Thoracic Surgery

St. Clair Health provides advanced thoracic surgery, close to home to support patients through some of their most difficult times. Thoracic surgery focuses on the chest organs, including the heart, lungs, esophagus, and trachea. With new technological advances, it has increased the safety and availability of these complex surgical procedures. St. Clair’s thoracic surgery team works closely with medical oncologists and radiation oncologists affiliated with UPMC Hillman Cancer Center, radiologists, pathologists, and nurse navigators. Frequent collaborative discussions occur with this team of experts to help guide patient care and treatment through every step.
