The Department of Thoracic Surgery provides comprehensive, expert care for patients with cancer of the esophagus and other related diseases. Treatment of esophageal diseases requires an interdisciplinary approach that draws on various medical specialties. At BMC, we are fortunate to have highly skilled physicians in all of the disciplines needed to provide comprehensive, quality care including medical oncology, radiation oncology, thoracic surgery, gastroenterology, pathology, pulmonary medicine and radiology.

We believe that cancer treatment requires a collaborative, team approach, not only among your doctors, nurses and support service providers, but with you and your family as full participants in your care. We understand that a cancer diagnosis challenges patients and families in many ways and we are committed to meeting those challenges with you.

We will take care of you through all phases of your care from diagnosis, to treatment, to follow-up care, and you will always be treated with dignity and respect by all of the members of your care team.
