Leading-edge Technological Advantages

If you need thoracic surgery, it is important to choose a team that is experienced with today’s sophisticated technology. Our surgeons do more procedures using da Vinci robotic-assisted technology and minimally invasive video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery than any other program in Delaware. We will take the time to explain your diagnosis, help you explore treatment options and guide you towards a treatment plan with your specific needs in mind.

A Dedicated Approach To Cancer Care

Our specialists participate in multi-disciplinary clinics at the Helen F. Graham Cancer Center & Research Institute to provide comprehensive, advanced treatment options for patients with lung, esophageal and other cancers of the chest. ChristianaCare was an early leader in this multi-disciplinary approach that brings together the expertise of surgeons, medical oncologists and radiation oncologists to provide the best possible, personalized treatment plan for each individual.

Leading The Way To Treatment Advances

Our specialists actively publish in national journals and participate in clinical research trials to provide patients with the most cutting-edge treatment options. We partner with the Wistar Institute of Philadelphia to develop translational research projects that can directly benefit patients in the future. Our physicians hold faculty appointments and train resident physicians.

At ChristianaCare, we are committed to providing expert, personalized care to help you breathe easier and get you back to what you love doing most.

Endobronchial Lung Volume Reduction

With endobronchial lung volume reduction - a newly FDA-approved breakthrough nonsurgical valve placement procedure for severe emphysema available in Delaware only at ChristianaCare - tiny, one-way valves block off diseased parts of the lung so healthier lung tissue can expand and take in more air.

Clinical studies show that almost immediately patients are able to:

  • Breathe easier.
  • Be more active and energetic.
  • Experience less shortness of breath.
  • Enjoy a significantly improved quality of life compared to untreated patients.
