Thoracic Surgery

Doctors + Care Team

The thoracic surgeons at Tufts Medical Center (located in downtown in Boston) are among Boston's Top Doctors and offer the latest surgical techniques for the range of benign and malignant chest, lung and esophageal conditions.

As medical care and technology advances, so does the skill set of our surgeons and entire treatment team. At Tufts Medical Center we have invested in the most advanced, state of the art equipment including the newest generation of the DaVinci robotic surgical system. Our surgeons are dedicated to offer minimally invasive techniques including VATS (video-assisted thoracic surgery) and advanced robotic surgery so that our patients can experience the least amount of discomfort with the smallest and fewest incisions possible. This means that you go home sooner, often the day after surgery.

However, what truly sets our team apart is not our skill, but the compassion with which we provide care. Drs. Brinckerhoff and Lassaletta pride themselves in providing the best possible experience and outcomes for each and every patient. Please learn more about us below and contact us for more information or to make an appointment.
