Dr. Friedberg perform a very complex surgery to remove my right upper lobe after scar tissue had formed from chemo and radiation treatment. It took 10 hours for the surgery, and I recovered well. He is an amazing surgeon, and I highly recommend him to anyone needing thoracic surgery. 12/17/2019 Pasadena, MD

Dr. Joseph Friedberg was recommended by another surgeon that felt that he could not do my cancer surgery. Dr. Friedberg performed a very difficult operation and I am healing well. I highly recommend this skilled professional.
