our patients.

Methodist's unique surgical suite is equipped to handle open surgeries, video-assisted surgeries, and bronchial or endo-esophageal procedures simultaneously. This hybrid system represents the future of thoracic disease treatment, combining a full line of thoracic imaging capabilities with a fully equipped, sterile operating room.
