The Emory General Thoracic Surgery Team

As full-time faculty members of Emory University School of Medicine, one of the nation's top institutions for biomedical education, research and patient care, our thoracic surgeons are uniquely qualified in the region to provide comprehensive, cutting-edge thoracic surgery services.

All of our thoracic surgeons are actively involved in national thoracic surgery organizations and regularly participate in clinical trials. In addition, they are all members of the Winship Cancer Institute of Emory University, the only National Cancer Institute (NCI) designated cancer center in Georgia.
