Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Ogwudu "Today if you need lung cancer surgery, you don't always have to have a large incision on your chest. I am pleased to bring minimally invasive lung cancer surgery (VATS lobectomy) to the Greater South Jersey area. Patients are more comfortable when they?re better informed, and I believe it?s my duty to provide as much ?evidence based? information as possible, and present it to you in a way that you can understand."
