The Division of Thoracic Surgery at Penn State Health Milton S. Hershey Medical Center treats patients with benign and malignant thoracic diseases. Our physicians offer an advanced level of expertise and provide care via endoscopic, minimally invasive, and complex open surgeries and interventions.
Our multidisciplinary team of thoracic surgeons and interventional pulmonologists — based in the region's premier academic medical center—has the medical, surgical, and support services needed to provide the most thorough care for our patients.
We streamline care by seeing patients jointly and working together on an individualized treatment plant for each patient. Throughout treatment, we emphasize ongoing communication with patients, families, and referring physicians.
