Providing Expertise in Thoracic Surgery

Thoracic surgery is used to treat conditions involving the organs in your chest or in your chest wall itself. The most common diseases that require thoracic surgery are heart lesions, lung cancer, chest trauma, esophageal cancer and emphysema. Your primary care physician, cardiologist, pulmonologist or gastroenterologist will refer you to a thoracic surgeon if he or she thinks you need this type of treatment.

Metro Health’s thoracic surgeon, Lourens J. Willekes II, MD, specializes in treating patients with lung cancer, esophageal cancer and chest wall tumors as well as performing minimally invasive pulmonary surgery, diaphragm repair and more.
