17 years ago I came to Dr Lanza as a second opinion for lung cancer surgery. My oncologist in Las Vegas told me to look for thoracic surgeons when the chemo ended. I interviewed surgeons in Las Vegas and was not satisfied. My first visit with Dr Lanza sold me in 5 minutes. His knowledge and confidence was exceptional. His excitement when finding out that lymph nodes he sent to pathology were clean of cancer endeared him to me.

Dear Dr, Lanza - it is 4 years ago today that you saved my mothers life. She was against all odds every other place told us so - she could literally die at any moment with her severe aortic stenosis. I am so grateful to have her hear on this earth for 4 more years thus far - your expertise, and strong encouragement, and every time she was unsure about the surgery, you met with her took the time each time (which was frequent in her case) was more than expected. Thank you for saving her life!
