Thoracic Surgery

The Thoracic Surgery department at UM Upper Chesapeake Health specializes in the surgical treatment of disorders of the chest, particularly the lungs and esophagus. Surgery may be performed when an abnormality or condition has been identified that requires removal or biopsy and is frequently part of the treatment for early stage lung cancers. Through our partnership with the University of Maryland Medical System, we continually find ways to improve the quality of patients’ lives through innovative treatments.
