Philosophy Of Care

My goal is to create a patient-centered culture, with personalized approach to individual patient and family that are seeking thoracic surgical services. I will also aim to make patient safety a visible priority while providing high quality thoracic surgery service in collaboration with multidisciplinary input, including oncologist, pulmonologist, gastroenterologist, critical care service, anesthesia nursing and other support members. We will want to maintain continuous communication with our referring physicians and ancillary support, allowing us to practice continuity of care. We hope to bring and expand state of the art technology and surgical care that will elevate the institution and the members of the care team among peer organizations locally and nationally as leaders.
