As the Director of Thoracic Surgery and Thoracic Oncology and Medical Director for the Lung Screening Program at Maine Medical Center, I specialize in minimally invasive procedures in the treatment of thoracic diseases, including both benign and malignant diseases of the lung, esophagus, and pleura, along with the surgical treatment of lung and esophageal cancer as well as lung-sparing cancer surgery. As a past instructor of minimally thoracic procedures, I also have an interest in both benign and malignant diseases of the esophagus including reflux, hiatal hernia and esophageal motility disorders.
