Expert Thoracic Surgery

At Cardiothoracic Surgery Associates (CSA), our thoracic surgery team provides treatment for patients with lung and esophageal cancer and many other conditions that can exist within the chest. This might include abnormalities of the pleura, chest wall, mediastinum, or the diaphragm.

At CSA, we offer treatment for lung cancer, esophageal cancer, chest wall tumors and other thoracic malignancies and benign pleural and esophageal conditions. We coordinate with a highly specialized team of surgeons, pulmonologists, gastroenterologists, medical oncologists and radiation oncologists to make sure that your treatment plan that is best suited to you. Each patient is unique, so you will get the individualized care you need to help ensure the best possible outcomes for your unique diagnosis.

Our thoracic program can also offer minimally invasive thoracic surgery techniques for many benign thoracic conditions affecting the esophagus, such as achalasia, hiatal hernia and gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD).

Our Approach to Thoracic Surgery

We’re dedicated to using advanced therapies that reduce scarring and minimize recovery time, including laparoscopic procedures and video-assisted thoracic surgery (VATS). Although minimally invasive surgeries are available, sometimes open incisions must be used, but our team will review all possible options during each patient’s office visit. From diagnosis to treatment and recovery, our team will guide you through every step of the process with detailed explanations of possible procedures for your specific needs.

Patients also have access to cutting-edge clinical trials for lung and esophageal cancer through CSA’s partnerships with the Rocky Mountain Cancer Center and the Sarah Cannon Cancer Institute.
