Request a Consultation with a Thoracic Surgeon
As one of the leading thoracic surgery centers in the region, Tampa General Hospital diagnoses and treats a wide range of thoracic conditions, including lung cancer, esophageal cancer, emphysema, pulmonary infections, tuberculosis, and advanced stage lung tumors. Led by Director, Thoracic Surgery, Dr. K. Eric Sommers, one of the most experienced thoracic specialists in Florida, our integrative team consists of skilled surgeons and other medical professionals who are dedicated to providing expert patient evaluations and compassionate health care.
Typically, our thoracic surgeons require a referral from a specialist to schedule procedures, but we will offer consultations for second opinions. When you visit TGH for a second opinion, you will receive a comprehensive medical evaluation. Our surgeons will collaborate with a multidisciplinary team that includes oncologists, cardiologists, pulmonologists, radiologists, and nurses to assess your condition, evaluate your diagnosis, and determine the most appropriate form of treatment.
Thanks to recent technological advancements in thoracic surgery, there are now more ways than ever to improve patient outcomes. At TGH, we utilize the latest surgical tools and techniques for minimally invasive procedures such as video-assisted surgery and robot-assisted surgery with the da Vinci® Surgical System. These approaches have been shown to effectively reduce recovery times, decrease the risk of complications, lessen postoperative pain, and limit scarring.
