Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Seder "I'm a general thoracic surgeon. I operate on all aspects of the chest - including the lungs, esophagus, mediastinum, chest wall. Most of the patients that we take care of have cancer. They show up, they're scared. They want someone on their side. And before I even see most of these patients, their studies, their imaging and their case is discussed with a multi-disciplinary team - including thoracic surgeons, radiation oncologists and medical oncologists. We are able to put everybody's mind together and come up with an approach that takes care of the whole patient, not just one aspect of their care. One of the best parts of doing what I do is that you can take patients who are exceedingly scared - because they've recently been given a diagnosis of cancer - and you can work with them, give them the information to make the choices that are best for them and their families, and then help them and work with them to get them through the process. I think it's very clear when patients leave my office that they know that they've got an ally on their side, because I'm in it for them."
