A close up of some orange and yellow worms


We are an independent thoracic surgery practice based in the Merrimack Valley. We have affiliations with the area hospitals and the referring doctors. Our mission is to provide the most current and state-of-the-art treatment options in a multidisciplinary manner close to home. The ever-increasing population and the traffic problems make it very difficult for our patients to travel far for their care. We work closely with radiation oncology and the medical oncologists from Dana Farber and Lowell General Cancer Center. The extraordinary pulmonologists from InCare and Tufts Medicine work very closely with us. The intensivists from Lowell General Hospital, Lawrence General Hospital and Steward Healthcare support our practice very effectively. We have access to the latest technology such as Intuitive da Vinci robots, endobronchial ultrasound and navigational bronchoscopy.
