Lungs & Chest

Innovative options for the most challenging conditions.

Cardiac & Thoracic Surgery Associates is one of only two hospitals in southern Colorado with a dedicated Thoracic surgeon who specializes in non-cardiac chest surgery. We specialize in general thoracic surgery, which includes surgical therapy for a wide variety of both malignant and benign diseases within chest, and thoracic oncology, which is a special focus on malignant disease. We offer all aspects of surgical care for patients with diseases of the lungs, trachea, esophagus, chest wall, pleural space, and mediastinum. Many thoracic surgery procedures can be done using minimally invasive or robotic techniques. Some procedures are done with standard open surgical techniques, while others require extremely complex surgical planning and skills, and are only performed by dedicated, specially trained thoracic surgeons.
