Thoracic Surgery

UPMC Magee-Womens Hospital’s Thoracic Surgery Services program provides women and men of our region convenient access to a full spectrum of thoracic surgery services, as well as expert physicians working in an institution renowned for its minimally invasive surgery.

Thoracic surgery is the repair of organs located in the thorax, or chest. The thoracic cavity lies between the neck and the diaphragm, and contains the heart and lungs (cardiopulmonary system), the esophagus, trachea, pleura, mediastinum, chest wall, and diaphragm.

General thoracic surgery is a field that specializes in diseases of the lungs and esophagus. The field also encompasses accidents and injuries to the chest, esophageal disorders (esophageal cancer or esophagitis), lung cancer, lung transplantation, and surgery for emphysema.

Thoracic surgery is usually performed by a surgeon who specializes in either general or thoracic surgery.
